Following a tough road loss against No. 5/5 Syracuse Tuesday, the men’s lacrosse team will be on the road again this weekend, traveling north to Hanover, N.H., for a game against Ivy competitor Dartmouth. A win would keep the No. 3/3 Red (7-2, 3-0 Ivy) at the top of the Ancient Eight standings, as well as provide a surge of much-needed momentum for Cornell before the team faces No. 2/2 Princeton and No. 11/11 Brown next week.
“[A win against Dartmouth] is definitely huge,” said senior middie John Glynn. “We’ve spent a lot of time reviewing the tape from the Syracuse game. We want to correct any and all of the mistakes we made against them.”
Dartmouth, an Ivy rival, is by necessity an important match, regardless of either team’s current record.
