It didn't matter that Lehigh had two defenders on BU men's lacrosse captain Timmy Ley. He was going to find a way to score.
So, with the score knotted up, 8-8, Ley received the ball from Matt Hilburn, moved to his right and then fired behind his back to the left. The ball went straight in and BU led 9-8 with five seconds to play in the game. The Terriers won by that score, giving No. 15 BU its first-ever Patriot League regular-season title.

So fitting that our two captains connected to give us our first-ever Patriot League regular-season title. They've been outstanding leaders all year. pic.twitter.com/BZrrqHpDqy— BU Men's Lacrosse (@TerrierMLAX) April 23, 2022
