Final Stats

Brent Noseworthy scored a game-high five points to lead Michigan over Siena Lacrosse 13-7 in Ann Arbor. Attackmen Keenan Cook and Chris Robertson tallied three points apiece for the Saints, which held a 49-33 advantage in shots and a 32-22 margin in groundballs.

Avery Myers added four points on a pair of goals and assists, while Matt Trowbridge made 16 saves in goal for Michigan (3-2).

Cook scored a pair of man-up tallies for Siena (2-1), which converted three of five extra-man opportunities. Robertson accounted for the Saints’ other man-up score to extend the nation’s sixth longest active goal scoring streak to 17 straight.

Siena jumped on Michigan early, outshooting the Wolverines 16-3 in the opening quarter, while claiming a 3-2 lead. But Michigan responded with five unanswered goals bridging the first and second quarters to take the lead for good at 6-3 with 8:08 remaining in the half. The Wolverines led 6-4 at the break.

Each team added a goal in the third quarter to make the score 7-5, but Decker Curran opened the final stanza with back-to-back scores – including the game-winner – to spur a decisive four-goal Michigan run.

Siena returns to action next Saturday for another road matchup against a power conference foe when the Saints travel to St. John’s for a 1 p.m. faceoff.
