Mountain Hawks Don’t Win With Style Points, But Still Win, 24-10

Mountain Hawks Don’t Win With Style Points, But Still Win, 24-10

Brazilian soccer fans are one hard to please bunch.

It’s not enough for the soccer nation that brought us Pele, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho to simply win their soccer games against the rest of the world: to the high-maintenance fans of the seleção, every game involving the Brazilian nation team needs to had flair and panache: style points.  They can still win, but if they win boring, the fans become restless.

Similarly, Lehigh fans looked to the Mountain Hawks to go up to the upper tip of Manhattan and heap on a stylish win filled with scoring, crispness, and focus.  For some Lehigh fans, Saturday’s game wasn’t supposed to be about the win, it was about the style of the win.

If they were looking to win on style, they didn’t get that.

But more importantly, the Brown and White did get the win, notching a 24-10 victory, inching closer to their goal of a Patriot League title and the all-important autobid.

It wasn’t crisp, and it wasn’t pretty, but it was enough to allow Lehigh to cross the George Washington Bridge with a 5-1 record.

2013 Mountain Hawk Season Preview: The Defense And Special Teams

2013 Mountain Hawk Season Preview: The Defense And Special Teams

Last season, Lehigh’s defense was expected to help carry an offense a little as a new offense learns the ropes.

This time around, though, it’s a completely different situation.

Eight starters depart last year’s starting squad, including key members of both the defensive line and defensive backfield rotation.  Oh yeah, and LB Billy Boyko, an undrafted free agent signee by the Raiders in the offseason, graduates as well.

It’s not like the cupboard is bare by any means.  But, man, eight starters?

While the expectation is that Lehigh’s offense will proceed just fine, the defense just has so many departing seniors that it’s worth asking the question: what’s the expectation for 2013?

Lehigh Spring Football – The Defense and Special Teams

Lehigh Spring Football – The Defense and Special Teams

Last season, there was little drama on the defensive side of the ball going into the spring season.

With all-Patriot League names like DT Sajjad Chagani, DE Tom Bianchi, LB Billy Boyko and CB Bryan Andrews on the roster, you knew that the squad was more in a mode to “tweak” rather than to “retool”.

This season sees not only these three position leaders graduate, but plenty more, making the defense much less experiences, and a much larger area of competition, than last season.

“The defense needs to get better,” head coach Andy Coen said in this week’s release. “They didn’t perform very well in our last scrimmage and our coaches have challenged them. We haven’t had a lot of live tackling because we’re in a tailback situation. Last week we got more into it, we scrimmaged, and we didn’t tackle very well. We have to improve upon that.”
