This weekend was full of ups and downs for Cornell field hockey (4-5, 1-2 Ivy), but was capped by a thrilling double overtime win at Holy Cross. Despite starting the weekend with a disappointing 3-0 loss to conference foes Yale (3-6, 1-2 Ivy) the Red were able to refocus and beat Holy Cross, 4-3, in a thrilling overtime contest on Sunday.
On Saturday, in New Haven, the Bulldogs came out strong and were able to take an early lead when Junior Midfielder Emily Schuckert beat Cornell goalie Elizabeth Schaeffler in the seventh minute. According to senior captain Hannah Balleza, conceding early goals has been an area where the Red has struggled this season.
“I think it comes down to how focused each individual is when it comes to the start of play. We need everyone on the same page, and when we aren’t, that’s when we breakdown as a team,” she said.
