Lawrenceville 62, Mercersburg 47: Mercersburg Academy fell in a Mid-Atlantic Prep League contest to Lawrenceville for its fourth-straight loss.

The Blue Storm fell flat in the second quarter heading into the locker room down by seven. In the second half, Lawrenceville’s defense was too much for Mercersburg to overcome in the second half.

"We just couldn't hit shots when we got stops, and we couldn't get stops when we hit shots,” Mercersburg coach Sean Crocker said. “That's not a great recipe for success.”

Luka Sevaljevic paced Mercersburg (5-11, 0-2 MAPL) with 10 points, followed by Elliot Hicks with 16 points.

“Eli Riley had a good game, but it didn't show on the stat sheet, and he has really been a bright spot for us coming on strong,” Crocker said.
