Mavericks Fall to Griffins 18-7 in ECC Men’s Lacrosse
The Mercy College men’s lacrosse team took a trip to western Pennsylvania and fell to East Coast Conference opponent Seton Hill University 18-7. Mercy now owns a 4-9 overall mark, with a 2-6 conference record.
Seton Hill jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Mercy freshman John Fitpatrick (Yorktown, N.Y./Lakeland) scored an unassisted goal to bring the Mavericks within 2-1. The Griffins then scored six unanswered tallies before Fitzpatrick found the net for the second time in the game to make the score 8-2.
After Seton Hill responded to take the score to 9-2, Michael Munch (West Babylon, N.Y./West Babylon), a long pole, recorded an unassisted goal of his own to make the score 9-3. The Griffins scored three more times to take a 12-3 lead into the intermission.
Mercy surrendered a goal early in the third quarter, but got one back thanks to Mike Marzocca (North Babylon, N.Y./North Babylon) off a Fitzpatrick feed. Later in the third, Fitzpatrick picked up a hat trick off an assist from Frank Henenlotter (Lynbrook, N.Y./Lynbrook). Sean Wallin (Mountain Lakes, N.J./Mountain Lakes) also found the net at the end of the quarter with a pass from Frank Palumbo (North Babylon). Henenlotter completed the Mavericks scoring with an unassisted tally in the fourth.
The men’s lacrosse team returns home on Wednesday, May 5, to face Dominican College as part of a doubleheader with the women’s team. The faceoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. at Purchase College.
