Yale overpowers Cornell in Ivy lacrosse opener

After a strong start to the season, Cornell men’s lacrosse lost its second game in three outings, as Ivy-favorite and reigning national champion Yale proved too strong for the Red Saturday and came away with a 16-11 victory.

The Bulldogs (4-1, 1-0 Ivy League) opened with the first three goals of the contest and never looked back. In the second quarter, Cornell (4-2, 0-1) cut its deficit to one but fell behind and was not able to muster a run to get back into the game. Yale led in shots on goal, 31-20.

“I think we took a little bit of a step back in our focus and just in general did not look like we were ready to play,” said head coach Peter Milliman. “Yale’s very good at everything, and they challenged us and we didn’t respond.”
