Marquette takes down Detroit Mercy, 8-6
March 5, 2017
MILWAUKEE – Andy DeMichiei and Kyran Clarke each scored a pair of goals as the Marquette University men’s lacrosse team defeated Detroit Mercy, 8-6, on Sunday afternoon at Valley Fields in the Midwest Lacrosse Classic.
“Results aside, we improved as a team and that’s the goal this time of year,” Marquette head coach Joe Amplo said. “There is a long season to go and we can’t lose sight of that. I told the guys in the locker room, we have set the bar so high for this program, and rightfully so. That expectation is a good thing and a bad thing and I think we are starting to feel that a little bit. It’s hard for those kids because there’s external expectations and there’s internal expectations – and that’s a tough thing to manage as an 18- to 22-year old kid. I am proud of them for fighting a tough, scrappy Detroit team and coming out with a win today.”
The Golden Eagles (2-2) also received goals from Ryan McNamara, Jack Zerrillo, Joe Dunn and John Wagner as MU out-shot Detroit Mercy, 34-27.
Junior goalie Cole Blazer followed up Friday's program record 18 saves with another 13 on Sunday, including five in the first quarter.
