Lehigh Mountain Hawks (2-9)


Fast start propels Lafayette to 14-11 victory over Lehigh

EASTON, Pa. (AP) Freshman Jamar Curtis ran 71 yards for a first-quarter touchdown, Billy Shaeffer returned an interception 50 yards for a score 57 seconds later and that was enough for Lafayette to beat Lehigh 14-11 on Saturday.

Curtis' long scoring run gave Lafayette (3-8, 3-3 Patriot League) a 7-0 lead with 7:59 left in the opening quarter. Shaeffer picked off a pass from Dante Perri less than a minute later and the Leopards' defense made the two quick scores stand up.

Dylan Van Dusen got Lehigh (2-9, 2-4) on the scoreboard in the second quarter with a 27-yard field goal.
