No. 14 Cornell Rallies Down Four, Tops No. 7 Penn State in 2OT

Penn State freshman midfielder Ally Heavens (Garnet Valley, Pa.) opened scoring in the second half, converting a free position shot, before goals from Toppe and D'Amico made it a one-goal game with Cornell leading 8-7. The game was one of streaks until the end of regulation with Penn State rattling off the next three goals with one each from Lechner, sophomore midfielder Haley Ford (White Hall, Md.), and Mackenzie Cyr to take the 11-7 lead, equaling the team's largest advantage of the game.

The Big Red offense heated up down the stretch, starting with a free position goal from Caroline Salisbury with 13:47 to play. A goal from D'Amico, a conversion from Toppe and one final goal from D'Amico knotted the game at 11-11 with 7:17 left to play. The five-goal run was the largest of the day for either team.

Neither team got on the board again in regulation, and the game went into overtime. Salisbury found the back of the net again for Cornell with 2:24 left in the first period, but Mosketti found McCormick with 47 seconds to play with the score 12-12. The second period was scoreless, but Cornell struck again in the second overtime on another goal from Salisbury to win the battle, 13-12.

Despite 12 saves, Penn State freshman goalkeeper Emi Smith (Denver, Colo.) was credited with the loss. Cornell's Courtney Gallagher made eight saves in the Big Red victory. Shots were a 35-28 advantage for the Big Red, with Cornell outshooting Penn State 18-10 in the second half.
