Liberty will wrap up its regular season with an ASUN contest against the Howard Bison on Friday evening.

First draw between the Lady Flames (12-4, 4-1 ASUN) and Bison (0-12, 0-4 ASUN) is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Liberty Lacrosse Field.

Friday is Senior Day for the Liberty women's lacrosse program. The Lady Flames will honor their seven seniors – Brittany Tickle, Kaitlyn Cassidy-Fischetti, Faith Wells, Rachel Johnson, Katherine Widrick, Brianna McCaffrey and Kayla Foster – prior to the game.

Liberty is coming off a 23-6 victory at Kent State, Wednesday afternoon. With the win, the Lady Flames clinched the No. 2 seed for the ASUN Lacrosse Championship, which will begin next Thursday at Coastal Carolina's Brooks Stadium in Conway, S.C.

Howard is in search of its first win of the year. The Bison fell 22-0 to Furman, last Saturday.

The Lady Flames hold a 3-1 edge in the all-time series with the Bison. The two teams have not met in nearly eight years and will be facing off for the first time as ASUN Conference members. Liberty topped Howard 16-13 in the last meeting, April 30, 2011.
