Titan Lacrosse Getting Some Buzz, Both Local & National
The Detroit Titans will finally play a home game, after four straight on the road to open the season, as UDM hosts Mercer this Saturday, Feb. 26, at 3:00 p.m., at Ultimate Soccer Arenas in Pontiac.
Tickets for the home opener are set at $10 for adults (18 and over) and $7 for all students (with proper ID) and children. There will be no advance sale of tickets so the only way to purchase them will be at the gate on game day. More information on the game can be found by clicking here.
Detroit is winless on the year, but that is a product of the tough schedule the Titans have played as the red, white and blue have traveled to No. 17 Delaware, No. 4 Maryland as well as to Ohio State and Bellarmine. OSU was not ranked when the Titans faced them, a tough 4-3 setback, but the Buckeyes are now ranked 13th in the country in the latest USILA coaches poll.
