INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian lacrosse team earned a 14-8 win in its inaugural home game Tuesday night over Franklin on St. Vincent Field in Indianapolis. The win makes Marian 2-1 on the season.

The Knights wasted no time getting on the board as Breanna DeJong found the back of the net just over a minute into the contest. DeJong's goal gave Marian an early advantage to work with and it would only get better from there. Minutes later, Julia Robson netted a goal to double the Knight lead and DeJong then scored two more goals before the game was even eight minutes old.

Franklin broke through nine minutes in with its first goal of the game to trim the Marian lead to 4-1, but Robson responded with her second of the night to put the advantage back at four. Another Franklin goal came with 17 minutes to play in the half, but the Knights were quick to respond once more as DeJong scored her fourth of the game.

DeAnna Maasarani scored a goal off a Paula Angarita Rivera assist with 10:34 to play in the half and Robson found the back of the net again four minutes later. Down 8-2, Franklin scored twice before the end of the half to make it 8-4 at the break.

The Grizzlies then scored to open the second half, but Kori Garland kicked off her torrid second half with a goal to answer five minutes in. After Lexi Ingram netted her second-straight goal a minute later, Marian responded with four-straight goals -- two from Garland, one from Rachel Moning and another from Morgan Bruce.

Franklin managed two more goals the rest of the way, while Garland tacked on one more to give her four total for the game. The two teams tied with 27 shots apiece, while Casey Monohan made nine saves in the net. Marian will be back in action Friday at home against Madonna at 4 p.m. Your online source for Marian Athletics, tickets, multimedia, Knight merchandise, photos and more.
