Photos/Recap: #15 Princeton Ties It at 0:03, Tops Lehigh in OT

However, Princeton scored three of the next four goals to eventually take a 7-6 lead early in the fourth quarter. A Corbett extra man goal evened the score at seven, then after Schreiber gave the Tigers an 8-7 lead, Taylor tied the score exactly a minute later, setting up Kaunas' go-ahead goal and the dramatic end of regulation and back-and-forth overtime.

"Except for the goal at the end of regulation, Matt had a great day," said Cassese. "He was standing on his head. We needed our goaltender to stand tall, and he did for the majority of the day. We needed someone on offense to step up. They were playing tough hard-nose defense on us and weren't really rotating to us. I thought Dan Taylor did a nice job forcing the issue today. I thought our guys played hard on the offensive end. We had opportunities to win the game, but didn't get the job done."

Princeton held a 52-31 edge in final shots while the Mountain Hawks had a 34-27 advantage in groundballs. Poillon's 13 saves came across Sanschagrin who finished with 10.

The Mountain Hawks return to action Saturday when they face Georgetown in the Relentless Cup at Ridley High School in Folsom, Pa. The Relentless Cup is a special fundraising lacrosse event uniting communities in support of the HEADstrong Foundation by combining interstate youth games, high school games and will be highlighted by Lehigh taking on Georgetown under the lights at 7:00 p.m. The Relentless Cup was introduced in 2012 as a new spring fundraising event to support the HEADstrong Foundation's fight against blood cancers.

"There were many positives tonight, but we're going to leave with a sour taste in our mouth," said Cassese. "We'll get back on the horse, lick our wounds a little bit and get ourselves rested and ready to go for the Hoyas on Saturday night."
