Cornell’s four-game win streak snapped with overtime loss to Harvard

Harvard’s Sean Farrell deposited his own rebound past Cornell goaltender Ian Shane 1:11 into overtime to aid the No. 7-ranked Crimson to a 2-1 victory over Cornell in the latest installment of the bitter rivalry between the two Ivy League programs before a sold-out crowd of 4,267 at Lynah Rink on Friday night.

The victory for Harvard (8-1-1, 7-0-0 ECAC) snapped Cornell’s four-game win streak.

Farrell and Matt Coronato each registered two-point nights for the visiting Crimson. Joe Miller scored the other goal for Harvard.

Mitchell Gibson made 22 saves between the pipes for Harvard, who has now won 14 of its last 16 ECAC regular-season games, dating back to last season.

Travis Mitchell scored the lone goal for Cornell with Sean Donaldson and Tim Rego being credited with assists. Shane made 21 saves in the defeat for the Big Red (6-5-0, 4-3-0 ECAC).

The Big Red will try to bounce back on Saturday when they host Dartmouth at 7 p.m.
