Marshall, Mo. (March 15, 2014)- The No. 25 Missouri Valley College men’s lacrosse team played a neutral-site game Saturday afternoon against No. 21 DePaul University. The Vikings played a close game, but eventually fell to DePaul 11-10.
The Vikings entered their first game against a ranked opponent playing DePaul even through the first quarter, as the game was tied at 3-3.
