Men’s lacrosse falls to Denver in regular season finale

Marquette men’s lacrosse entered its regular season finale against No. 18 Denver Friday night with BIG EAST Tournament implications on the line all around the conference.

The Golden Eagles suffered a 16-8 loss to the Pioneers at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium, locking up the No. 4 seed in next week’s conference tournament.

Redshirt sophomore attacker Jake Stegman opened the scoring for Marquette just two minutes into the contest, but Denver would respond with five-straight goals to end the first quarter leading 5-1.

The Pioneers wouldn’t stop the scoring there, however, as they would extend their lead to 7-1 before redshirt sophomore attacker Devon Cowan stopped the home sides’ 7-0 scoring run and the Golden Eagles’ 17-minute goalless streak at the time.
