The Ris­ing Sun girls’ lacrosse team starts its sec­ond sea­son this af­ter­noon.

The Tigers earned the sec­ond seed in the 3A-2A North Re­gion Sec­tion II Tour­na­ment and will host East­ern Tech­ni­cal, out of Bal­ti­more, at 5 p.m.

Ris­ing Sun saw its sixgame win­ning streak snapped on Thurs­day at the hands of North East. Play was re­sumed from a weather-de­layed game more than a month prior, so the teams only took the field to make up the fi­nal 18:48. The Tigers, a team that had strug­gled with slow starts this sea­son, saw their two-goal lead dis­ap­pear. The loss was Ris­ing Sun’s first in three weeks.

The Tigers (7-5) fell to up­per-di­vi­sion North Har­ford two days later, 15-4, and are en­ter­ing the post­sea­son look­ing to end the mini-skid. East­ern Tech­ni­cal fell to the Hawks 16-1 on March 31.

The Mav­er­icks en­ter with just one win on the cam­paign, a 13-2 win over Aberdeen—a team Ris­ing Sun de­feated 12-5. East­ern Tech­ni­cal fell to an­other UCABC team, Har­ford Tech, 14-9, on April 27.

If Ris­ing Sun earns the first-round win Wed­nes­day, it will host ei­ther CM Wright or Aberdeen on Fri­day.
