HIGHLIGHTS: Gannon Surprises Mercyhurst, Wins CWPA D2 Champs

The Mercyhurst men had won six of the last seven CWPA Division II men’s championships, so it was a surprise outcome on Saturday when the Golden Knights stormed back from a four-goal deficit to beat Mercyhurst and win their first ever CWPA D2 championship.

Gannon, down 6-2 at the half, scored six in the second and held the Lakers to just one to finish the match 8-7. Mercyhurst and Gannon will face each other again on Oct. 24.
