Wednesday night's road contest against Centennial Conference foe Swarthmore is no longer an ordinary game for Washington College, which needs the victory to clinch a berth in the conference tournament. A win over the Garnet would give the No. 10 Shoremen (11-3 overall and 4-3 in the league) at least the No. 4 seed in the Centennial Conference tournament. If No. 19 Gettysburg (8-5, 4-2) was to lose to Franklin & Marshall (9-4, 5-1) and McDaniel (5-10, 2-5), Washington would move up to the No. 3 seed.

Kirby Jr. Field in Chestertown Wednesday night and then the Shoreman will travel to meet Salisbury in another installment of their War on the Shore series. Even so, coach Jeff Shirk said the players are taking the setback in stride. “We talked to them a little bit [Sunday], and I think it was a little bit of disappointment because we felt like we really let one slip away,” Shirk said Monday.
