BRIGHTON, Mich. – The Madonna University men's lacrosse team picked up their first win in program history on Thursday as they defeated the Cougars of Cleary University 12-9. The game, originally scheduled for March 15, was postponed due to inclement weather. The game was played at the Legacy Center in Brighton.

With the win, the Crusaders improve to 1-4 on the inaugural campaign while the Cougars dropped to 0-5 on the season.

The Crusaders scored first with a Jared Pieknik (FR/Swartz Creek, Mich.) goal less than two minutes into play. Pieknik finished with three goals on eight shots, along with three assists and three ground balls.

Logan Roda (FR/Harrison Charter Twn, Mich.) also netted a hat trick to pair with six groundballs and was a large part of the Crusaders winning 17 of the 25 face-offs over the duration of the game.

Jake Hwier (FR/West Bloomfield, Mich.), Michael Kolodin (SO/West Bloomfield, Mich.), and Connor Humitz (JR/Livonia, Mich.) also added two goals apiece to round out the Crusaders scoring efforts.

The key to the contest was six straight unanswered goals by the Crusaders as Humitz scored twice to start the run before Roda, Kolodin and Hwier each added a tally.

The Crusaders are back in action on Friday, March 17 as they host the Grey Wolves of Lourdes. The opening faceoff is set for 4 p.m.
