Northwestern defeats Liberty 2-0 in the DI field hockey championship

ITHACA, N.Y. – The Cornell field hockey team upset No. 4 Louisville, 2-0, on Sunday, October 23. The Big Red were led by goals from Julia Darmo and Claire Jones. The win marks the biggest upset in program history with highest ranked-opponent win in the 50 years of Cornell field hockey.

The Cardinals maintained the offensive momentum through halftime, tallying three more shots on goal. Park notched two saves and Caroline Ramsey tallied her 11th defensive save of the season, thwarting a Louisville penalty corner opportunity.
