Mount Union's men's lacrosse team will play Chatham (Pa.) Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Rooney Field on the campus of Duquesne University in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Purple Raiders are 1-0 on the season after an 11-10 win last Saturday at Thiel (Pa.) while this will be the season-opener Cougars, whose campus is just over three miles east of Rooney Field in the Shadyside neighborhood.

It will be the second-ever meeting between the teams as Chatham posted an 8-7 win in Alliance in 2019.

Located high atop the Bluff in the center of the Duquesne University campus, Arthur J. Rooney Athletic Field is one of the most unique multi-purpose facilities in the nation. Bordered by Academic Walk on one side and Mellon Hall of Science and Keller Fieldhouse on either end, Rooney Field offers scenic views of downtown Pittsburgh, the Monongahela River and Pittsburgh's historic South Side.

Rooney Field, which serves as the home to Duquesne football, soccer and lacrosse, is named in honor of Duquesne University football letterman and founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers National Football League team, Art Rooney.

There is no on-site parking so fans must use available street parking in the area.
