Mount Lax opens season with loss

Mount Lax opens season with loss

Location: Schueler Field (Cincinnati, Ohio) 

The Basics:

The Mount St. Joseph men's lacrosse team got new head coach Jason Susshine's collegiate coaching career off to an unceremonious start, with an 18-0 loss to Centre College. The young Lions are sure to grow from this experience.

How it Happened:

The Lions welcomed the Colonels of Centre College to the snow covered Schueler Field. This version of the Lions lacrosse team may be the youngest team in the nation. Especially when lacrosse experience is taken into account. 

The Colonels dominated the action on the field though, taking the opening faceoff and moving down the field to score in the games first 10 seconds. The Lions would not dent the scoreboard, but would earn valuable experience that could help down the road. 

Up Next:

The Mount (0-1) will play host to Trine (1-0) for another non-conference matchup. The game is scheduled to face off at 2:00 PM Saturday, Feb. 24 on Schueler Field. Tune into msjsports.com for your live game coverage.
