Kely Ferris finished with 14 saves in goal for Lehigh, while Hawks goalkeeper Suzy Herlihy totaled 13 saves.
“It’s always good to get that first game under your belt and to get the win is a nice bonus,” Redfern said. “I think the second half was closer than it needed to be and we’ll have to address some of our weaker spots this week in practice, but we’ll take the win.”
Lehigh got off to a fast start scoring the game’s first five goals, including MacIntyre’s first score just 27 seconds into the contest. The lead was 9-3 at halftime.
