By now, you should be more than familiar with our series of regularly updating leaderboards for various Marquette Golden Eagles sports accomplishments. Keep checking back to that link in the previous sentence for our charts as the seasons continue to churn through history and MU’s various teams continue to create new memories and accomplishments..
Let’s talk about the men’s lacrosse career goals chart.
As is the case with career points, even two games into the 2020 season, we do not have any active players in the top 10. We’re also not that far from that happening, as Connor McClelland has tacked on five more to rise to 31 goals as a Golden Eagle. Bryan Badolato’s 37 are currently the 10th most in program history, so it seems as if it’s only a matter of time before the senior from Ontario gets there. Same goes for Peter Henkhaus, who has tacked on two more goals to sit at 27 in his career.
We’ll also keep an eye on Andrew Orsini and Ryan Fazio as the season chugs along. They’re at 21 and 14 goals respectively, and that’s within shouting distance of Badolato’s 37. Over the past few seasons, it’s been common for Marquette to have multiple 20 goal scorers, so someone filling that void shouldn’t be too hard.
Of course, the someone in question might be one of the new guys. Devon Cowan already has three goals to start his college career, and Chris Kirschner has four. If the freshmen keep going like this, we’ll get them in the list as the season goes on, but seeing 30 goal scorers has been a rarity, so I’m not counting on it quite yet. Sophomore Holden Patterson has four after hitting the net twice against Bellarmine in MU’s most recent outing, which gets him to 10. Still a bit away from Badolato, but hey, he’s a sophomore, so let’s put him on the list too.
In Season Update! Chris Kirschner is up to 10 goals already, putting him just one behind Holden Patterson. Seems worth of an addition to keep tracking going forward.
Here’s what the chart looks like after the end of the 2021 season.
