Late TDs, defense helps Sacred Heart top Lehigh, 13-6
A swarming defense led the way for Sacred Heart (7-4), allowing six points, no touchdowns and recording a season-high five sacks. Chris Agyemang, playing his last game at Sacred Heart’s Campus Field, had five tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
Still, the Pioneers trailed for three quarters until Chestnut’s two late TDs. His 9-yard run made it 7-6 Pioneers early in the fourth and his insurance TD came on a 40-yard gainer with 1:38 left.
With less than 30 seconds remaining, Lehigh (4-6) was threatening but Kevin Peprah chased Alec Beesmer out of the pocket on fourth-and-15 at midfield, and Beesmer’s attempted pass was broken up downfield by Shawn Ramcheran. The Pioneers ran out the clock.
