The second-seeded Lehigh men's lacrosse team bounced back from a tough start to outscore fourth-seeded and 19th-ranked Army West Point 7-2 over the middle 35 minutes, but the Black Knights responded by scoring six unanswered goals over the final 12:16 to defeat the Mountain Hawks, 11-7 in the Patriot League Championship Game Sunday. Senior Mickey Fitzpatrick helped lead the offensive charge with his fourth-career hat trick. On the other side of the field, classmate Craig Chick had three caused turnovers to finish his career with 160 – a new NCAA all-time record. Junior Conor Gaffney was stellar facing off, winning 18-of-22 with 15 groundballs, winning his final 13 faceoffs of the game. In the process, he broke the Patriot League record for faceoff wins in a season (finishing with 249) while his 69.7 percentage for the season is also a league record.
