Story & Photographs by Diane Fleischman

Another beautiful Saturday afternoon at the Goodman stadium, as fans gathered for the game, The Mountain Hawks versus Holy Cross Crusaders. Within the first three minutes of the game, Lehigh entered Holy Cross territory, and successfully scored a field goal. It became evident that Lehigh wasn’t messing around, as they hit the scoreboard first.

Their defense was much stronger than their last home game, and by halftime, they were trailing 7-3.  But things turned again in the third quarter, their defense rejuvenated after picking up an interception followed by a touchdown.  Still trailing with a score of 12 to 14.

Things shifted greatly in the last quarter; The Crusaders took an aggressive streak that The Mountain Hawks couldn’t contain. Holy Cross beat Lehigh University 31-12.
