The St. Bonaventure men's lacrosse team makes history on Saturday evening when it hosts Detroit Mercy in the first game under the lights at the Marra Athletics Complex. The Bonnies, playing in their fourth game as a program, are playing their second contest as members of the MAAC and play host to a Titans squad that was picked second in the MAAC preseason poll.
ABOUT DETROIT MERCY: The Titans are 3-2 overall on the season and started off with an impressive win, 9-8, vs. Jacksonville in their season-opener against a Jacksonville squad that was receiving votes in the national polls prior to the start of the season. After a 19-6 setback at No. 10/9 Notre Dame, Detroit Mercy defeated RV Marquette (15-12) and Bellarmine (15-14) on the road before dropping a road contest at Air Force (19-9) this past Wednesday. Like the Bonnies, the Titans have been road warriors, yet to play on home turf. Picked second in the preseason MAAC Coaches Poll after finishing 9-7 overall and 5-1 in conference, senior Matthew Vangalen and juniors Alex Akins and Alex Jarzembowski all were preseason all-conference picks. Thus far in 2019, Seth Mendell leads the team in goals (12) while Vangalen paces the Titans with 23 points. In the faceoff X, expect to see Jarzembowski as he has won 84 of 139 faceoffs, taking all but three of the team's faceoffs so far. In the cage, Logan Shamblin has played every second with a .419 save percentage and 52 saves.
