BETHLEHAM, PA. It didn't take long for New Hampshire to get on the scoreboard in this matchup between two top-25 FCS teams.

The Wildcats sliced through the Mountain Hawk defense to go 75 yards in nine plays, with Kevin Decker scoring on a third-down, two-yard bootleg to make it 7-0 with 12:17 remaining in the first quarter.

    Chris Lum bought time in the pocket and finally found Keith Sherman, who made a great leaping catch as he was losing his balance to pull the Mountain Hawks to 38-33. But Lehigh didn't go for two and Jake Peery missed his second PAT of the day with 11 minutes left.

    Sean Farrell got a first down on fourth and an inch at the UNH 18 after being initially stopped. Lehigh is at the 14 with less than six minutes left.

    Brian McNally stripped Lum of the ball on second down, but Lehigh recovered at the 11. Heavu\y pressure forced an incomplete pass to make it fourth and four. Lum was harrassed again with pressure on fourth down, but he got the ball off to Jake Drwal, who fought into the end zone for the score. A two-point pass from Lum to Ryan Spanola made it Lehigh 41, UNH 38 with 4:35 remaining. We are ready for a fantastic finish.

    Lum just set a personal best and a school record with his sixth TD pass on the 12-play, 79-yard drive that took almost five minutes. What a classic game.

    Kevin Decker hit Harris for a diving catch to the Lehigh 26 on first down.

    It is fourth and two with 3:28 left at the Lehigh 18. UNH just called its first time out of the half to decide whether to go for the first down, or a field goal.

    UNH's Mike MacArthur hit a field goal from 35 yards out to tie the game at 41-all with 3:23 remaining.

    Lum made a nice throw to Drwal for a first down and UNH freshman safety Tre Williams was called for a hit to the head when both his and Drwal's helmets went flying off. Lehigh has the ball at the UNH 40 with a third and eight at 1:30 left.

    UNH moved to near midfield with 48 seconds left before being called for an illegal pick and offensive pass interference to move the ball back to the 34.

    It is second and 30 from the UNH 29 with 28 seconds left. Overtime anyone?

    It is fourth and very long for UNH with 16 seconds left. The Wildcats will punt.

    My last UNH OT game was in the first round of the 1994 FCS playoffs. Appalachian State won 17-10.

    UNH scored from 25 yards on first down when Joe Orlando went out of bounds and never came back into play, but was credited with a TD catch. Officials incorrectly ruled he was pushed out of bounds.

    It is third and 16 for Lehigh at the 31.

    McNally was offsides to give Lehigh a free play, but the pass was incomplete. Third and 11.

    Fourth and seven from the 22 for Lehigh.

    Under heavy pressure from McNally on fourth down, Lum was intercepted near the end zone to end a bittersweet day for Lehigh in a 48-41 loss.
