The Cornell Big Red men’s lacrosse team (9-1, 3-1 Ivy) rolled past the Harvard Crimson (7-2, 2-1 Ivy), 17-9, on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field.
It was a very low-scoring first quarter as each team scored just one goal. Then, it started raining goals. Cornell outscored Harvard 16-8 over the final three quarters to secure the victory.
Michael Long had three goals and four assists and CJ Kirst had three of each for a six-point game. John Piatelli scored four goals for the Big Red, moving into the school’s top 10 career list. Hugh Kelleher netted two goals while Billy Coyle, Ryan Sheehan, Alex Holmes, Spencer Wirtheim and Danny Caddigan also tallied in the win.
Chayse Ierlan made 10 saves in goal and Angelo Petrakis won 17-of-27 face-offs.
Miles Botkiss, Austin Madronic and Andrew Perry each notched two goals for Harvard. Charlie Olmert, Hayden Cheek and Joe Dowling also scored in the loss.
Kyle Mullins made 14 saves for the Crimson.
Cornell will face Syracuse on Monday at the Carrier Dome. Face-off is slated for 7 p.m.
