With the CSFL title already out of reach, Cornell sprint football came up short against Franklin Pierce, falling to the Ravens, 24-17, in its final game of the season. The Red (2-5), plagued by injuries all season, was without senior quarterback Rob Pannullo for much of the game, and was forced to start sophomore Connor Ostrander under center against the Ravens (4-3). “We were looking to win this one for the seniors,” Ostrander said. “It meant a lot for them, especially Pannullo because he couldn’t play. We were just trying to play as a team in honor of the seniors.”
Franklin Pierce got on the scoreboard first, but the Red blocked the Ravens’ extra-point attempt.
