Cornell’s 10-game win streak halts with 2-1 loss at Dartmouth

The Cornell men’s hockey team had a season-high 40 shots on goal and hit the frame three more times, but the Big Red battled from behind almost all of Saturday night and couldn’t recover in a 2-1 loss to Dartmouth at Thompson Arena.

The loss ended the Big Red’s 10-game win streak to start the season, which marked the program’s best start in 50 years. In all of those 10 games, Cornell trailed for just 16 minutes, 5 seconds – but just 2:20 had elapsed Saturday when Dartmouth’s John Losurdo scored a power-play goal.

While Cornell was able to equalize on junior forward Morgan Barron’s team-leading seventh goal of the season with just 12.2 seconds left in the frame, Dartmouth countered with Matt Baker’s strike just 45 seconds into the second period. The rest was left up to Big Green goaltender Adrian Clark, who made 21 of his 39 saves in the third period with Cornell frenetically pressuring.
