Justin Redd's 5-yard bounce shot on Cornell's first possession of overtime gave the 12th-ranked Big Red a 12-11 win over No. 4 Princeton yesterday, the program's first road victory over the Tigers since 1988.

The win was Cornell's first over Princeton (7-3, 3-1 Ivy League) in the teams' past nine meetings and put the Big Red (7-3, 4-1) in position to claim the Ivy League's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, which it would do by beating Brown this week.

Redd's goal came after Princeton scored three times in the final 1:49 to force overtime. Ryan Boyle (one goal, four assists) scored the tying goal with 24 seconds left.

But Cornell won the overtime's opening faceoff and got the ball to Redd (two goals, two assists), who was shut off on his first move but regrouped and came around the left side of the goal for the game-winner.

No. 5 Syracuse 18, Albany 8: Michael Powell's five goals and Steve Vallone's four helped the host Orangemen (9-2) drub the Great Danes (8-4) in a rebound from last week's loss to Rutgers.

No. 7 Georgetown 12, Massachusetts 10: Down by two goals early, the host Hoyas (8-2, 2-0 Eastern College Athletic Conference) put together a four-goal run to take control.

No. 10 Rutgers 10, Penn State 6: The Scarlet Knights (8-3, 1-0 ECAC) got two goals apiece from Matt Apel and Chris Doctor to top the host Nittany Lions (5-6, 0-3) for the first time in 11 years.
