Army vs. Lehigh
April 25, 2014
The Game Story:
BALTIMORE, Md. - Lehigh's Reid Weber netted the game-winning goal with 3.7 seconds remaining as the third-seeded Mountain Hawks upset No. 2 Army, 12-11, in a Patriot League Championship semifinal game at a rainy Ridley Athletic Complex Friday night. Top-seeded Loyola will now host Lehigh for the 2014 title on Sunday at 1 p.m. Army junior attackman John Glesener led all players with five goals - all scored in the first half - to go with one assist. The Camillus, N.Y., native and Tewaaraton Award Top 25 Nominee came out on fire, completing his 14th career hat trick in the first 15 minutes. Sophomore attackman Will Mazzone added two goals and one assist, while Jimbo Moore, Connor Cook, Matt Bowman and Cole Johnson each scored single Army goals. The Mountain Hawks jumped out to a 3-1 lead, but a 7-3 Army run to close the half gave the Black Knights an 8-6 halftime advantage. Lehigh goaltender Matt Poillon made eight second-half saves to keep his team in the contest late. Thanks in large part to three second-half Dan Taylor goals, the Mountain Hawks outscored Army 6-3 over the final 30 minutes to come away with the one-goal victory. A complete recap will be available shortly. The Black Knights close out the regular season next Saturday, May 3, at No. 9/9 Notre Dame. The noon face-off will air live on ESPNU.
