Liberty will honor its senior class on Sunday.
The 18th-ranked Liberty field hockey squad will wrap up its 2019 regular season schedule with a pair of home games against ranked teams on Friday and Sunday.
First, the Lady Flames will take on the 25th-ranked Providence Friars (12-5, 4-2 BIG EAST) in their BIG EAST regular season finale, Friday at 3 p.m. at the Liberty Field Hockey Field. Both teams have already secured a spot in next week's BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship, which will run from Nov. 8-10 at the Quinnipiac Field Hockey Stadium in Hamden, Conn.
However, the game will have seeding implications, with the winner receiving the No. 3 seed in the tournament and the loser getting the No. 4 seed.
Sunday is Senior Day at the Liberty Field Hockey Field, where the program will honor its senior class with a special ceremony prior to taking on the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils (12-5) at 1 p.m. The program will take time to recognize seniors Allison Schaefer, Mallory Fortenbaugh, Annika Roberts, Merich Frizzell and Sydney Baffone.
The Lady Flames are looking to snap a three-game losing skid, with each of those losses coming to top-10 teams (No. 1 North Carolina, No. 3 Connecticut and No. 6 Virginia). Liberty fell 1-0 at No. 6 Virginia on Monday evening in its most recent match.
Providence enters Friday's contest on a five-game winning streak. The Friars most recently defeated Rider 1-0 on their Senior Day, last Sunday in Providence, R.I. Duke is coming off a 3-0 home victory against Richmond (Sunday).
