Cornell travels to Penn in hopes of igniting conference season (preview)

For the fourth time in three weeks, Cornell men’s lacrosse will square up against a top-20 opponent when it travels to Philadelphia to take on Penn in search of its first conference win of the year.

The Red (3-3, 0-1 Ivy) is fresh off a tough loss to Yale in its Ivy opener at Schoellkopf Field last weekend.

“We need to execute a bit better,” said interim head coach Peter Milliman. “I thought we did a lot of things in the middle of the field well … But we didn’t execute well enough on offense or defense.”

Meanwhile, the Quakers (5-3, 1-0 Ivy) have won two in a row, most recently against Bucknell in which it edged out a close, 9-8 win over the Bison on Tuesday.

Penn boasts one of the best defenses in the country, allowing a stingy 8.38 goals per game to its opponents.
