Bonnies Struggle Offensively, Fall to Canisius, 18-3

BUFFALO, N.Y. St. Bonaventure (5-3) fell behind Canisius (6-3) early and never recovered at the Golden Griffins ran away with a 18-3 victory. The Bonnies were looking to improve upon what is already the fourth best start in program history.

Turnovers and missed opportunities plagued the Brown and White in the first half as Canisius built a 5-0 lead less than 20 minutes into the game. Emerging star player, Jenna Schlagenhauf was unable to find a rhythm as the Golden Griffs had her gloved most of the day.

Trailing 9-0 late in the first half, Schlagenhauf, the Atlantic 10 leader in goals per game, finally found the back of the net to provide the lone tally of the first half for St. Bonaventure. Canisius took that 9-1 advantage into the locker room.

It was more of the same in the second half as Canisius ran away with this one. The Golden Griffs out-shot the Bonnies 36-15 by the end of the game. The Bonnies only managed two other goals in the second half. The first tally would be put up by Kellyn Savage, assisted by Schlagenhauf. Then with less than a minute to play, Schlagenhauf scored her second of the game.

Head coach Ryan Lynn served a one-game suspension for receiving a red-card and ejection in the Bonnies' 14-9 victory over Iona on Saturday (Mar. 23). Assistant coaches Kendyl Clarkson and Christine Hanley assumed the interim coaching duties for the afternoon.

The Bonnies will open up conference play on Friday (Mar. 29) when they travel to Alfred University in Alfred, N.Y. to host Duquesne. Face off is currently set for 2:30 p.m.
