Army holds off Lehigh to win 7-5

  Glesener netted a goal and an assist in the 7-5 victory against Lehigh.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- No. 18 Army had a 6-3 lead at the end of three quarters and the Black Knights held off a late charge from Lehigh thanks to great defense down the stretch to earn a 7-5 win in Patriot League action on Saturday at Ulrich Sports Complex.

Army (6-3, 2-2 PL) got two goals apiece from Cole Johnson and Jimbo Moore, while John Glesener and Connor Cook tallied two points as each had a goal and an assist. Sam Somers finished with eight saves and had two huge stops in the final minutes to preserve the win. Both stops came during a man-up situation. Dan Grabher had his best performance of the season so far with 11 wins at the faceoff "x" in 16 chances.

Lehigh (2-7, 1-3 PL) was led by Kurtis Kaunas with two goals. Dan Taylor, who leads the league in points per game, was held to one goal by the Army defense. Adam Sawicki got the start in net and made eight saves with four coming in each half.

"Lehigh has won a couple of championships over the last few years. This is a championship type program and coach and it took everything we had," head coach Joe Alberici said. "Just really proud of our effort and it was a great win on the road."
