The Quinnipiac University women’s lacrosse team will host the 2008 Northeast Conference tournament this weekend.

Finishing in a three-way tie for first place at 7-1, the Bobcats beat out Sacred Heart and Monmouth by virtue of a tiebreaker. Quinnipiac earned the top overall seed by allowing the fewest goals with 52 over the eight conference games.

The Bobcats will take on No. 4 Mount St. Mary’s on Friday as 12 p.m.

No. 2 seeded SHU will take on defending champion and No. 3 seed Monmouth in the other semi-final.

Winners of each semi-final will face off Sunday at 12 p.m. with a berth in the NCAA tournament on the line.
