    Liberty will play its final regular season game at ASUN foe Kennesaw State on Saturday afternoon. First draw is noon at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Ga.

    Liberty (9-7) and Kennesaw State (11-5) both bring 3-1 ASUN marks into the weekend. The winner of the game will receive the No. 2 seed for next weekend’s 2022 ASUN Women’s Lacrosse Championship.

    Meanwhile, the loser will be the No. 3 seed. Regardless of the outcome of Saturday’s game, the two squads will meet in the semifinals of the ASUN Tournament, next Thursday (4 p.m.) at Jacksonville’s Rock Stadium. No. 22 Jacksonville (11-3, 5-0 ASUN) has secured the ASUN regular season title and the No. 1 seed for the tournament. The No. 4 seed will be determined by Saturday’s game between Coastal Carolina (5-10, 1-3 ASUN) and Stetson (4-10, 1-3 ASUN).
