West Point, GA. – The Knights lacrosse team began their springs break trip on a rocky start Monday, falling to Point University 5-4. The loss drops the Knights record to 3-2 on the season. 

Box Score

Marian started the scoring in this afternoon's contest as Kori Garland continued her hot scoring streak, cashing in on the free position shot just 2:23 into the game. Garland would add two more goals later in the contest, as the freshman has scored at least two goals in every game this season.

The Knights hot start soon faded, as Point University scored three goals over the next five minutes of play. Garland scored her second goal with 11 minutes to go in the first half, but Point responded by scoring again before halftime, leaving Marian trailing 4-2 at intermission.  

Point University extended their lead 10 minutes into the second half, as they scored what would be the game-winning goal to make the score 5-2. Miranda Bridges scored her first goal of the season, as the goalie turned attack narrowed the score to 5-3. Garland scored her final goal of the afternoon with eight minutes to go, putting Marian in position to complete the comeback. The Knights continued to fire shots, but could not find any success.

Marian's biggest struggle came on free-position shots. The Knights went 0-3 in the second half and 1-6 in the game, while Point found better success, going 2-5 on such attempts.

Despite giving up five goals, Casey Monahan played a solid game guarding the net. The keeper recorded 15 saves after facing 27 shots.

Marian will take the field again Wednesday, as the Knights will travel to Truett-McConnell College. Start time will be 4:00 p.m.
