No. 12 Mountain Hawks Soar by Lafayette to Tie Win Record

Lafayette scored two in the first 1:56 of the fourth quarter, but Stiefel, Johnston and Donovan added late tallies to give Lehigh its first double-digit win since Feb. 25 against Manhattan.

Lehigh held a 45-36 edge in shots, while the Leopards won the groundball battle, 45-36. The combination of Snyder and Buttenbaum won 13 of 25 faceoffs. The Mountain Hawks were 0 for 2 on man-up while Lafayette was 1 for 4. Poillon and Murphy combined for 14 saves across Jake Hyatt, who posted10 for the Leopards.

The Mountain Hawks now look ahead to the Patriot League Tournament next weekend, hosted by Colgate. Lehigh will begin with third-seeded Army at 8:00 p.m. on CBS Sports Network. The championship game is set for Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

"Right now, we're going to do everything we've been doing for the entire year," said Cassese. "Focus on one game at a time; we're hoping for a one-game winning streak. Our focus is the Army Cadets; we know it'll be an absolute battle Friday night. Our game in the regular season went down to the wire and we expect a very similar game - physical and highly competitive."
