Cornell gears up to face #1 Albany

With the first win of 2018 under its belt, Cornell men’s lacrosse will attempt to shock No. 1 Albany in potentially its toughest matchup of the young season.

The upcoming contest this Saturday comes about a year after a resounding 17-6 loss to the Great Danes at home last season, which gave the Red its worst start since 1997.

This time around, Albany (2-0) is the top team in the nation in the Inside Lacrosse poll while Cornell (1-1) has received no votes.But the Red will look to return the favor on Albany’s turf in the hopes of spoiling the home team’s No. 1 ranking.

“Albany’s very confident; we need to go in with an edge as well,”said interim head coach Peter Milliman. “I think we need to go in that game knowing that we belong and doing a good job to execute our assignments.”

The team is headed in the right direction after grabbing a 15-8 win over Hobart for its first win of the season, despite trailing 5-1 early in the first quarter. Getting out of the gate with a lack of energy is a point which the team hopes to fix going forward.
