Game Photos: Princeton Escapes Lehigh In 2OT Stunner

This one was lost, and Tom Schreiber was going to be frustrated. Down one, seconds ticking away, and Schreiber went low on Matt Poillon to try to tie it, only to have Lehigh’s goalie make yet another great save.

That was with 28 seconds to go. As it turned out, this one was far from over, and when it finally ended, in the second overtime, Schreiber was being mobbed by his teammates.

Princeton came up with a turnover, had another shot blocked, came up with a ground ball and got it to Kip Orban, who ripped one past Poillon with 2.7 seconds left to tie it. Then, just over a minute into the second overtime, Schreiber nailed the game-winner – his fourth of the night – to give Princeton a frantic 10-9 victory over Lehigh.

The win improved Princeton to 6-4 overall, while Lehigh fell to 9-4. The Mountain Hawks had won three straight.
