Men's lacrosse Game of the Week: No. 19 Yale vs. No. 14 Cornell

May 04, 2012

No. 19 Yale (9-4) vs. No. 14 Cornell (9-3)

Friday, 5 p.m.

Outlook: This semifinal in the Ivy League tournament, hosted by Princeton, is a rematch of the March 17 meeting in which the Big Red outlasted the Bulldogs, 8-7. At that time, Cornell was thought to be a lock for the NCAA tournament. But with back-to-back losses to Brown and Princeton, the Big Red — the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament — might need to win the tourney to guarantee a berth in the NCAA tournament. No. 3 seed Yale has won its past seven contests. The Bulldogs also boast Division I's second-best faceoff specialist in sophomore Dylan Levings (65.2 percent on 146-for-224).
