CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Six former Loyola University Maryland men's lacrosse teammates will be on the same field Saturday night in a Major League Lacrosse game that will be televised live on ESPN2 starting at 8 p.m.

Attackers Eric Lusby and Mike Sawyer, defender Steve Dircks and newly-acquired midfielder Josh Hawkins will line up for the Charlotte Hounds across the field from Boston Cannons long-stick midfielder Scott Ratliff and defender P.T. Ricci.

Hawkins joined the Hounds this week when he was acquired in a MLL trade deadline deal from the Hamilton Nationals. Saturday's game will be his first in a Charlotte uniform.

Earlier this season, Boston edged the Hounds, 15-13, in the Tar Heel State on June 15. Sawyer had a goal and an assist for Charlotte, while Ricci tallied a transition goal for Boston, and Ratliff picked up two groundballs for the Cannons.

In addition to it being broadcast on ESPN2, Saturday's game will be available on WatchESPN and ESPN3.
