M. Icers Beats Quinnipiac On Sudden Death Goal

On Friday, senior forward Evan Barlow’s overtime goal earned a 2-1 victory for Cornell over Quinnipiac, putting the Red back in the win column after a two-game losing streak. Junior defenseman Brendon Nash assisted on Barlow’s goal and added a score of his own to help his team in the win.
Both of the Red’s goals on Friday came in penalty periods; the Red was 2-of-10 on power play opportunities. According to Barlow, the Red’s ability to take advantage of power plays is integral in winning games.

W. Hockey Ends With Two Ties

Traveling to play Quinnipiac and Princeton this weekend, the women’s hockey team came away with tied results in both games — a 4-4 score against Quinnipiac and 2-2 against Princeton.
“Both games were kind of similar. We were winning, we had the lead, and they ending up coming back and getting us, tying us, which is unfortunate and frustrating at the same time,” said freshman forward Catherine White.

Sports Update: Barlow's Overtime Goal Lifts Men's Hockey Over Quinnipiac

Men’s Hockey

On Friday night, the Red got back in the win column after last weekend’s 0-1-1 showing. Evan Barlow scored 2:52 into the overtime period to earn a 2-1 Cornell victory over Quinnipiac at Lynah.
Quinnipiac struck early, as Bobcats defenseman Brett Dickinson tallied his first goal of the season to put his team up 1-0 just 1:30 into the game. However, Brendon Nash scored a power-play goal on a slap-shot from the point at 15:10 of the first frame to tie the game up.
The score stayed knotted at one until the end of regulation.
Barlow’s overtime goal was also scored on the power-play, after he received a pass from Brendon Nash and wired a slap-shot on net that went through the legs of Quinnipiac goalie Dan Clarke. Ben Scrivens made 25 saves in the winning effort.

M. Hockey Looks to Rebound Against Quinnipiac, Princeton

With a pair of top ECAC Hockey foes coming to Ithaca this weekend, Lynah Rink will host either a dramatic turnaround for the home team, or another troubling episode in a once-spotless season. The men’s hockey team has to overcome a string of bad fortune against Quinnipiac, which played Cornell to a tie back in November, when it takes the ice at Lynah tonight — with nationally-ranked defending ECAC champion Princeton coming tomorrow night.

W. Icers Look to Gain In ECACH Standings

After split results last weekend, the women’s hockey team will travel to take on Quinnipiac today and Princeton tomorrow in two league games that are important for deciding the team’s standings in the ECAC conference.
“Going into this weekend, we need to take what we brought in last weekend and just continue off of that note, because we did really well against Clarkson,” said sophomore defender Amber Moore.[img_assist|nid=34820|title=Moving up|desc=Sophomore defenseman Sam Wauer (11) and the Red would like to improve their seventh-place ranking.|link=node|align=left|width=|height=0]

Men's Basketball Outlasts Quinnipiac, Routs Ursinus

The men’s basketball team moved back over .500 with wins over Quinnipiac and D-III powerhouse Ursinus this week. With the wins, the Red improves to 8-6 on the season and remained perfect at Newman Arena, 5-0. Cornell has won 13 straight contests at home dating back to last season.
Senior guard Louis Dale showed why he is the reigning Ivy League Player of the Year with two clutch defensive plays late in the Red’s 73-70 win over Quinnipiac. He blocked a shot with 29 seconds left in the game then forced a held ball with 2.2 seconds left to give the Red possession. Junior forward Ryan Wittman was fouled after the inbounds pass and sank his two free throws to pad the Red’s lead. Dale, a team captain, and Wittman paced the offense with 23 and 25 points, respectively.

Stellar Goaltending Leads to Three-point Weekend

PRINCETON, N.J. — Balanced team play, solid defense and a well-placed shot by senior forward Tyler Mugford helped the men’s hockey team to a successful, three-point opening weekend of conference play on the road. The Red knocked off defending ECAC Hockey and Ivy League champ Princeton, 1-0, on Friday before battling to a scoreless tie against Quinnipiac on Saturday.
The Red (1-0-1, 1-0-1 ECAC) started off its 4 p.m. matchup with the Tigers (2-1, 1-1) with plenty of energy and enthusiasm in its first meaningful game of the season, but struggled in the first period with maintaining consistent, mistake-free play. Head coach Mike Schafer ’86 said that excitement and nerves probably contributed to the occasionally hectic atmosphere on the ice.

Welcome Back, Coach Schafer

Never before has Cornell hockey opened a season in such dramatic fashion. Junior goalie Ben “Mr. 0” Scrivens turned away all 68 shots he faced this weekend to shutout both No. 9 Princeton and Quinnipiac. Yet Cornell managed just one goal on the road trip and the Red rode home with three points in perhaps its most difficult test of the year.

Penalties Hurt Red In Home Weekend

The women’s hockey team started its regular season play this weekend with two frustrating home games — a 6-3 loss to Princeton on Friday and a 2-2 tie with Quinnipiac on Saturday. In both games, penalties seemed to be the downfall for Cornell.
“The penalties really killed us in both games,” said freshman forward Catherine White. “We had the advantage when we were five-on-five, but right when we started taking penalties and we were penalty killing, that’s when both [Princeton and Quinnipiac] scored their goals and that’s when they hurt us.”
