Cornell gave up its second contest of the season in front of an energetic home crowd of almost 3,000 on Tuesday, falling short against No. 7 Syracuse. The Red now hold a 9-2 overall record for the season. The contest remained close until half time, when the Orange took over and dominated on attack to take the Red in a decisive 14-9 win.
The Orange jumped out to a quick start, taking a 4-1 lead after a pair of goals by junior midfielder Henry Schoonmaker and two more from junior offender Kevin Rice. The Red’s offense remained quiet. However, a goal by the Red’s junior midfielder John Hogan, sandwiched between the Rice pair, got the ball rolling. After Rice responded with his second goal, Cornell kicked it into high gear for the remainder of the half.
