Mercyhurst Game Notes

Mercyhurst (1-7, 1-7 GLIAC) will look for its second straight win when GLIAC foe Hillsdale (3-6, 2-6 GLIAC) visits Tullio Field on Saturday, October 29 at 1:30.

Last week, the Lakers got three touchdowns from Calvin Kelly - tying a school record - including one in a fourth quarter comeback that lifted Mercyhurst to its first win of the year. Jim Kokrak made a Laker season-high 19 tackles and was named the GLIAC Defensive Player of the Week.

Hillsdale, meanwhile, defeated non-conference Tiffin by a score of 24-7. The Chargers snapped a four-game losing streak with the win.

Hillsdale leads the all-time series 4-3, winning three straight games between the two schools. Last year, Phil Martin scored on a five-yard run with 3:22 left to lift the Chargers past Mercyhurst. He also scored on a 47-yard scamper and had 135 yards on the ground. Justin Adams led the Lakers with 134 yards and matched Martin with two scores. The running backs dominated the game. Both teams racked up over 200 yards on the ground, but neither offense passed for 100. Ben Bluemle had 17 tackles and an interception. Mercyhurst's last win came on October 27, 2001 with a 44-31 win at Tullio Field. Games between the teams tend to be high scoring. The winner has run up at least 35 in five of the seven meetings.
