Battling raindrops under an overcast, spring sky, Lehigh's offense (the White team) won the "official" game, 48-34 over the Lehigh defense (the Brown team), using a modified scoring system.
But the spring practice was defined by the early statement of the defense, with a big interception by junior CB Donavon Harris and a slew of tipped balls by the Mountain Hawks' experienced defensive front.
Eventually, though, the offense would settle down, and junior QB Brad Mayes and his backup, senior QB Matt Timochenko, would start to make hay and put touchdowns on the scoreboard.
Junior WR Cam Richardson, who won the Jim Gum scholarship award before the game, made much of his opportunity working alongside senior WR Gatlin Casey and senior WR Troy Pelletier with the first-string offense. The Northwestern Lehigh product caught 4 balls for 60 yards, and was a frequent target of Mayes and Timochenko.
Tune in later for more postgame reaction and the progression Lehigh has made this spring.
