Cornell cruises to victory over High Point

The No. 12 Cornell men’s lacrosse team has had its arsenal of offensive weapons on display in the opening games of the 2020 season, and that was no different today. Led by Jeff Teat and John Piatelli, who both reached milestone career point totals on Sunday, nine different Big Red players scored in Cornell’s convincing 21-11 victory over High Point at Calvert Hall High School in Baltimore. With the win, the Big Red improves to 3-0 on the season.

Teat was one of two Cornell student-athletes to score seven points in Sunday’s contest, scoring three goals and dishing out four assists. With his seven points, Teat reached the 250-point plateau for his career, becoming only the fourth player in Big Red men’s lacrosse history to accomplish this feat. His 255 career points makes him only two away from surpassing Eamon McEneaney ’77 (256 points) and moving into third all-time in the Cornell record books. Teat is also climbing up the Ivy League record books, now ranking seventh all-time in conference history in career points and eighth all-time in career assists (145).
