GREENSBURG, Pa. (Apr. 21, 2012) - On Saturday afternoon, the Mercy College men's lacrosse team saw its record slip to 5-5 overall and 4-4 in the East Coast Conference after a 17-9 defeat to Seton Hill University. The Griffins improved to 8-4 on the year and 5-3 in the league.
Seton Hill held the scoreboard advantage throughout all four quarters. Mercy found the back of the goal from time to time, but it was a constant uphill struggle trying to make a comeback that ultimately never occured.

Fleming (Middletown, N.Y.) had one tally and one assist each. Senior attackman Sal Spinelli (East Islip, N.Y.), junior midfielder John Fitzpatrick (Yorktown, N.Y.), sophomore midfielder Patrick Hodapp (Oak Ridge, N.J.) and junior midfielder Ryan Elfeld (Long Beach, N.Y.) also scored one goal apiece.
