“Our focus this year has been to finish games,” explained Cornell sprint football head coach Bart Guccia. The Red did just that in its 33-7 victory over Mansfield on Saturday, completing a 26-0 run over the last three quarters. The victory extended the Red’s (1-0) career undefeated streak against Mansfield (0-1). “Both the offense and defense did an excellent job in closing out the game,” Guccia said. “The defense shut them out after their initial score, and the offense was able to put some points on in the fourth quarter and seal the deal.”
“Both sides of the ball executed and finished in the second half and especially in the fourth quarter,” senior offensive co-captain and wide receiver Trevor Marrero added.
