Late season loss could go a long way for Cornell

As the final buzzer sounded at Princeton’s Class of 1952 Stadium on Saturday, Cornell men’s lacrosse saw the end of its impressive seven-game win streak — a run that helped catapult the team to near the top of the national rankings.

It was the second time in three years that Cornell’s regular season ended with a loss on its conference rival’s turf. But this time, the Red’s season isn’t over. The Ivy League tournament is less than a week away, and Cornell is one win away from a potential date with national No. 1 Yale for a rematch of a loss earlier this season.

“It’s obviously a disappointing loss,” said interim head coach Peter Milliman after the March 17 loss to the Bulldogs. “We wanted that one very badly. I felt like we were competing well enough to deserve it, but we didn’t earn it at the end of the day.”
