Lehigh Vs. Maryland, 2012 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament: Mountain Hawks Give Up Last Second Goal, Lose 10-9

The Lehigh Mountain Hawks entered the fourth quarter of Sunday night's first round game against the Maryland Terrapins with an 8-6 lead. That lead wilted to a Maryland offense that had scored 45 goals over its previous three games. The Terrapins won, 10-9, to advance to the second round of the 2012 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament where they will face the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays.

Joe Cummings took control of the ball with under a minute remaining, and ran the clock down to 30 seconds before beginning his run behind Lehigh's net. He was finally able to beat his defender around the left hand side of the net, shook another defender and scored the game winner on a wraparound with just six seconds to play.

Despite Cummings' heroics, Drew Snider was arguably the player of the game with three goals scored on seven shots. Kyle Stiefel led the Seawolves with three tallies.

2012 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament, Lehigh Vs. Maryland: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Lehigh Mountain Hawks will get the opportunity to host the first NCAA Men's Lacrosse Tournament game in school history, as they will host the Maryland Terrapins Sunday night.

Lehigh comes into the tournament as the No. 7 seed, and will be the first Patriot League team to host a first-round game since Navy in 2005.

The Mountain Hawks offense comes into the game very hot, scoring 45 goals in their last three games. A big reason for the spike has been thanks to Dante Fantoni, who has 14 points over that stretch.

Maryland is led by senior attackman Joe Cummings who has 27 goals and 14 assits on the season. The Mountain Hawks will need to contain him if they want to advance to the quarterfinals.
