Lehigh 17, Princeton 14

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Zach Barket and Keith Sherman capped off Lehigh drives with short touchdown runs to help the Mountain Hawks hold off Princeton 17-14 on Saturday and ruin yet another Tigers' season opener.

Lehigh dominated Princeton in the first half. Barket ran for five yards to score the first points of the game and Sherman's 2-yard run with 3:34 in the second quarter gave Lehigh a commanding 17-0 halftime lead.

Princeton, which has lost three straight season openers to Lehigh, rallied in the fourth quarter. The Tigers cut the lead to 17-14 with 4:54 to play on Akil Sharp's second rushing touchdown.

The Mountain Hawks' defense then stiffened, forcing a three-and-out on Princeton's next possession. Lehigh sealed the win, converting on third down-and-11 when quarterback Michael Colvin connected with Dylan Colgate for 27 yards.

Michael Colvin finished 21 of 34 for 276 yards passing for Lehigh (3-0).
