“It was close,” said freshman center Morgan Axenfeld of the Loyola game. “But we’re excited for Harvard this weekend. We lost to them last year and they have a very strong lineup with a lot of good freshmen, but we definitely have a shot.”

Along with the defeat by Penn, Harvard is coming off of a tough loss to Boston University, who defeated the Crimson, 13-9 at Cumnock field last Wednesday. The Terriers began with an 8-1 lead –– a lead they maintained, though with not as large of a margin, throughout the remainder of the game to defeat Harvard. After facing Harvard tomorrow afternoon, the Red will travel to Florida where it will take on the Gators on their home turf on the Sunday concluding Spring Break. In contrast to Cornell’s long history of lacrosse, the Gators make up a new team in the league. Axenfeld said this could be a tough match-up for Cornell.

“They’re a new team so they’re also a young team. We definitely have the edge on them in terms of experience,” Axenfeld said. “On the other hand, they get all the top recruits so they’re going to be very good.”
