Another week and another win for the Red. Trailing in the opening minutes, No. 4 Cornell, now 8-0 overall and 2-0 in league play, regained composure to hand Penn a 17-9 contest Saturday in Philadelphia.
“We had a pretty scary first quarter there. We went down a couple of goals,” senior midfielder Doug Tesoriero said. “Second quarter’s kind of been our quarter this year and we came back, got settled in and we turned it on.”
The Red got on the board first after an unassisted strike from sophomore attackman John Edmonds, but the Quakers responded with three goals of their own to make to take a 3-1 lead with 6:59 remaining in the quarter. Just two minutes later, the score stood at 4-2 with four minutes left. Junior midfielder John Hogan and Edmonds each responded to knot the game at four apiece, but perhaps no play was bigger than an improbable 50-yard strike in the quarter’s closing moments, which put the Red back on top, 5-4.
