There is apparently no video capability at the field where they are playing, which makes no sense. not sure what that means -- that the neutral venue can't/won't provide a crew?

2-0 PSU late first; still losing all face-offs; now 3-0 after one

Getting looks but missing cage

Re: Cornell lacrosse 2018 - Penn State 3/10 Cornell 9-7

Penn State 4-2 at the half. Bunch of turnovers and failed clears hurting Cornell.

Up to 6-2 PSU late in the third. Third ends 6-3 on Teat third goal.

Fourth: Pettison cuts cuts margin to 6-4 2 minutes into fourth quarter. Midway through, Teat and McCulloch hit the pipe within 15 seconds. Dowiak cuts it to 6-5 with 8 minutes left, evens it at 6 with 7:23 left. 3G, 2A for Teat so far. Cornell wins the ensuing faceoff (finally) and gets called for failure to advance; too much of that happened at Albany, too. Followed by an offside penalty against Cornell, leads to a PSU goal as the penalty expires, 7-6, PSU. Ouch. Petterson from Piatelli ties at 7 with 4-1/2 to play.

Last 3 minutes: Dowiak third goal on skip pass from Teat with 2:02 left gives Cornell 8-7 lead.

Last 2 minutes: PSU wins faceoff, takes TO with minute to play. PSU restarts, passes the ball out of bounds. Unsettled clear by Cornell, Petterson picks up, puts Cornell up 9-7 with :25 to go. Delayed pentalty on PSU gives Cornell the ball, no need for faceoff. Final 9-7.

... as the basketball game starts to slip away vs. Harvard. At least we sneaked into the playoff.

Awesome come from behind win. Rather we'd done it last week against #1 Albany. But okay, we're coming back.

Jeff Teat 2-4--6. Dowiak and Petterson 3-0--3 each. Knight 13 saves, 7 GA, 65%. Cornell took only one penalty.

Great comeback after a rough start. Someone on Laxpower said we actually won 10 of 13 2nd half faceoffs—is that right?

Quite a difference from last year’s 20-10 loss to PSU. We’re certainly trending in the right direction, and Milliman is making a good case for removing the interim tag.

Huge Ivy opener with Yale next week at the Kopf. Hopefully I’ll be watching on ILDN from Lake Placid.

Yes, Cornell won the majority of FOs second half.

Maybe we can find a Placid bar that lets us jack into a TV on the wall. Somebody bring a long HDMI cable with their laptop. Or a Roku stick (and the remote), would be even simpler. I think Wiseguys would be the easiest to convince. It's so big, giving up one TV is no loss. It's 5 minutes from the rink.

The fourth quarter was a thing of beauty.

Boxscore, PSU version (Cornell yet to post but should be the same):

Cornell was 8 of 19 on faceoffs but I believe we won the majority in the second half. We outshot Penn State 41-29. We were 0x6 on EMOs which is not good. We were even on turnovers at 13 each but it seemed as if we turned the ball over and lost more faceoffs in the first half than PSU did.

Elsewhere

Yale 8, Fairfield 3
Princeton 15, Rutgers 14 (OT)
Villanova 8, Penn 6 (Penn which had beaten then #1 Duke Feb. 24)
Harvard 11, Providence 8
(Tuesday) Brown 12, Villanova 9 (Villanova #4 going in to the game)
Dartmouth (did not play)
Columbia (does not play)

Paul R was 8 of 15 on FO, after Cornell went 0-4 in the 1st with Flynn and Dowiak (which was an odd strategy, IMO).

Meanwhile, Yale's Conor MAckie was 15 of 15 on FO against Fairfield today.

Going to be a tough battle next week.

Can't think of any other sport's change-of-possession / after score protocol where one side with a dominant player can gather possession 90% of the time. Jabbar, Chamberlain got, what, 60%, 70% of tips. The most dominant center, probably the same. And those in sports where possession is fleeting.

This team had a slow start but seems to be getting stronger every week. We might have some things to say about the Ivy League title this year.

A couple of questions for the group.

1) We were up by 2 against Albany with about 3 minutes to play with the ball and a win in clear sight. After a break, the radio announcer on WHCU (don't know his name) said that Cornell committed an offensive penalty and Albany gained possession. Does anyone have any details on this? What was the penalty? Was it a good/bad call?

2) I have many good memories from Tambroni's time at Cornell. What was the real reason he left such a strong team for Penn State? I've never understood this decision.

Thanks.

You have good memories of Tambroni at Cornell. We do, too, including the fond memory of blowing out Virginia in the 2009 semifinal and then leading Syracuse for fifty-nine plus minutes of the title game. From there, it's a blank.

Penn State pays more. It's a chance to build a newish team into a national powerhouse. His wife, Lisa (?), has Penn State ties and like an endowed professorship here, PSU made a husband/wife package deal, IIRC. Penn State somehow manages to mask some of the coaching salaries even though it's a public school. One might expect a salary at Penn State in the $200,000 range. One can live nicely there.

Hmm. I thought there was the *opportunity* to do something with Penn State field hockey where she was an AA player. But if their children are not yet in HS, there is nothing better for a family, I believe, than one parent being able to be home with kids to help get them launched. And Jeff Tambroni's salary at Penn State made that even more possible than at Cornell. Even with the success of Cornell, Princeton, Brown, now Yale, w/o scholarships, Tambroni felt a scholarship school offered more possibilities. Regardless, he's long gone now. Let's hope Millman can do something with the this team. Both hockey and lax are doing better / way better than we expected pre-season. Too bad Albany slipped away.

Penn State did welcome Michelle back to the area in a press release that is fairly unusual: PSU release. She may volunteer some with the team, I don't follow enough Field Hockey to know.

The Cornell job pays reasonably well. I think they wanted a change of venue. BTW lacrosse has a long history at Penn State-hardly a newish program. Glen Thiel was their head coach for years. Tambroni has not done badly but has not achieved down there what he did at Cornell. There is something to be said for tradition and competing against Maryland and Hopkins is like pushing a big rock up a hill.

Well, not exactly. He left after the 2009 season, and we finished #1 in the Ivies every year until 2014, except for 2012, when we finished 2nd. Nationally we were ranked #1 according to Laxpower's Power Rating in 2010, 2011, and 2013. AN fired Ben DeLuca in the fall of 2013. Cornell had a successful year with his players the following spring. But the wheels started to come off after that.

I should have mentioned being comfortably up on another team and blowing it in the last quarter. IIRC, Tambroni did take some heat (among fans) for poor game management towards the end of the 2009 game.

Jeff was still with us in 2010, so he gets credit for that final four team (along with a sophomore named Pannell). And he took a lot of heat for overusing his first midfield line which would -- allegedly -- lead to fourth quarter fades. Have to admit that I thought about that sitting in the stands at Sparks on Saturday.

The team made the NCAAs in 2014 and 2015 (seeded eighth the latter year) after heavy 2013 graduation losses (Pannell, Mock, Van Bourgondien, Noble, Keith, Bronzino, et al), losing in the first round. Three years of recruiting weak in offensive talent (see this year's and last year's senior classes) resulted in sub-par 2016 and 2017 seasons. Now, with three strong recruiting classes on the offensive side (Teat, Pettersen, Piatelli, Fletcher, McCulloch, J. Donville, Duggan, Licciardi) we will, I hope, see a resurgence.

The Cornell job pays reasonably well...

But even though the Cornell head coach is endowed, the AD probably looked at that as allowing him to budget less for lacrosse rather than paying more to keep him. I'm pretty sure it was all about the dollars, and the stuff about a position for his wife was a smokescreen.

...lacrosse has a long history at Penn State-hardly a newish program. There is something to be said for tradition...

Correct about their program not being new. But compared to Cornell they have zero tradition and puny player alum support.

rss77

Correct. Even with those 12.5 scholarships, new facilities, and all that "We Are.." BS it's gonna be a long time, if ever, that he rivals JHU and UM. And he had to know it. That's another reason why I think it was the money.

Not the same. Although he plays a tough schedule, he's in a much less competitive conference. He's a proven recruiter without a lot of admission constraints and a Hall-of-Fame caliber coach for sure.

When you win the national title, you've essentially beaten every conference in the entire nation.

No. Not even close. You beat your own conference (if you're not an at large team) then one game against 2 more teams from perhaps two other conferences. As opposed to having two top playoff caliber teams before you even GET to the NCAA's, maybe even having to play them twice - regular season and conference tournament.

Cornell missed the injured players at SSDM. Their zone D got victimized a couple of times. Paul R and the wings did a good job of winning enough faceoffs to keep Cornell in the game.

Tough to take a loss, but the Red is much improved over last year.

Another quality loss, little or no sarcasm intended. Two-goal losses to #1 and #7 should do more for us than "also receiving votes" but it won't get us into the top ten, which feels like where Cornell should be later in the season. Nine of the top 20 as of the 3/12 NCAA poll had 2 or (#20) 3 losses

Because of the hockey game, I can't get an online radio stream of the game. It sounds like a great win for Cornell. Coach Milliman has really done a great job this far. Question: I see from the stats that Caelahn Bullen played goalie in the second half and Penn scored far fewer than the first half. Was it because he was that much better than Knight today, or did the defense pick it up? Or both? Thanks.

Over on the Laxpower forum there's some suggestion that CK had a minor injury.

Nice, much needed win over a good Penn team. First half was pretty even, but the D was giving up lots of good looks and Knight was not stopping them. Then he appeared to injure his leg on a hard shot. He finished the half with 3 saves against 10 goals. Then it seemed like Penn never got the ball in the 3rd. They scored one goal and Bullen had one save, while the Cornell offense scored 6. Cornell kept it up in the 4th, scoring 4 more goals against Penn's 2 (with 2 saves for Bullen) before adding 2 more empty-net goals as Penn went into desperation mode.

At one point, Knight was behind the goal going after a ground ball and he got hit pretty hard. No penalty, though. I was watching with no sound and wasn't paying close enough attention to see whether/when he left the game.

They really want people to pay for a parking spot for 15min?

why not start the game at 5:30 or stop ticketing at 4:30? Why are we creating this extra hastle?

• The Big Red has scored 20+ goals in two consecutive games (Penn – 20; Air Force – 23) for the first time since the 1976 team scored 26 goals vs. Dartmouth and followed that up with 24 goals vs. No. 19 Syracuse.

Cornell rolling toward a possible third straight 20-goal game. 7-1 after one, 10-2 7 minutes into the second. Cornell parents getting itchy (want to see their sons playing). Took Harvard the entire game to put up 10 and by that time Dartmouth had 8. 15-2 at the half. 4 goals for Dowiak, 4 assists for Teat.

Second half: And 17-5 midway through the third although only 4 points still for Teat; this game could hurt him statistically. <sarcasm font> Cornell scores with 0.1 left in third to to go up 19-7. Dowiak now up to 5G, Fletcher 4-2-6 and Teat 0-4-4 end of 3. Freshman Parker Henderer in goal for Cornell start of fourth. Cornell gets the 20th 3:30 into fourth (20-8). Dartmouth gets its 10th (22-10) with 3:40 left. Final 22-11. Cornell 22 goals on 27 SOG (81%).

Issue about reaching 20 is not if we can get 20, but rather if we will get 20. If Milliman goes into the next half up by 10+, substitutions will probably start very soon after.

Don't let Teat get hurt in Q4 of a runaway. Let everyone play and keep the parents, relatives, girlfriends happy. The sixth attackman was probably all-state.

The Big Red's offense was clicking on all cylinders, as the visitors [Cornell] scored its 22 goals on just 27 shots on goal and assisted on 17-of-22 goals. ...
Dartmouth's goalie Alex Burnley made just five saves to post the lowest save percentage (.185) of any Big Red opponent this season.
.185 save percentage for Dartmouth would pretty much define "sieve." Interesting that Dartmouth didn't turn to a backup. Maybe Burnley is the widest guy on the team. [youtu.be]

Love to see Cornell extend the school record three straight 20-goal games to four when Harvard comes to Schoellkopf Saturday. It's do-able: BU put up 18 against the Cantabs March 20 before losing in OT. Against common opponents Harvard beat Dartmouth 10-8 vs. our 22-11 win, and lost to Albany 14-6 vs. our 11-9 loss. On paper, this should be a W for Cornell except we can't look past them to Syracuse next Tuesday. Harvard's 7-2 record breaks down to 4-2 plus a two-goal win, a one-goal win, and an OT win. Harvard at best will finish out the season 2-2, could go 0-4 vs. Cornell, Penn, Princeton and Yale. All on the road.

[www.insidelacrosse.com] Cornell climbs from 13th to 10th in the April 2 media poll. Albany remains #1 with all first-place votes. Yale climbs from 4 to 3, Syracuse from 10 to 8, Penn State climbs from 21 to 15, Lehigh holds at 17 and Harvard holds at 19.

Unbeaten Albany has played only two close games: 11-10 over Maryland, 11-9 over Cornell, and the next closest game was a 6-goal MOV. It plays at Yale April 22.

Kessenich has Cornell 8th. [www.insidelacrosse.com]
Quint Kessenich, Inside Lacrosse
8. Cornell — Jeff Teat led Cornell to a 23-7 win over Air Force on Tuesday. Clarke Petterson (3, 2) and Colton Rupp (3, 1) were productive.

The Big Red scored another 22 goals in a Saturday shellacking of Ivy doormat Dartmouth. It was step-down city for midfielders Connor Fletcher and Jordan Dowiak, as Jeff Teat drew all sorts of attention. Teat dished out eight assists [over 2 games, plus 3G vs. Air Force] and has ascended into the Tewaraaton discussion.

The Big Red have scored 20 or more goals in three-straight games. They tackle Harvard next.

I love how the Big Red players line up and salute their fans after a game and that George Bioardi's [Boiardi] legacy has become the fabric of the program.
[edit add]
[www.ncaa.com] Coaches poll 4/2 has Albany-Maryland 1-2 and the Ivies:

[www.insidelacrosse.com] Cornell climbs from 13th to 10th in the April 2 media poll. Albany remains #1 with all first-place votes. Yale climbs from 4 to 3, Syracuse from 10 to 8, Penn State climbs from 21 to 15, Lehigh holds at 17 and Harvard holds at 19.

Unbeaten Albany has played only two close games: 11-10 over Maryland, 11-9 over Cornell, and the next closest game was a 6-goal MOV. It plays at Yale April 22.

Kessenich has Cornell 8th.

———————————

Bill, looks like while IL hasn’t updated the USILA Coaches poll in several weeks, Cornell moved up a notch from 14 to 13 (via NCAA.com site) [www.ncaa.com]

they struggle against inverts and we dont really rely on 1 single guy to score even with teat getting so many assists.

Love to see Cornell extend the school record three straight 20-goal games to four when Harvard comes to Schoellkopf Saturday.

This is interesting when looking back on the Tambroni era where it seemed like crossing the 20-goal barrier was a no-no. Once the team reached 19 in blowouts, the dogs were really called off and running out the clock was the activity. Whether it was for sportsmanship reasons or whatever, I think it's just fine the team is allowed to run scoring plays up in that range now.

There will be a year when Harvard will be better than Cornell and decide to lay on a drubbing in retaliation. But we got to the high teens pretty quick. Teat was gone, I thought, midway through the third. We played goalies 2, 3 and 4 (2 being Bullen with #1 Knight hurt). The only thing Cornell could done was take the foot off the pedal sooner but then our shooting percentage was > 80% so anything on net was in. And now that we have three 20-goal games in a row, I can't think of a better team to lay 20 on than Harvard. We aren't getting 20 against Syracuse unless both sides play run, gun and no defense. Kessenich shamed, perhaps, the voters in the coach and media polls into thinking a little harder about Cornell. Thge media voters woke up finally to place Cornell 10th.

Quint said it was "step down city" against Dartmouth. What are "step downs" in lacrosse? It has something to do with "sliding"? (another term I do not fully understand)
