Cornell Women’s Soccer Notches First Win Over Siena College 1-0

For the second year in a row, the women’s soccer team kicked their season off against in-state opponent Siena College. While last year’s opener ended in a draw, this year’s saw Cornell get the better of the Saint Bernards in a 1-0 win. Junior forward Paige DeLoach had the team’s lone goal in the fifth minute which was all that was necessary to secure the win.

Men’s Lacrosse Drops Final Game to Princeton, Blames Poor Offensive Execution

The Cornell men’s lacrosse team (6-7, 1-5 Ivy) finished its season on a disappointing note this Saturday with a 7-6 loss to rival Princeton (5-8, 2-4 Ivy). Although the game had no postseason implications, the Cornell-Princeton rivalry is one of the oldest in collegiate lacrosse and there is always pride riding on the game for the sake of the rivalry regardless of each team’s standings. Early goals from senior midfielder Ryan Matthews and sophomore midfielder Kason Tarbell left the Red with an early 2-0 lead with 11:26 remaining in the first quarter. However, three late first quarter goals from Princeton junior attack Gavin McBride (and one from junior defenseman Marshall Peters) left the teams tied 3-3 going out of the first quarter. The Tigers outscored the Red 3-1 in the second quarter to send the game to halftime with Princeton leading 6-4.

Unlike most years, neither team is in contention for either the Ivy League or NCAA tournaments. This means that the game carries no weight in postseason play. Nevertheless — given it is one of the best rivalries in collegiate lacrosse — there is a lot of pride that comes with the game.
