MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The #4 seed Morrisville State College men’s lacrosse team concluded the 2013 season Wednesday afternoon, falling 11-5 to top seed Keuka College in the semi-final round of the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Championship Tournament, held in Keuka.
Morrisville State concludes the season with a 4-9 overall record, and finish fourth in the
conference with a 4-3 record.
Brendan Shannon (Stanhope, N.J.) led the Mustang efforts with two scores, while John
Sherlock (Tully, N.Y.) added one and assisted two others. Andrew Donoghue (Rochester, N.Y.) and Jeremy Beresovoy (Jamesville, N.Y.) rounded out Morrisville State scoring with one each.
Chris Fiore (Staten Island, N.Y.) made 16 stops in the efforts between the pipes, recording the loss.
Donoghue was the first to find the back of the net, posting the first tally of the day
minutes into the opening quarter off an assist from Sherlock, before Keuka responded with three scores to claim the 3-1 lead after one.
In the second, Shannon posted an unassisted man-up goal to make it a 3-2 game at
the 10:31 mark, but again Keuka rallied with three straight scores to take a 6-2 lead into the half.
Keuka’s leading scorer Connor Lattimer posted the lone tally in the third quarter and
added two additional scores early in the final stanza, but Morrisville State gained momentum and posted three straight, including two on man-up opportunities, to make it a 9-5 game with just over three minutes to go.
Lattimer added his fourth tally of the day with 1:55 to go and as time wound down, put
