Sacred Heart Pioneers (6-4)


Late TDs, defense helps Sacred Heart top Lehigh, 13-6

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) Julius Chestnut scored on fourth-quarter runs of 9 and 40 yards as Sacred Heart came from behind to edge Lehigh 13-6 on Saturday.

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.
