Final Stats?

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Brant Hall threw for 213 yards and ran for 119 and two touchdowns to lead Lehigh to a 34-10 win over Princeton in front of 10,893 at Goodman Stadium. The game was the season-opener for the Tigers, while Lehigh, ranked 10th in Division I-AA, improved to 2-0.

Princeton led 3-0 at halftime after a 37-yard Taylor Northrop field goal on the final play of the second quarter, but Lehigh scored 24 straight points in the third quarter to take control. Princeton answered with a three-yard touchdown pass from David Splithoff to Blair Morrison that capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive in the fourth quarter to make it 24-10, but Lehigh added a field goal and an interception return for a touchdown to seal it. Splithoff, the sophomore quarterback who started two games last year before missing the remainder of the season with a broken jaw, completed 31 of 39 passes for 228 yards and a touchdown. His 31 completions were five off the school single-game record and the most by a Princeton quarterback in a game since Doug Butler completed 32 against Lafayette in 1983.

Chisom Opara had nine receptions for 81 yards, while Nate Lindell caught five passes in his first game after returning from a torn ACL last year.

Brandon Mueller led Princeton with six solo tackles and two assists, while Bob Farrell had 6.5 tackles. Zak Keasey had six unassisted tackles, three of which were for loss. Paul Simbi had an interception.

Northrop averaged 47.3 yards per punt on six punts, and he put three inside the Lehigh 10.

Princeton opens its Ivy League season Saturday night, Sept. 29, at Princeton Stadium (7 p.m.).
