MOUNT VERNON – Cornell outshot visiting UW-Platteville but just couldn't find the net Wednesday afternoon, falling 5-1 in Mount Vernon.

The Rams (2-12) attempted 13 shots in the match compared to the Pioneer's (6-7) nine. Cornell was led by Elisabeth Sage (JR/Denver, Iowa) and Cali Pfleger (SO/Racine, Wis.) who fired five and three attempts, respectively.

Platteville took advantage of mistakes early, putting in three first half markers before adding two more for insurance in the second period.

Cornell got on the board in the 23rd minute as Pfleger scored her first goal of the season off of an assist by Darby Dowd (SO/Rathdrum, Idaho).

Ram goalkeeper Raphaela Cogan (FR/Northfield, Minn.) spent all 90 minutes between the posts and made two saves on the afternoon.

Coming up – Cornell faces Lawrence University (2-10, 0-4 MWC) Saturday at 1 p.m. in Appleton, Wis.
