Mercy College (4-2) could not hold an early lead, and lost to visiting Assumption (Mass.) College today, 12-9, in a game played in Purchase, N.Y.

Early in the game, both teams played well. Mercy held a 3-2 lead on back-to-back goals from freshmen Kelsey Bub (Cortlandt Manor, N.Y./Walter Panas) and Kristen Znaniecki (Port Jefferson Station, N.Y./Comsewogue). The Greyhounds (2-1) then went running, scoring the final five goals of the first half to take a 7-3 lead at the break.
