Bellarmine holds Marquette to lowest scoring total since 2013, wins 9-3

Bellarmine 3-31 Marquette's previous lowest scoring output was nine. The Golden Eagles only managed three on Tuesday.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The flashes of brilliance that the Bellarmine lacrosse coaching staff had witnessed from the Knights turned into a full-length feature Tuesday at Owsley B. Frazier Stadium.

Marquette entered with a No. 12 ranking. Three weeks ago, the Golden Eagles romped 14-6 against a Mercer squad that defeated Bellarmine on Saturday.

None of that mattered to the unranked Knights, who put forth a staunch defensive effort, Connor Harryman-led superiority in the faceoff game and five unanswered goals in the last period to reel in a stunning 9-3 victory against the Golden Eagles.

"This is the first game from start to finish where we played team ball. It was nice to see," BU coach Kevin Burns said. "We saw those flashes in the Ohio State game and some others, but we finally saw it for 60 minutes tonight. All the guys played exceptionally well. I can't say enough about them."

Bellarmine's defense held Marquette to its lowest scoring outing of the season. The previous low for the Golden Eagles (8-2) was nine. The three goals marked Marquette's fewest amount of scores since posting three in the 2013 season finale against traditional power Duke.

As for the Knights (3-5), it was their shrewdest performance on defense since a 13-3 victory against St. Andrew's in the final game of the 2006 season. Bellarmine shut out the Golden Eagles in both the second and fourth quarters. Marquette only scored once before halftime and twice in the second half.

Freshman goalkeeper Drew Goethals registered nine saves for Bellarmine. Marquette fired at the net 26 times to the 32 of Bellarmine but rarely connected.
