Women's Lacrosse - Mon, May 1, 2017

WAVERLY, Iowa The Cornell women's lacrosse team fell to Wartburg College Saturday afternoon 19-9 in their season finale in Waverly, Iowa.

 

Junior Sydney Cooper (JR/Morton, Ill.) entered Saturday's Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference match with 99 career points. Cooper went on to fire off six goals and become the first Cornell lacrosse player, men's or women's, to surpass the 100 point mark.

The Rams (2-14 overall, 1-10 MWLC) got down early 5-0, until Cooper got them on the board with a extra-man opportunity goal at the 19:34 mark. Vaughn Zittle (SO/Washington, D.C.) and AJ Granados (FR/Albuquerque, N.M.) each chipped in a goal, while Cooper added three more, to give the Knights (8-9 overall, 4-7 MWLC) an 11-6 lead at the intermission.

In the second half, Wartburg pulled away behind the offense of Sophia Corpstein and Alex Pollock. They combined for 10 goals on the day.

Cornell failed to capitalize on three free-position shots, and was outshot 34-16. 

Head Coach Meredith Merce's squad saw steady improvement throughout the year, including averaging over 10.5 goals across the final five games. The Rams lost four games by five goals or less.

The highlight win of the season was a 19-2 victory over Olivet College in March, the largest margin of victory in the three years of the program.
