Pro lacrosse team set for its first homecoming weekend

The Philadelphia Waterdogs, the city’s professional men’s field lacrosse team, have been waiting since November for this coming weekend.

The Premier Lacrosse League side has played in Springfield, Va., and Albany, N.Y. since it was assigned to a home city last year, but not in Philly. 

Now, the Waterdogs are on the cusp of a first-ever Homecoming Weekend at Villanova Stadium, where the side will take on the Boston Cannons and the Maryland Whipsnakes.

The homecoming means more to Jake Richard than a few of his teammates. The short-stick defensive midfielder, Team USA gold medalist and newly-appointed head coach at Marquette is originally from West Chester. He joined the Waterdogs from the New York Atlas at the beginning of the season.
