Red Fails to Capitalize On Power Play Chances

While most college students were out partying on Friday night, the Dartmouth Big Green hockey team was doing its homework — on the Red. On Saturday night, when the teams faced off in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs, the Red played from behind all night and succumbed to the Green’s relentless effort by a score of 5-3. Dartmouth’s hard work paid off and earned it a chance to play a third game in the quest for the ECAC hockey quarterfinals.

M. Lacrosse Must Step Up Play To Compete With Elite Foes

Tomorrow, the men’s lacrosse team will host their home opener, for real this time. After the scheduled home opener against Binghamton was canceled due to inclement weather, the Red will finally play a regular season game at home on Schoellkopf Field against the Army Black Knights.
“We need to get a win,” said senior John Glynn. “To start 1-1 this year is not a great way to start. We are definitely looking to this week and trying to get a win over a very good Army team.”

Red Hopes to Follow Up on Decisive Win

Any yearly event that allows a guy to shove his Gillette razor in the back of the drawer is probably cause for excitement, but the first round of ECAC playoff hockey means more than just a playoff beard to the men’s hockey team. Without a first-round bye and one less week to grow some facial fuzz, the Red will start off a best-of-three series against Dartmouth at Lynah Rink tonight.
“It’s playoff time, obviously its going to be fast and hard-nosed,” said sophomore alternate captain Colin Greening.

M. Icers drop second contest of weekend to Ivy-leader Princeton

“Rollercoaster ride” doesn’t even begin to describe the ups and downs the men’s hockey team has experienced as the regular season reaches its end and the stakes get ever higher. Despite a thrilling over-time victory against Quinnipiac the night before, the Red (13-11-3, 11-8-1 ECAC Hockey) struggled to hit its stride on Saturday night against the Princeton Tigers (17-10-0, 14-6-0), suffering a 2-1 loss in Hobey Baker Rink.

Men's Hockey Seeks Bye Week in Playoffs

For the Red this weekend, hockey is a numbers game. The difference between number four and five has never meant more than it will tonight and tomorrow night when the Red (12-10-3, 10-7-1 ECAC Hoc­key) go on the road for the last time this regular season to compete a­gainst Quinnipiac (17-9-4, 9-5-4 ECAC Hockey) and Princeton (15-10-0, 12-6-0 ECAC Hockey). The fourth place ECAC finish means a first-round playoff bye. Fifth means one more weekend of hockey.

M. Lax Scrimmages Hopkins

Though an ever-present wintry mix falls from the sky in Ithaca, some athletes already have spring on the mind. Regardless of weather or season, the men’s lacrosse team was ready to take the field on Saturday in its second scrimmage of the year. The Red faced the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays — the reigning NCAA champions.

Cornell surrenders two-goal cushion in

What started as one bad weekend against Clarkson and St. Lawrence turned into a three-game losing streak Friday night, when Union (13-10-5, 8-5-4 ECAC) pulled off a come-from-behind 3-2 win against the Red (11-10-3, 9-7-1 ECAC Hockey) at Lynah Rink.
“It’s just one of those things where it’s been happening all year and we’ve talked about and talked about it,” said senior co-captain Topher Scott. “We talk about it all the time but it’s a fact of doing it. It’s time we start walking the walk and become a top-tier team in this league because we are. We’re just not playing like it. It’s not the whole game. It’s just for some reason or another we are letting up. It’s got to stop.”

Voting Polls or Kickball: Borofsky Decides

I know that my job is to write a sports column (among other things) but like most college students/Americans, in general, I just can’t ignore all the presidential hullabaloo. So, like a good little fledgling citizen, I’ve been mulling over the issues, comparing and contrasting the candidates. With so much time to consider the “issues” until my very first voting experience (scrapbook, here I come), I decided two things: One, arguing about the issues is like talking about Barry Bonds…we all already know our opinions and two, there was definitely a better method of deciding who was “cool” in elementary school and it went by the name of kickball.

Men's Hockey Vies for Top Spot

­­­­Sitting in sole possession of second place in the ECAC Hockey standings, the Red is gearing up to close the gap between itself and its first place rival, the Clarkson Golden Knights tonight at Cheel Arena. Tomorrow night the Red will travel to Appleton Arena to take on the St. Lawrence Saints, ranked No. 9 in the conference.

Nash Provides Goal, Assist in Victory

HAMILTON, N.Y. — Many spectators experienced déjà vu Saturday night when the game at Starr rink in Hamilton started off similarly to Friday night’s match-up against Colgate at Lynah. However, thanks to a late game-winner by freshman Riley Nash, who notched two points on the night, the Red defeated the Raiders by a score of 3-1 thereby completing a sweep in the home-on-home weekend.
