A sunny Saturday afternoon at KSU was just what the men’s lacrosse team had hoped for on their opening day game against the Middle Tennesse Blue Raiders. The Owls dominated the KSU intramural field in a 17-6 victory over the Blue Raiders.

In a spectacular third quarter, the Owls scored four times within two minutes, with goals from Tim Minick, Chris Lanquist, Alex Herrmann and Scott Schulze. While on offense for the majority of the game, the Owls also played dazzling defense, led by Noah Rosenblum, who ended up with 15 saves to his name.

Coming off their eight wins and eleven losses last season, this home opener was exactly what the Owls needed to build momentum going into their next few games.

“We gained experienced from last year and came out strong,” said head coach Byers. “We played everyone and some people moved up and some people moved down.”

With the unstoppable offense and the stonewall defense, the Owls showed tremendous effort out on the field. Hoping to ride the momentum through next weekend, the Owls will face off against UNC - Greensboro Sat., Feb. 7, and then on Sun., Feb. 8 against Mercer.
