Cornell falls to Yale in Ivy League Tournament, 14-11

The Cornell Big Red men’s lacrosse team fell to the Yale Bulldogs, 14-11, in the 2022 Ivy League Tournament on Friday night in Providence, Rhode Island.

The difference in the game was the second quarter when Yale outscored Cornell 3-0. The two teams scored the same amount of goals in every quarter, but the second.

Michael Long recorded six points on five goals and an assist to lead Cornell. John Piatelli recorded a hat trick, while Gavin Adler was outstanding on the defensive end. He caused four turnovers, won five ground balls, and limited the nation’s leading scorer, Yale’s Matt Brandau to a goal and an assist. Chayse Ierlan made 13 saves in goal, including 12 over the final three quarters after a wild first 15 minutes. Angelo Petrakis was 11-of-26 on face-offs with six ground balls.
