CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind – The Cornell men's lacrosse team finished their spring break trip in Indiana on Wednesday night, defeating Wabash College 17-16 at Fischer Field.
In a game that came down to the final seconds, Cornell (4-2 overall, 1-0 MLC) was able to come up with a defensive stop securing the victory.
Wabash (3-3 overall) was the first to get on the board with 4:45 remaining in the first quarter, but Cornell went on to rattle off five goals, all in a span of three minutes to wrap up the first period.
The teams went on to play the next two periods even, before the Little Giant's late comeback attempt came up short in the fourth quarter.
Cornell was very efficient offensively, firing off 52 shots, picking up 53 ground balls, and completing 13-of-15 clears.
Michael Paquette (JR/Erie, Colo.) tallied four goals, one assist, and four ground balls off the bench. Carlos Siguenza (JR/Minneapolis, Minn.) and A.J. Fisher (JR/Elgin, Ill.) added three goals apiece to the Rams scoring column. Braedon Geraghty (SO/Otsego, Minn.) and Conor Hollowell (JR/Portland, Ore.) each netted two.
Siguenza recorded a mammoth 21 ground balls, and 24-of-32 faceoff victories. Both of which are new single-game highs for the third-year program.
Ben Totman (JR/Geneva, Ill.) (1-0) got his first start in Ram net on the year, going the distance and corralling in 10 saves.
Coming up – The Rams are back in action on March 22 at Ash Park Stadium. They will face off against first-year program Monmouth College (2-4 overall, 1-1 MLC) at 5 p.m.
