(Ann Arbor, MI) In just their second-ever contest, Concordia men's lacrosse posted their first victory with a win over Cleary University in Cardinal Stadium on Saturday. Leading the 21-7 attack for the Cardinals was Oliver Niedzwiecki (FR/Toledo, OH) who racked up 12 goals on 30 shots.
Niedzwiecki opened scoring at 12:36 in the first with an unassisted goal and turned around moments later to score another off a Conner Ludeman (FR/Whitehouse, OH) assist. Joseph Rosales (FR/Sterling Heights, MI) wrapped an impressive minute of play with a third Concordia goal at 12:05 as the team settled into control of the game. 18 of Niedzwiecki's 30 shots were on goal and also added two assists for the cause.
Also putting together an impressive game was Brendan Beerer (FR/Royal Oak, MI) who found the net four times and piled on another six assists. The freshman picked up 17 ground balls and was also a large factor in the team's 28-4 edge over the Cougars in faceoffs. Showcasing it all at the 6:30 mark of the fourth quarter, Beerer made quick work of the faceoff, picked up the ball, and promptly ran down to score before Cleary could set their defense.
The Cardinals defense stalled Cleary throughout allowing just a single goal in each of the first three frames. The Cougars scored consecutive goals just once coming midway through the fourth—both by Caleb McCurtis. Concordia allowed just 11 shots on goal with Reggie Thompson (FR/Chicago, IL) coming through with four saves in front of the cage.
Conner Ludeman scored four goals and added two assists in the scoring attack. Rosales had a pair of assists and 11 ground balls in addition to his goal early in the first.
Head Coach Nicholas Zoroya was excited for the milestone win, but also has his eye on long-term goals. "The team spent the last two weeks working incredibly hard to get ready for this game. We accomplished most of the things we wanted, and we're happy about that, but we know we still have a way to go."
The Cardinals go on the road this Wednesday to take on University of Michigan-Dearborn in conference play. The tilt will be played indoors at Detroit Country Day with opening faceoff at 9:00 p.m.
