The St. Bonaventure men's lacrosse team makes history again on Saturday afternoon as it heads to Manhattan for its first-ever MAAC game, taking on the Jaspers outside New York City.
ENTRANCE OF THE MAAC: The Bonnies are making their debut in the MAAC conference Saturday. It will be the first conference game of the season for any MAAC teams and the only MAAC game this weekend. The conference includes Detroit Mercy, Canisius, Manhattan, Siena, Monmouth, Marist, Quinnipiac and St. Bonaventure.
ABOUT MANHATTAN: Manhattan enters the conference matchup 1-2 and have lost two straight to Lafayette and the Virginia Military Institute after winning their season-opening contest over Wagner 11-10. Unlike the Bonnies, who've had the last two weeks off, Manhattan last played this Tuesday when they fell to the Leopards 13-5. Last season, the Jaspers finished 4-10 and 0-6 in conference play. From last year's roster, Manhattan returns top scorer Parker Giarratana who finished with 23 and already has seven this season.
