GRANTHAM, Pa. - #7 Lebanon Valley set up an NCAA Third Round match-up with #1 Messiah after shutting out #8 Rowan, 3-0, in the NCAA Second Round Saturday.

The Dutchmen (19-3) will take on the undefeated Falcons (20-0) Sunday at 3:30 p.m. in the regional final as they bid for their fifth Final Four appearance and third in four years.
