HOW IT HAPPENED
- Concordia Wisconsin scored three goals in the first, third and fourth quarters to overwhelm Marian during a rare night game. They controlled the faceoff circle, winning 11-of-14 attempts, and outshot the Sabres 46-25 and held a 40-22 lead in ground balls.
- While the score was in favor of the Falcons, they didn't play the cleanest lacrosse with nine penalties resulting in eight minutes and 30 seconds. On the other side of the field, the Sabres were whistled for five infractions for five total minutes. Neither team was able to capitalize, as each score just one man-up goal.

- Junior Aidan Connolly (Grayslake, Ill.) led all scorers with four goals, while junior Stephen Gregory (Louisville, Ky.) had two goals. Four Falcons ended with a marker.
- Defensively, junior Garrett Wohlford (Rochester, Minn.) had 10 saves and a career-high-tying eight ground balls during a complete game winning effort.
