Washington, D.C. - Lehigh running back Matt McGowan ran for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter as the Mountain Hawks opened up a 31-0 lead at halftime, en route to a 45-0 win over Georgetown in front of 9,084 fans at Goodman Stadium Saturday afternoon. Georgetown falls to 1-7 overall this season and 1-4 in the Patriot League, while Lehigh improves to 4-4 overall and 1-2 in conference play.

The Mountain Hawks took advantage of a pair of Hoya turnovers in the first half, scoring touchdowns following a fumble and an interception. Georgetown took possession first and fumbled on third down near midfield, handing the ball to Lehigh. McGowan capped an 11-play, 52-yard drive with a seven-yard run, giving the Mountain Hawks a 7-0 lead.

McGowan capped a seven-play, 44-yard drive that ate up 3:39 with a two-yard scamper, giving the hosts a 14-0 lead with 2:13 to play in the quarter. The Hoyas turned the ball over with an interception on the next possession and Lehigh quarterback Chris Bokosky threw a 24-yard strike to Joe Sutherland, giving the Mountain Hawks a 21-0 lead.

Lehigh added 10 more points in the second quarter - a one-yard run from Adam Watson to cap a 13-play, 74-yard drive and then a 27-yard Jason Leo field goal with 37 seconds left before halftime - and opened a 31-0 lead at the half.

It is the second time this season the Hoyas have been shut out and the first time since 1985 that a Georgetown team has been held scoreless in two games.

Georgetown plays the third of three-straight road games next weekend, playing a non-league game at Marist. Kickoff at Leonidoff Field is slated for 1 p.m.
