INDIANAPOLIS - The Marian women's lacrosse team shook off a two-game losing streak and defeated Lindenwood-Belleville 11-6 Thursday at St. Vincent Field in Indianapolis. The Knights are now 5-4 with the win.

The Knights jumped on the Lynx early, scoring the first four goals of the game unanswered. Kori Garland found the back of the net first with 16:25 to play in the half and then Julia Robson tacked on her first two goals of the game in less than 90 seconds. Rachel Moning assisted Robson's first goal and she then scored one herself with 3:40 to play in the half. Lindenwood-Belleville got on the board late in the half when India Cyr scored with 43 seconds to play.

After Robson scored off a Garland assist with 23:58 to play, the Lynx mounted a comeback. Trailing 5-1, LU-Belleville scored twice to bring the Marian lead to just two. However, the Knights received another goal from Robson with 19:02 to play and DeAnna Maaserani was credited with the assist. Cyr scored with 15 minutes to play to bring the Lynx within three, but Robson and Garland made sure there would be no comeback. 

Garland assisted Robson with 14:37 to play and then scored a goal for herself off an assist from Maaserani with 12:49 left. With 9:05 remaining, Robson added another off a pass from Moning. After a Lynx goal with 7:43 to play, Garland and Robson each added one more goal apiece. Belleville scored the final goal, but it was not enough.

Robson finished with seven goals on the afternoon, while also assisting another. Garland scored three and assisted two, while Moning scored one and assisted two more. Maaserani finished with two assists. The Knights outshot LU-Belleville 32-22 and Casey Monahan made eight saves in the net.
