INDIANAPOLIS - Lacrosse was back as Marian returned home from their spring break trip Saturday, ready for a noon matchup with Benedictine. Marian entered the game short-handed, as injuries reduced the number of healthy Knights to 11 players. Marian gave a valiant effort, competing the entire game. The team's effort went for not, as Benedictine bested Marian 8-5. Marian's record is now 4-4 this season.

Marian started the game on the right note, as Morgan Bruce and Kori Garland scored two minutes from each other to give Marian the early 2-0 lead. Benedictine responded, trimming the deficit to 2-1. The Knights offense remained calm, patiently adding another two goals behind the work of Reagan Riddle and Garland. 

Benedictine began to break through Marian's defense, as the Ravnes scored six striaght goals, giving them a 7-4 lead with 18 minutes to play in the game. Garland scored again adding another hat trick to resume this season, but it was not enough, as the Ravens scored an insurance goal with three minutes remaining to ensure Benedictine's 8-5 victory. 

The lack of depth hurt Marian, as the team was only able to able get 10 shots off, compared to Benedictine's 30 shots. 

Garland led the Knights with three goals, converting three of her team high six shots. 

Marian will be back in action next Thursday as they host Lindenwood-Belleville.
