MONTREAT, N.C. – The Madonna University men's lacrosse team scored a season-high six goals in a 17-6 loss to Montreat College to wrap up their 2017 spring trip.

The loss drops the Crusaders to 0-4 on the inaugural campaign, but they have showed improvement with each game.

It was a rough opening quarter as the Cavaliers jumped out to a 7-1 lead, but Madonna played the home team to a 2-2 tie in the second for a 9-3 halftime margin.

The Crusaders added two more tallies in the third and one in the fourth, but eight second half goals by the Cavaliers accounted for the final margin.

Logan Roda (FR/Harrison Charter Twn, Mich.) continued to excel on the trip as he netted two more goals, bringing his two-game total to five. Jake Hwier (FR/West Bloomfield, Mich.) also scored twice while Connor Humitz (JR/Livonia, Mich.) netted one goal and had an assist. The final tally came from Michael Kolodin (SO/West Bloomfield, Mich.) who also had an assist. 

Madonna totaled 43 shots to Montreat's 48, converted 24 for 26 clears and won half of the face-offs, all season-bests.

The Crusaders return home for a three-game homestand beginning on Wednesday, Mar. 15 at 4 p.m. against Cleary University. On Friday, Mar. 17 the Crusaders welcome No. 2 Lourdes to the Madonna Athletics Complex for a 4 p.m. start before Indiana Tech comes to town on Wednesday, Mar. 22, a 3 p.m. face-off.
