Saints Get Revenge, Drill Defending MAAC Champ Canisius
Saturday's performance may not have totally erased the memory of last season's MAAC Championship Game, but it certainly took some of the sting away. Ten Saints scored and seven posted multi-point games as Siena annihilated defending MAAC Champion Canisius 16-6 in Buffalo.
- The calendar may not yet have turned to April, but Siena Lacrosse will play its final regular season home game of the year when the Saints host Canisius on Senior Day at 3 p.m. The game will be televised throughout New York on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel.
Chris Watson and Andrew Santillo have the call on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel. Fans can watch the game in the Capital Region and Syracuse markets on Time Warner Cable Channel 323. The game can also be watched in Buffalo on Channel 87, the Hudson Valley on Channel 461 and in New York City on Channel 199.
Fans outside the viewing area can also watch the television simulcast of the game live online exclusively at SienaAllAccess.com by clicking the watch link at the top of the release. Individual game passports cost just $7.95.
In addition to watching the game online at SienaAllAccess.com, fans can catch all the same great video content through their iOS devices (such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), in addition to any devices that support Adobe Flash 10.1 or greater (primarily Android devices).
Siena (5-3, 2-0) concludes its season long four-game homestand today marking the program's only home games this season. The Saints bookend the homestand with a pair of five-game road trips to both begin and end the regular season.
Today also marks the Saints' Senior Day. Siena has seven true seniors on its roster along with four, five-year players and two red-shirt juniors who are both in their fourth seasons with the program. Siena's four-year players have to date won 37 games including the program's second and most recent MAAC Championship as freshmen in 2011 and the MAAC Regular Season Championship as sophomores in 2012.
Siena has won 36 of its past 39 MAAC Regular Season games overall including 10 in a row at home. Today they face a Canisius (4-4, 1-1) team in a rematch of the 2012 MAAC Championship won by the Golden Griffins.
Picked to finish tied for fourth in the MAAC Preseason Coaches' Poll, Canisius is coming off its biggest win in program history. The Golden Griffins posted their first-ever win over a nationally ranked opponent Tuesday just minutes away from Loudonville, upsetting 13th ranked UAlbany 14-10.
Canisius leads the all-time series with the Saints 18-7. However, Siena has won five of the past six meetings including a dominant 16-6 victory in Buffalo last April.
