Cornell off to best start since 2007 after win vs. Colgate

HAMILTON, N.Y. -- Fourth-ranked Cornell jumped out to a 10-4 lead and then held off a late Colgate surge to earn a hard-fought 15-10 victory at Andy Kerr Stadium. With the win, the Big Red is 7-0 to start a season for the first time since the 2007 campaign, while the Raiders slipped to 6-2 overall.

Dan Lintner finished with five goals, four of which were assisted by Matt Donovan, and handed out one assist for a team-high six points. Donovan also registered one goal to finish with five points, while Connor Buczek tallied four goals, all of which came on stellar individual efforts. Chris Cook was the only other multi-point player for Cornell, with his first goal and first assist of the season. Altogether, nine Big Red players found the scoring column, as John Edmonds, Joe Paoletta, Mike Huttner and Connor Entenmann each added one goal and Marshall Peters tallied one assist. For Huttner and Peters, who teamed up on a man-down tally with 2:38 to play, the points were the first of their collegiate careers.

Colgate was led by Brendon McCann with three goals and one assist, while Ryan Walsh added two goals and one assist. Kevin Adams (two goals), Matt Clarkson (one goal, one assist) and Eric Foote (one goal, one assist) all finished with two points for the Raiders.

Both goalies played well despite tough conditions as a setting sun caused shadows on the field. Cornell freshman Christian Knight posted his third consecutive double-digit save contest with 11 saves, while Raider rookie Brandon Burke stopped 10.

For the first time all season, the Big Red was outshot (32-31), but put more shots on goal than Colgate (25-21). Cornell also won the ground ball battle (32-28) and Doug Tesoriero overcame a slow start in the face-off circle to win 14-of-27 and pick up nine ground balls.

The Big Red's man-up units were also solid, scoring on 2 of 3 extra-man chances, while holding Colgate to a 1 of 6 performance, while also registering the first man-down goal of the season.
