Devin Dwyer's goal in final seconds propels Harvard past No. 6 Cornell

  Harvard is the first Ivy League program to defeat Cornell in back-to-back seasons since Brown in 2009-10.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Harvard won in thrilling fashion in front of a standing-room only crowd Saturday afternoon at Soldiers Field Lacrosse Stadium, as Devin Dwyer's goal with 32 seconds remaining put the Crimson over the top against No. 6 Cornell, 10-9.

Cornell (7-3, 3-1 Ivy League) had momentum on its side after Dan Lintner evened the score at 9-9 with just 40 seconds left in regulation. Domenic Massimilian won the ensuing face off for the Big Red, but his pass back toward Cornell's defensive third was intercepted by Dwyer, who faked once before putting the ball in the back of the net for the game winner.

Dwyer and Ian Ardrey each scored two goals on the day to lead the Harvard (5-5, 1-3 Ivy League) attack, with Ardrey adding one assist to finish with three points. Jack Breit, Morgan Cheek, Joe Lang, Sean McDonagh, Robert Mencke and Matt Ryan also got on the scoreboard, with McDonagh and Ryan also contributing one assist.

Bryan Moore earned his fifth win of the year in goal, turning aside 13 shots while limiting the high-powered Cornell attack to just nine goals. He was assisted by Walker Kirby who forced four turnovers and collected six ground balls, and Ryan who totaled three caused turnovers and three ground balls.

Lintner scored a hat trick to pace Cornell's offensive unit while Massimilian was dominate at the X, winning 17-of-23 face offs.

Christian Knight took the loss in goals, stopping eight shots against 10 goals allowed.
