Sherman, Kurfis help Lehigh beat Colgate 31-14

Associated Press

HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Lee Kurfis caught eight passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns as Lehigh beat Colgate 31-14 on Saturday.

Demetrius Russell's 2-yard scoring run gave Colgate (4-7, 3-2 Patriot League) a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter but Lehigh responded with 24 unanswered points to take control of the game.

Colgate, which came into the game ranked 31st in the FCS in third down conversions (43.7 percent), converted just 5 of 15 in the game. The Raiders also committed three turnovers, including Tim Newton's 2-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown to open the scoring for Lehigh (8-2, 3-1) late in the first quarter.

Keith Sherman rushed for a career-high 184 yards and one touchdown just one week after recording a personal best 166 yards and three scores in Lehigh's 34-20 win over Holy Cross.

A win over Lafayette next Saturday will clinch the Patriot League title for the Mountain Hawks.
