Defense leads Griffins past Defiance

The Fontbonne University men's lacrosse team used a stingy defense to cruise past Defiance College on Saturday 9-1. The Griffins improved to 7-4 overall and 3-2 in the Midwest Lacrosse Conference.

The Griffins outshot Defiance 53-18 and didn't allow a goal until the 8:01 mark of the fourth quarter. Griffin senior Peter Travis scored a team-high four goals while fellow senior Colin Benecke tallied two goals and two assists. Fontbonne freshman Brian Furrow also recorded two goals. Griffin senior goalie Chad Meurer made 10 saves in cage for the Griffins.

Fontbonne returns to the field on Saturday as they host Milwaukee School of Engineering at 3:30 pm.
