INDIANAPOLIS - Behind seven combined goals from Morgan Bruce and Kori Garland, the Marian women's lacrosse team defeated Madonna 14-2 Friday night on St. Vincent Field in Indianapolis. The win makes Marian 3-1 this season.


It took less than a minute for the Knights to get on the board as Rachel Moning found the back of the net 59 seconds after the opening draw. Moning was assisted by Kori Garland who then rattled off three-straight goals in a nine-minute span. Garland scored the first off of a free position shot.

"This is a great start for us as this was our first game against NAIA competition," said head coach Lauren Davis. "There's still plenty of work to be done, but this result gives us confidence heading into an extended road trip." 

With 16:04 to play in the first half, Julia Robson netted her first goal of the game off an assist from Deanna Maasarani. 32 seconds later she assisted Reagan Riddle and then scored her second goal of the game with 8:12 left to play in the half. Riddle scored one more goal in the half off an assist from Robson to make it 9-0 heading into the locker room.

In the second half, Morgan Bruce took over. She scored the first four goals of the half and did so in an eight-minute span. Robson added another goal to make it 13-0 before Madonna scored its first career goal when Samantha Schwartz found the back of the net. Maasarani later answered with a goal off a Moning assist. Madonna tacked on one more goal with a free position shot.

Bruce led the way with four goals, while Garland scored three and assisted two more. Robson scored three goals and dished out two assists as well. Riddle scored two goals on four shots. Marian outshot Madonna 29-13 and Casey Monahan made seven saves in the net.

The Knights leave for a three-game road trip next week and will face Point University at 4 p.m. March 6. Your online source for Marian Athletics, tickets, multimedia, Knight merchandise, photos and more.
