Lynchburg, Va. -- By way of its unbeaten record through the Old Dominion Athletic Conference regular season, the University of Lynchburg field hockey team earned the right to play host to this coming weekend's conference championship.

The semifinal games will take place Friday, Nov. 2 at 5 and 7:30 p.m. on Lynchburg's Shellenberger Field, and the championship is slated for 6 p.m. the following evening, Saturday, Nov. 3. Admission for each day is $10 for adults and $5 for children; students of participating schools will be admitted free of charge by showing their student IDs.

Top-seeded Lynchburg will take on No. 4 seed Roanoke in Friday's early contest, followed by No. 2 seed Shenandoah and third-seeded Washington and Lee. The game's winners will square off for the title and the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III tournament.

Roanoke defeated Randolph-Macon, 1-0, Tuesday in first-round action, while Washington and Lee moved into the semifinals with a 3-0 win over Bridgewater.
