Yale outlasts Cornell Ivy lacrosse semifinal

Cornell freshman goalie Chayse Ierlan matched a career-high with 17 saves and junior attackman Jeff Teat registered five goals, matching Steve Mock ’13 for the most ever by a Big Red player in the Ivy League Tournament, but it wasn’t enough as the No. 2 Yale men’s lacrosse team dominated the middle portion of the second semifinal to claim a 15-10 victory this evening at Wien Stadium in New York City.

Teat scored the Big Red’s first three goals of the contest, with his first of the day coming just under four minutes into the game to cut Yale’s early lead to 2-1. That first goal was another milestone in an already impressive career as it was the 100th of his career, making him just the seventh player in Ivy League history, and third at Cornell, to register 100 goals and 100 assists in a career. He is just the 11th player in Big Red history to reach 100 career goals, and only the fourth to do so as a junior. The goal also allowed him to join Mike French as the only two players in Cornell history to post 30 goals and 30 assists in a season three times during their career.

The Big Red stayed within striking distances early in the contest as Teat completed the early hat trick to make it a 5-3 game at the 10:22 mark of the second quarter, but consecutive goals by Matt Brandau opened up a 7-1 Bulldog run, which ended with a goal by Teat.
