Griffins sweep MLC weekly awards
Fontbonne University's Colin Benecke and Mike Liebrich were named the Midwest Lacrosse Conference Players of the Week Monday.
Benecke, a senior attacker from Eureka, Missouri and Vianney High School (Sports Management major), scored the game-winning goal with 32 seconds remaining during an 11-10 victory over Trine on Saturday. In addition, Benecke assisted on Tucker Nickols' game-tying goal with 3:41 left. Benecke led the Griffins with two goals and three assists for five points.
Liebrich, a senior defender from Oak Park, Illinois and Oak Park-River Forest High School (Special Education major), helped lead the defense with two ground balls and three caused turnovers during the Griffins' win over Trine. He also helped direct a perfect 8-for-8 effort on clear attempts.
