BUFFALO, N.Y. – Looking to bounce back from its first loss of the season, the Marist men's lacrosse (5-1, 1-0 MAAC) travel to Canisius, the defending Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) champions, for a 7 p.m. game on Saturday.

LAST TIME OUT: Marist finished on the short end for the first time this season, dropping a 19-11 decision at 12th-ranked Duke Monday night. It was the Red Foxes first loss in six games this spring.

Connor Rice (Penfield, N.Y.) had five points for the second time in three days, finishing with a goal and four assists. Mike Begley (Brookeville, Md.) found the back of the net four times and Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.), who just hours before the game was named the MAAC Offensive Player of the Week, scored twice. Jim Marks (Camillus, N.Y.) and Gannon Osborn (Canandaigua, N.Y.) each had a goal and an assist. Dave Scarcello (Buffalo, N.Y.) played the entire game in net and made 11 saves.

RECENT HISTORY VERSUS CANISIUS: The Red Foxes are 2-3 in their past five meetings versus the Golden Griffins, including back-to-back 7-5 defeats each of the past two seasons.

Last season, on an afternoon where three positions in next weekend's MAAC Tournament were up for grabs, the fans at Tenney Stadium were treated to a defensive battle between Marist and Canisius. The 7-5 outcome for Canisius gave the Golden Griffins the third seed and the Red Foxes the fourth seed. Junior Jack Doherty (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and freshman Drew Nesmith (Montclair, N.J.) led Marist's offense with two points each.

SCOUTING CANISIUS: The Golden Griffins enter Saturday’s game with a 1-5 record, with their one win coming in their MAAC opener last Saturday, 10-7, at VMI. Last year, Canisius won its final regular season game at Marist to get into the MAAC Tournament before winning two games as the fourth seed to win the MAAC Championship.

This season, the Griffs are led by the 2012 MAAC Rookie of the Year Tim Edwards who has eight goals and 13 assists for a team-high 21 points. Vince Gravino is the only player in double digits in scoring with 12 goals to go along with six assists. Mike Moran has won 56.7% (55-97) of his face-offs and has collected a team-high 25 ground balls. As a team, Canisius is averaging just eight goals per game while giving up over 11 goals per game.  

HONORING EDDIE COOMBS: As they did last season, for the entirety of this season, the Red Foxes are honoring the memory of Eddie Coombs. Each game, a member of the team will wear his #34 jersey. The player, who will be chosen by the coaches prior to each game, must earn the honor in practice and in the previous game.
