BETHLEHEM, Pa.
- Junior Ryan Schwartz (Corning, N.Y./Corning East/Onondaga CC) scored a career-high four goals for the Hawks, but Monmouth University dropped a 13-7 decision at Lehigh University in men's lacrosse action on Wednesday night at the Ulrich Complex. In its first season of competition, Monmouth falls to 0-8, while the Mountain Hawks, who are receiving votes in this week's national polls, improve to 7-3.

Lehigh opened the scoring with a pair of goals, before the Hawks knotted the game at 2-2 behind freshman Steve Murawski's (Marlton, N.J./Cherokee) first career score at 10:34 and Schwartz's first career score off a feed from freshman Chris Daly (Wynnewood, Pa./Lower Merion) at 8:46. The Mountain Hawks reclaimed a two-goal advantage 1:44 later to lead 4-2 at the end of the first, before freshman Kevin Murphy (Lafayette Hill, Pa./Penn Charter) found Schwartz 39 seconds into the second, to pull the Hawks within 4-3.

Trailing 6-3, junior co-captain Zach Johannes (Sparta, N.J./Pope John XXIII/Franklin & Marshall) got the Hawks on the board off a feed from freshman Eric Berger (Ardsley, Pa./Penn Charter) to get MU within 6-4, and Schwartz's third tally off Bloodgood's pass, had Monmouth within 7-5 with 18 seconds left in the half.

Lehigh, which outshot Monmouth 29-9 in the second half, outscored the Hawks 3-1 in both the third and fourth quarters.

In the third, Bloodgood found Schwartz once again to make the score 9-6, while Bloodgood notched his team-leading ninth goal of the season with 6:22 left in the game, off a feed from Berger, which made the score 12-7.

Schwartz became the fourth Hawk to score four goals in a single game this season, joining Bloodgood (twice) and Daly.

Lehigh outshot Monmouth 43-22, as freshman Nick Hreshko (Warrington, Pa./La Salle College H.S.) made two saves for the Hawks. Junior Garrett Conaway (Marriottsville, Md./Liberty/Essex-Howard CC) tied a season-high with 11 stops in the second half for the Blue & White.

Monmouth returns to action on Tuesday, April 1, when the Hawks host Lafayette at Monmouth Stadium at 3:00 p.m.
