Men’s Lacrosse Makes History with first win


The Muskingum Men’s Lacrosse team made history Wednesday by getting their first win in just their second game. The Muskies beat Fransiscan 4-3 at McConogah Stadium.

The Muskies started with a stellar first half effort by goalie Taylor Masterson who only allowed one goal. Masterson would play all 60 minutes in goal and finish with 13 saves.

The first two Muskie goals came from attacker Andrew Buchbinder who scored the first unassisted and the second off of a Zach Kern pass. Kern would score the third to give the Muskies a 3-1 lead at halftime.

Fransiscan would comeback though as Mark Hanlon cut the lead to a one point game with 10:52 left in the third quarter, as the score was 3-2.

The final Muskie goal was scored by Buchbinder for his third of the contest as he put the Muskies up 4-2 going into the fourth.

Fransiscan attacker Mike Rosaschi scored with 09:58 to go in the fourth quarter.

Perhaps the play of the game cam from Masterson in the final seconds as the Barons’ David Erskine had a point blank shot on the muskie goal and Masterson came up with the save as time expired.

The Muskies (1-1) will next play against Calvin at home on Saturday at 11 a.m looking for their second win in program history.
