BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- Quarterback Sedale Threatt Jr. accounted
for four touchdowns as Lehigh topped Bucknell 38-7 on Saturday.
Threatt scored on a pair of short runs in the first half as
Lehigh (3-4, 2-0 Patriot League) opened up a 17-7 lead at halftime.
Threatt tossed two touchdown passes less than two minutes apart in
the second half to cap the scoring.
Threatt completed 14 of 19 passes for 126 yards and added 35 on
the ground for the Mountain Hawks. Marques Thompson rushed for 126
yards on 16 carries for Lehigh and scored on a 19-yard run in the
Lehigh held Bucknell (4-4, 1-2) to just 68 yards passing, with
22 coming on the lone score for the Bison, a touchdown pass from
Marcello Trigg to Richard Simpson just before halftime. The Lehigh
defense held Trigg to just 5-for-12 passing and picked him off
twice, including one that set up Threatt's 29-yard scoring pass to
Mike Fitzgerald early in the fourth quarter.
Despite having little success through the air, Bucknell was able
to move the ball on the ground. Trigg led the way with 91 yards on
Jason Leo kicked a 25-yard field goal in the second quarter for
the Mountain Hawks.
