After defeating a tough No. 11 Loyola team last weekend, the women’s lacrosse team lost to Syracuse, 16-9, in a midweek non-conference matchup. On Saturday, the Red will resume Ivy play on senior day with its final game of the regular season on Schoellkopf Field.The Red (8-4, 3-2 Ivy League) looks to secure a spot in the Ivy League tournament with a win over Yale (5-8, 2-4). The Bulldogs are coming off two straight conference wins against Brown and Columbia, although they have not defeated a ranked opponent yet this season. Yale is led on offense by senior attack Caroline Crow, who has 29 goals and 11 assists on the year. Goaltender Erin McMullan has a 10.63 goals against average. In 33 total meetings between the two teams, Yale has been victorious 19 times, but the Red has won the last four matchups. Last season, Cornell won big, 14-3, thanks to a 13-0 run in the middle of the game led by four goals from senior attack Jessi Steinberg and three from senior midfielder Shannon McHugh. Although a win on Saturday will put the Red in a good position in the conference, it will also be bittersweet for the team’s six seniors, who will be ending storied careers on Schoellkopf Field. The seniors’ accomplishments in their four years include leading the team to its first-ever Ivy League Tournament two seasons ago and upsetting No. 2 Florida, 9-6, last year.A win on Saturday would keep the Red at least tied for third in the conference heading into the all-important final weekend of Ivy League play, when the team will face Brown.
