Coming up short

by Amanda Jarzynski


With just a few games left in their regular season, Benedictine men’s lacrosse dropped an away game against Concordia Wisconsin 10-5 on Saturday.

The Eagles carried a lot of momentum coming into the Concordia game. The Eagles won the two previous games by a substantial amount, over 10 points more than their competitors.

Concordia were the ones who opened the scoring against Benedictine just two minutes into the game. The Eagles responded with two goals coming from Trevor Buman and Brendon Berg. Both teams tallied one more point apiece for a score of 3-2 Benedictine after one quarter.

Concordia dominated the second quarter, scoring three goals and keeping the Eagles from getting any goals. This helped them gain the lead and keep the lead going into halftime.

The score was 5-3 Concordia at the start of halftime. The Eagles needed to work harder to score goals and regain the lead.

Berg opened the scoring in the third quarter, but Concordia responded with three more goals. Again, they kept the Eagles from getting any more goals. In the fourth and final quarter, Concordia extended their lead to 9-4. The Eagles got one more goal from Buman with nine minutes left to play. Concordia responded with a goal to bring their total up to the final score of 10-5.

The Eagles have Conference record of five wins and three loses. Their biggest challenge is still to come when they face Aurora University on Wednesday.

Their last game will be played on Saturday at home against Fontbonne University at 1:00 p.m.
