Golden Eagles Claim Game Two, 15-13, over England
June 18, 2016
PRATO, Italy - Twelve Golden Eagles scored on Saturday afternoon and Ryan McNamara posted a game-high four goals as the Marquette University men's lacrosse team picked up its second victory over Team England with a 15-13 win.
Marquette began the day in Piazza San Marco in Prato before heading for a tour of city's museum and a civic reception along with the English team and the local minister of sport.
After a lunch break, the Golden Eagles returned to ASD Maliseti for a clinic and game two of their trip against the English.
Blaine Fleming, Brett Hornung and Jack Zerrillo scored the game's first three goals and MU took a 6-4 edge into the half. The English shot back in the third quarter to build a three goal lead before MU rallied with seven goals to start the fourth quarter and put the game out of reach.
Marquette will play its final game of the trip on Sunday morning against England before visiting Pisa later in the afternoon.
