FUS men’s LAX loses

STEUBENVILLE – The Franciscan University of Steubenville men’s lacrosse team dropped a 16-4 decision Friday against Southwestern Texas University at Harding Stadium.

“The guys were really solid today in their attitude,” head coach Pete Rosaschi said. “We played a really strong game especially in the first half. We were right in it and just have to cut down on our mistakes because that’s what cost us.”

Joe Francis scored twice and Luke Gilman once for FUS.

“Joe Francis, the sniper, is coming out of nowhere,” Rosaschi said. “We’re really happy to see that.

“Two things hurt us right now, our inexperience and lack of depth. When the other teams make adjustments our lack of experience comes out in our new players. We work well as a team but we can’t hide the inexperience forever.”

Barons goalkeeper Jonah Soucy finished with 22 saves.

“We just have to get a deeper bench and it’s going to take time, it’s just not going to happen in one year,” Rosaschi said. “This was a day St. Francis would be proud of as he said ‘Go build my church’ and we just have to take it one day at a time and work for the glory of God.”

The Barons host Baldwin Wallace University at 4 p.m. on Monday.
