Showdown on the Shore

Gettysburg at Washington (Men's Lacrosse)
What's on the line in this powerhouse matchup between the #2 ranked Bullets (3-0 CC, 8-1) and the #3 Shoremen (4-0, 9-0)? Besides the obvious - first place in the Conference - every season since 2001, the winner of this game has gone on to host the Centennial final four. And only once in that seven-year span has a visiting team captured the CC title. Gettysburg has won six straight in the series to take an 18-14 overall lead. Washington's last win was a 9-8 triumph in the 2004 NCAA tournament in Chestertown. The matchup to watch - Shoremen A Chris Read versus Bullet D Andrew McGann.

Gettysburg at Haverford (Baseball)
The Bullets (4-1, 12-12) travel to the Main Line to take on the Fords (3-2, 14-6-1) in a Saturday twinbill. Haverford has won six of the last seven games to take a 15-12 all-time lead in the series. Gettysburg has not won at Class of '16 Field since 1999 and to change that, the Orange and Blue will have to slow down the Ford running game that leads the CC with 76 stolen bases.

Gettysburg at Swarthmore (Softball)
Two of the three winningest teams in the Conference square off in a doubleheader along Crum Creek. The Bullets (2-2, 10-7) and the Garnet (1-1, 12-8) feature a pair of the Centennial's top pitchers in Gettysburg's Kristy Rubino (6-3, 2.23, 73 K in 62.2 IP) and Swarthmore's Kathryn Riley (8-4, 1.82, 77 K in 77 IP).
