Despite the past few seasons not going quite how Lehigh wanted, the Mountain Hawks have at least been able to end the season on a high note with a win over Lafayette.
This year, that wasn't the case.
Two touchdowns first-quarter touchdowns scored 57 seconds apart gave the Leopards (4-7, 3-3) all they needed Saturday afternoon at Fisher Stadium in Easton as they defeated Lehigh 14-11 in the 158th edition of The Rivalry.
Lafayette began the scoring on a 71-yard touchdown run by Jamar Curtis and quickly made it 14-0 when Billy Shaeffer picked off a Dante Perri pass and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown on Lehigh's next possession. Lehigh (2-4, 2-9) kept the Leopards off the scoreboard the rest of the game, but the Mountain Hawks' rally came up short.
