Christian Knight was again a wall, Jeff Teat orchestrated a buttoned-up offense and Jake Pulver’s longpole goal highlighted a 9-1 Cornell run as the Big Red won the 2018 Ivy League Men’s Lacrosse Tournament with a dominant 12-8 win over #1 ranked Yale on Sunday afternoon at Columbia’s Wien Stadium. The Big Red won its second Ivy Tournament title and claimed the conference’s automatic bid to NCAAs while improving to 12-4.
Knight made 16 saves, giving him a tournament record 35 stops in Cornell’s two wins, on his way to tournament MVP honors. He also moved within three saves of jumping into the top four in school history in saves, improving his number to 585. Teat had a goal and five assists to lead a Big Red offense that assisted on nine of its scores and moved into a fifth-place tie for career assists with 98. His 96th point of 2018 matches the great Eamon McEneaney for fifth on the single-season list. Clarke Petterson, meanwhile, had three goals and an assist, becoming the 43rd player in school history to reach 100 career points.
