The KSU lacrosse team sent the Eagles back to Statesboro with the blues following a 14-3 thrashing that was never in doubt.

KSU scored four goals in the first quarter and their defense held strong keeping the Eagles scoreless for the opening frame.

“Offensively we’ve been putting a lot of points up,” said head coach Ken Byers. “We’re off to a great start at 4-0, [which] matches the best we’ve ever done.”

GSU scored the opening goal of the second quarter to cut the Owls lead to 4-1, but three more KSU goals extended their lead to 7-1 by halftime.

In the third quarter, the Eagles scored two more goals, but the Owls added three more goals for the second quarter in a row, to take a 10-3 lead into the final period.

The fourth quarter was all KSU as the Owls added four more goals to complete the eleven-point victory.

“We’ve got a very challenging weekend coming up against Georgia State and UT-Chattanooga,” said Byers.

KSU will be back in action at home against Georgia State on Saturday, Feb. 21, and on Sunday, Feb. 22 the Owls will travel to Tennessee for a league game against UT-Chattanooga.
