Laxers Fall To Cornell, 11-9
April 16, 2004
Sophomore Kate Staley (Needham, MA) led Brown (5-4, 2-2 Ivy) with four goals, three of which were scored in the first half, in an 11-9 loss to Cornell (2-8) on Friday afternoon at Stevenson Field.
The Bears came out strong, scoring the first goal of the game less than two minutes in at 1:59. Cornell then countered with a goal almost four minutes later at 6:15. Keeping the tempo lively, Brown lead with a free position goal scored by senior midfielder Emily Blaton (Shaker Heights, OH) less than two minutes later to bring the score 2-1. This marked the last time the Beats would lead in the game, with Cornell producing with four unanswered goals before the Bears were able to find the net at 20:56 with Staley's second goals of the game. Cornell again responded with two back-to-back goals to spread the scoring gap to 2-5. Brown was able to notch another two goals in the first half, a third by Staley and one by senior Laurel Pierpont (Jacksonville, FL), however, Cornell was also able to post two additional goals before the clock expired. Brown went into halftime trailing 5-7.
The second half was much the same, with Brown senior Christine Anneberg (Denver, CO) scoring the first point of the half at 33:18 and Cornell going on another scoring spree, tallying four goals in nine minutes before Brown made a goalie change at 19:56. Brown rallied at the end, with three goals in the last five minutes of play, with Pierpont, Staley, and Anneberg all adding a goal apiece.
Starting in the net for the Bears was junior Julia Southard (Manhasset, NY) who made ten saves, while Maggie Fava made 11 saves for the Big Red. Sophomore Jessica McNell (Darien, CT) came in with 10:04 left in the second with the Bears down 11-6 and was able to hold off Cornell for the rest of the half, but the Bears couldn't make up the lost ground to secure a victory.
The Bears will be back in action Monday, April 16 against Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. Game time is 4:00pm.
