The Florida Gator lacrosse team is hosting the English National Team in an exhibition match at Donald R. Dizney Stadium Thursday.
This is the second year in a row that the Gators will match up against the English squad in a preseason matchup. Last year, the Gators dominated the Brits 17-2.
Florida is looking for even better things this year after an excellent season a year ago when it finished 19-3 while making the NCAA Final Four. Gator head coach Amanda O’Leary is disappointed about losing in last year’s NCAA Tournament, but is excited to begin the new season.
O’Leary will play a difficult non-conference schedule, but she says playing these tough teams will enable the Gators to improve.
First draw of the exhibition match is at 6 pm.
