COACH DALEY POSTGAME COMMENTS
"Monmouth really showed up to play today. I thought they were exceptional and had a number of players step up for them and which was the difference maker in their game. We also got away from playing our style, and that hurt our performance on the defensive end. Overall I think the biggest thing we can do is to utilize this game as a learning moment and try and make Canisius lacrosse better."
