|Syracuse 9 vs. Cornell 10 (OT)
College Crosse Recap.
Amazing game in Ithaca that went final while we were taping the podcast. Cornell stunned the Orange in OT to get their 5th win of the season. The Big Red were led in scoring by Clarke Petterson with 3 Gs, the last of which tied the game at 8 with a little over 8 minutes to play. Syracuse's Nick Mariano scored less than a minute later to retake the lead for the Orange. Cornell's Dan Bockel then scored to tie the game at 9 with 7:46 to play. Neither team would score again before the end of regulation. In OT, Ryan Matthews stuffed in the game winner for the Big Red.
Syracuse played well and beat Cornell in almost every single team stat category. Indeed, the Orange received another stellar performance from Ben Williams who won 18/22 faceoffs. Additionally, Nick Mariano had 4 Gs, the Orange had nearly half the number of turnovers as the Big Red (6 to 10, respectively), and Syracuse had 4 EMOs to Cornell's 1. However, Cornell's Brennan Donville's 13 saves stymied the Orange offense as they failed to get double digits for only the 3rd time all season. Cornell also received a couple big goals from Kason Tarbell.
Cornell at 5-5, still has some work to do in the Ivy (1-3), but this was definitely the kind of win that can reinvigorate a team down the stretch. Syracuse is now 6-4 on the season and 1-2 in the ACC. Another OT loss has not gone over well in Orange comments sections around the world.
