The KSU men’s lacrosse team defeated Georgia State, 18-4, on the intramural field Saturday, Feb. 21.

The Owls entered into Saturday’s game riding a four-game winning streak after a win last weekend against Georgia Southern (16-4). Georgia State came into the match with two wins and two loses.

“The biggest win in our programs history,” said head coach Ken Byers.

The Owls’ midfielder Charles Roland began the scoring for his team within moments of the game starting. Tim Minick followed up with a goal of his own quickly after.

“Were extremely excited about this season,” said junior Tim Minick. “We put together the best team in [KSU] history.”

Minick led the way with five goals while Scott Schulze scored four goals to go along with three assists. Justin McKay had a break out performance, scoring four goals and dishing out three assists.

Goalkeeper Noah Rosenblum turned away 8-of-12 shots while close defenders Matt Bryne, James Faucette and Murray Webb played gritty defense.

“We had a great game,” said junior Brian Witt. “The rest of the guys pulled together and made it happen.”

The win over Georgia State increased the Owls streak to five games, and they remain undefeated at 5-0.

Their next game will take place away on Sunday, Feb. 22 against UT–Chattanooga at 2:00 p.m.
