|The Carthage College men's lacrosse team (10-5, 5-4 Midwest Men's Lacrosse Conference) closed out its home and conference schedule on Wednesday, April 25 with a 22-3 thumping of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (0-9, 0-8 MMLC) at Art Keller Field in Kenosha, Wis. The Red Men led, 8-0, after the first period, 14-1 at halftime and 18-1 after three periods.|
Chris Kochajkiewicz (Sr., Roselle, Ill./Hoffman Estates-Conant) led Carthage with five goals. Seth Molek (Jr., Oak Park, Ill./Oak Park-River Forest) scored three goals with four assists, Keegan Bowman (Sr., New Westminster, British Columbia/New Westminster Secondary) three goals with three assists, and Ales Rearick (Sr., Glen Ellyn, Ill./Glenbard West) added two goals with one assist. The Red Men end their regular-season schedule on Saturday, April 28 by traveling to Rock Island, Ill., to play non-conference opponent Augustana College (Ill., 8-5) in a 1 p.m. game at Thorson-Lucken Field.
Carthage can claim the fourth seed in the conference tournament if Trine University defeats Fontbonne University on Sunday, April 29. A Trine victory would leave Carthage, Trine and Concordia University (Wis.) in a three-way tie for fourth place, but the Red Men would gain the playoff berth based on goal differential in conference games.
