The Game Story:
ONEONTA, NY - Ross Pino (Webster/Rochester, NY) became Hartwick College's all-time leading scorer in men's lacrosse on Saturday, but it was not enough as Elmira College took a 17-13 Empire 8 Conference win at All-Weather Field.

Elmira (5-9) led 8-2 after a quarter and 10-4 at halftime. The 14th-ranked Hawks (9-4, 3-3 Empire 8) did battle back with six unanswered goals in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 14-11 with 9:36 remaining. The Soaring Eagles, though, got three straight goals from Alexander Karoly (Avon Old Farms/Brewster, NY) to put the game away. The Hawks will likely get an Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) bid.

Karoly finished with six goals to lead Elmira. Andrew Slotnick (Williston-Northampton/Granby, MA) added four goals for the winners. Pino finished with three goals and two assists and became the all-time leading scorer at Hartwick with 126 goals and 99 assists for 225 points. He passed Ian Ritcey, who had 222 points from 1992 to 1995. Pino also ranks third in both career goals and assists for the Hawks. He has 34 goals and 39 assists this season to lead the E8.
