“We didn’t execute as well as we wanted coming out of the half,” he said. “In the past we may have crumbled a little bit, but we kept fighting. We kept working through the adversity.”
You might think these were the words of someone from Lehigh this weekend, perhaps Mountain Hawk head coach Andy Coen or freshman QB Brad Mayes.
The words were not theirs, however. They were the words of Holy Cross junior QB Pete Pujals after their thrilling 34-33 win over Bryant.
Holy Cross comes into this weekend’s game at Lehigh with an identical record as the Mountain Hawks, 4-4. Like Lehigh, they are playing to finish the season strong and force their way into a playoff conversation by winning their last three games to finish at 7-4.
Listing to Holy Cross’ post-game press conference from last week, you can pluck many more words from Pujals and head coach Tom Gilmore that could have been taken from Lehigh’s. “Believing”. “Character.” “Finding a way to win.”
The Crusaders will definitely be another test as to how far Lehigh has come this season.
