No. 14 Cornell Comes from Behind to Defeat Albany

The Big Red was resilient, though, tallying goals from Moody, Toppe and Salisbury in a four-minute span to go ahead 7-6 with 8:46 left in the half.

Cornell controlled most of the draws in the first half, winning 10 to Albany's seven. In that three-goal span late in the half, Albany never had possession.

But after Cornell's three-goal streak, the Great Danes rattled off three of their own to take a 9-7 lead. Rachel Moody got the last laugh of the half, though, putting the ball in the back of the net to give her a hat trick and send Cornell into the break down by only one.

Moody's goal also extended the Big Red's streak of consecutive games with at least one player recording a hat trick. Cornell has now had a player score at least three goals in 29 consecutive games.

Scoring slowed considerably in the second half with only three goals combined in the first 15 minutes. Albany had two of those three and maintained a two-goal lead at 11-9 with a quarter of the game to go. But most of the rest of the tilt belonged to Cornell.

The Big Red continues its three-game road swing when it travels to No. 3 North Carolina for a 7:00 p.m. game on Wednesday.
