Lehigh Lacrosse

 The Lehigh Men's lacrosse team faces a big challenge this afternoon...facing number 1 ranked Loyola in the Patriot League championship this afternoon.
 I will be watching...alternating between this game and the Flyer's game 5 against the hated Rangers.
 As I was checking the Lehigh website I was impressed with two of the photos. One showed the team breakfast and then the boys loading their gear on the bus for the hop over to the stadium. The Lehigh coach requires his team to wear jacket and tie when representing the school on the road. It is refreshing to see young men dressed like young gentlemen.
BALTIMORE - Coming off a dramatic semifinal victory over #14/15 Army, the #18 nationally-ranked and third-seeded Lehigh men's lacrosse team will vie for its third straight Patriot League Championship when it faces the top-seeded, host and #1 nationally-ranked Loyola Greyhounds on Sunday at 1 p.m. on CBS Sports Network. Sophomore Reid Weber scored the game-winning goal with just 3.7 seconds left in regulation Friday to send the Mountain Hawks to their third straight title game.

Friday marked Lehigh's sixth straight win in the Patriot League Tournament (all over the past three seasons). Sunday's matchup features the two teams tied for the nation lead in victories; the Mountain Hawks are 13-4 while the Greyhounds are 13-1. Loyola has won 13 straight ever since a season-opening loss at Virginia. Both Lehigh and Loyola are vying for a third straight NCAA Tournament appearance as Sunday's winner will receive the league's automatic berth into the big dance.
