NORFOLK, Va. - The Old Dominion lacrosse team will play its final home game of the season Friday night against No. 9 James Madison. The contest, which will get underway at 7 p.m., will be the final home game for six ODU seniors.

Friday's game will also be the lacrosse programs annual scholarship game. Tickets are $5 with the proceeds benefiting the ODU Intercollegiate Foundation for Lacrosse. ODU students can still get in free with a valid ID.

The Lady Monarchs (2-10, 0-4 CAA) are coming off a pair of hard-fought losses at home last weekend that included a two-goal loss to No. 11 Towson and a double-overtime heartbreaker against Delaware.

Attacker Ashley Kellogg led ODU with nine goals on only 11 shots last week, while goalkeeper Sarah Geary made a season-high 18 saves in the close loss to Towson.

James Madison (11-2, 4-0) enters Friday riding a four-game winning streak. The Dukes upended No. 16 Hofstra 14-8 on Sunday. Kim Griffin leads JMU with 47 points on 32 goals and 15 assists.

Prior to Friday's game, seniors Katherine Bruno, Jessica Capra, Saratu Dodo, D'Ana Goodfellow, Ashley Kellogg and Nicole McMahon will be honored for their achievements during their time at ODU.

ODU will also be in action on Sunday, traveling to George Mason for a 1 p.m. battle against the Patriots.
