Jimmy Watt got the win in net, saving seven of nine shots on goal. A solid defensive effort by the defensemen and midfielders stymied the Wolverines and held them scoreless in the first half. James Burkhardt, Jordan Matheny and Tim Hansen each recorded six groundballs, to help the Saints' win the possession game.
Leading the offense was freshman Grant Holloway, who had the best game of his young career with four goals . Sophomore Josh Jeszke opened the scoring for the Saints, and finished with two goals. Freshman Zack Brancheau scored his seventh goal of the season and Jacob Jeffers added an assist.
Despite the low score, it was a record setting game for a pair of Saints' seniors. With his three assists, Nate McCorry became the third men's lacrosse player to record 100 career points. After a one goal, two assist performance, Tyler Rosema now has 108 career points, moving him into first place on the all-time scoring list.
