Missouri Western Lacrosse came back from Spring Break with a 3-0 road trip for a 6-4 overall record.
First up were the Bobcats who were not going down without a fight. Despite their efforts, the Griffons came out on top 11-10.
Despite a handful of Griffons returning to the Blue Crab State, one native got back to her roots on the field too. Madison Brady had her first multi-goal game since going down on March 10 against Grand Valley.
She was able to put three in the back of the net against Frostburg State.
Looking past her stellar performance on the field, Brady says her memories from this game will come from team bonding.
During their trek to Bobcat stadium, Griffon Lacrosse stopped by “Mama Brady’s” house.
“To host a team dinner at my house was amazing,” said Brady. “Because a lot of us are not from Maryland, they share their cultures and families with us constantly, so it's great to show them the East Coast side of things.”
Lightning became a factor when Missouri Western brought the thunder against the University of Charleston winning 10-2. The Golden Eagles were down three goals to nothing against the Griffons on March 23. The game was canceled and slated to try again on March 24 at 6 p.m.
Before the postponement, Amani Robinson was a big part of the Griffons lead with getting two in the back of the net past the Golden Eagles.
The magic did not stop for Robinson on Wednesday night. She got another goal in the continuation on Thursday night.
Before the game against Charleston, Robinson never experienced a game day broken up because of weather.
“Honestly, it felt really slow coming out even during warm ups. I feel like we lost our mojo a little bit. It would’ve been a higher scoring game if we would have continued to play yesterday,” said Robinson.
Missouri Western collected a win against Davis & Elkins before heading home, beating them 18-5. Mikalea Ness filibustered the Senators with five goals. Other contributing Griffons on the night were Tamrin Swann and Morgan Nicholson with three goals each.
Missouri Western Lacrosse will be back home on April 2 where they will start GLVC play for the rest of the season. Their first conference opponent will be Rockhurst whose current record sits at 5-4 overall. The Hawks beat the Griffons in both matchups last year during our inaugural season.
