Matchup -- Philadelphia Barrage (9-2) @ Bayhawks (4-7)

Site -- Johnny Unitas Stadium

Time -- 7

Outlook -- The Bayhawks will miss the Major League Lacrosse postsea son for the first time in the league's six-year history, making tonight's sea son finale against first-place Philadel phia the last chance for a group of rookies to prove they are worthy of starting roles next season. The Bay hawks' 23-16 loss at Boston last Satur day knocked them out of contention and created a three-way tie for last place in the Eastern Conference. While the Bayhawks will try to stay out of the cellar, the Barrage looks to clinch the Eastern Conference title before heading to Championship Weekend in Los Angeles on Aug. 25. Ryan Boyle (Gilman) had five goals and four assists July 27 to lead Phila delphia to a 22-11 win in the teams' previous meeting. Attackman Matt Ward (30 points) has a chance to be come the second consecutive Bay hawk to win Rookie of the Year hon ors, after defenseman Brodie Merrill claimed the award last season.
