St. Paul, Minn. – It was a historic day in Minnesota, as the Marian Lacrosse team took the field for their inaugural game. Marian dominated Northland College in their first ever game, shutting out the Jills 22-0. The Knights are now 1-0 on the young season, and look to use this success as the season carries on. 

Box Score

Marian dominated the game from the early going, scoring their first goal just 23 seconds into the game. Freshman Breanna DeJong cleared the defense and found the back of the goal, scoring the first of her four goals on the day. Not only was it DeJong's first goal of the day, it was also the first goal in Marian Lacrosse history. Marian didn't take long to strike again, as fellow freshman Julia Robson scored just 28 seconds later to give the Knights a 2-0 lead less than one minute of play. Marian continued to score, as they led 17-0 after the first 30 minutes of play.

"Today was team win with contributions from everyone," said coach Lauren Davis. "Every single girl that dressed today scored a goal. We have a lot of work to do but are very excited to see what the rest of the season holds."

Marian continued to hold their dominance in the second half, adding five goals to their lead. The Knights defense played at an elite level in today's contest, as they did not allow a single shot from Northland in the entire game. Marian's defense made life easy on goalie Casey Monahan, as she went on to pick up her first career shut-out.

Leading goal scorers for Marian were Dejong, Robson, and Kori Garland, who each scored four goals. Robson was a dominating force in the final box score, as she scored 10 points after leading the team with six assists. DeJong and Garland each scored five points. Deanna Maasarani scored two goals, while Morgan Bruce recorded three assists. Every Knight that played in today's game scored at least one goal.

Marian will be back in action tomorrow as they will take on Concordia St. Paul. Opening face-off is set for 12:00 p.m. Your online source for Marian Athletics, tickets, multimedia, Knight merchandise, photos and more.
