Eagles Fly Past the Mountain Hawks in PL Action

Lehigh had chances to cut further into the deficit, but were unable to pull any closer than three. The teams traded goals in the final 31 seconds to account for the 18-15 final.

"We pressed them, but we didn't capitalize on some caused turnovers that we came up with," said Redfern. "We couldn't put it away then they came back with goals of their own."

American led the final shot count, 29-23 and in groundballs, 21-17. Lehigh was 6 for 7 on free position shots to the Eagles' 3 of 8. Junior MaryLeah DiNisco finished with nine saves for the Mountain Hawks while Kaska Komosinski made six for American.

Sukonik added a team-high five draw controls while junior Kenzie Dambach was also strong on defense, coming up with three groundballs.

"Kenzie anchors our defense back there," said Redfern. "She was really aggressive. She had a couple big plays when we needed them."

Lehigh returns home for four straight to end the regular season, beginning next Saturday against New Hampshire. The Mountain Hawks will then host Penn State on Apr. 11 before returning to Patriot League action on Apr. 14 vs. Holy Cross.
