BETHLEHEM, Pa - The Georgetown University football team (8-3, 3-2 Patriot League) had momentum, as they opened the second half with a quick touchdown drive, as Max Waizenegger (Fairfax, Va./W.T. Woodson) caught a six yard pass to bring the Hoyas within one score, but No. 6 Lehigh University (9-1, 4-0 Patriot League) scored 14 unanswered points to win 34-12 to clinch the Patriot League Championship on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Stadium in Bethlehem, Pa. The Hoyas finish the 2011 season with its best record since 1999.
Senior defensive end Andrew Schaetzke (Toledo, Ohio/St. John's Jesuit) had two sacks to give him 13 on the season and 30.5 for his career, which ranks him second in Georgetown history and third in Patriot League history. Junior linebacker Robert McCabe (Newtown Square, Pa./Malvern Prep) had 14 tackles to pad his single-season record of 134, in the loss.
The Hoyas forced an early turnover, as junior cornerback Jeremy Moore (New Haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) stripped the ball from Michael Colvin on the third play of the game. Georgetown drove down to the Mountain Hawks five yard line, but stalled and missed the 23 yard field goal attempt to give the ball back to Lehigh.
The Mountan Hawks responded, as Chris Lum drove the Lehigh down the six yard line for Matt Fitz to rush for a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead with 6:06 remaining in the first quarter. Tim Divers put Lehigh on the board shortly after, with 24 yard field goal to extend the lead to, 10-0.
Moore gave GU solid field position on the ensuing drive with a 43 yard kick-off return, and Kempf would take the Blue & Gray inside the 20 yard line to set up a 38 yard Brett Weiss field goal, making the score 10-3.
The Mountain Hawks took advantage of an unnecessary roughness penalty and drove 84 yards, as Colvin scored from a yard out to extend the Lehigh lead to 17-3 with just under 10 minutes remaining in the first half.
Again, Moore put the Hoyas in great position with a 70 yard kick return to the Lehigh 20 yard line, but Georgetown would be held to a 21-yard Brett Weiss field goal to cut the lead to 17-6 with 7:15 remaining in the first half. Tim Divers struck again six minutes later from 24 field goal to take a 20-6 lead into halftime.
In the second half's opening series, Georgetown drove deep into Lehigh territory, as Kempf spread the ball to four different players. On a third and goal situation, Kempf passed into the end zone, as the ball was tipped by Tucker Stafford into the hands of Waizenegger for a six yard touchdown to cut the deficit to 20-12 early in the third quarter.
Georgetown forced a Lehigh punt on the following possession, as momentum seemed to be turning, but Lehigh's Bryan Andrews intercepted a pass and returned it for a 26 yard touchdown to put the Mountain Hawks in front 27-12 with 11:20 remaining in the third quarter.
The Mountain Hawks scored one final time on Lum's five-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter to give LU a 34-12 lead, the eventual final score.
