- Lafayette returns to Patriot League play on Saturday evening in the crosstown rivalry at Lehigh. The Leopards are coming off just their second win of the season, sitting at 2-10 overall and 1-3 in Patriot League play.

- Sophomore Evan Vare was a key part of both of Lafayette's tallies in the overtime win over Yale on Tuesday. Vare sent a cross into the box that was knocked in by freshman Martin Ssessanga to tie it up late in regulation at 1-1.
