Stanford Women’s Lacrosse Opens 2-Game Road Trip Vs Cornell March 25; Notre Dame On March 29


For the second time this month, Stanford heads to the East Coast for a two-game road trip. The first was marked by a pair of overtime victories against ranked teams. This one should be difficult as well for the No. 13 Cardinal, which plays at Cornell on Tuesday at No. 6 Notre Dame on Saturday in a rematch of last year’s NCAA first round contest. Notre Dame represents the highest ranked team on Stanford’s schedule this year. Stanford returned 11 starters and 96 percent of its goals from last year’s team that advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. Stanford opened with two home victories before failing to protect a five-goal lead in a 16-15 overtime loss to Vanderbilt. However, Stanford has since won four straight, including a pair of road overtime victories over No. 11 Towson and No. 14 Georgetown. * * * Tuesday’s Opponent, Cornell: The Big Red is 4-3 after winning four of its first five and then dropping its past two games. Cornell is coming off a 10-6 season in which the Big Red placed fourth in the Ivy League with a 4-3 record. Lindsay Toppe leads the team in goals with 22, and Emily Tripodi has 18 assists.  The Stanford-Cornell Series: Cornell leads the all-time series, 6-2. This is their first meeting since 2008 when visiting Stanford lost, 13-9. All the previous meetings took place between 1999-2008. This will be the first in the series for Amy Bokker, who took over as Stanford’s coach in 2009. Cornell is 3-0 against the Cardinal in Ithaca, but Stanford has won two of the past three meetings. * * * Saturday’s Opponent, Notre Dame: The Irish (8-3, 1-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference) are led by freshman Cortney Fortunato, who has 28 goals and 10 assists. The team’s only losses are to teams ranked Nos. 1, 2, and 5 in the current IWLCA poll -- all members of Notre Dame’s new conference, the ACC. Senior Margaret Smith leads the ACC in caused turnovers, with 2.00 per game. The Stanford-Notre Dame  Series: Notre Dame leads the all-time series, 9-5. The teams met twice last year, including in the first round of the NCAA tournament in Evanston, Ill. Stanford won 8-7 on Hannah Farr’s free-position goal with four seconds left in frigid conditions. In the 2013 opener at Stanford, Notre Dame won 12-10. The teams have played four times in the past three years, with the teams splitting 2-2. Except for 2010, the teams have played annually since 2002. In games at Notre Dame, the Irish lead 3-2. Stanford most recent victory at Notre Dame was in 2005, by a 6-5 score.

NCAA Lacrosse: Cornell Men’s Lacrosse Sr. Attacker Rob Pannell Named 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy Winner As Nation’s Top Lacrosse Player


Cornell Men's Lacrosse Rob Pannell 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy Winner

Rob Pannell has been named the winner of the 2013 Tewaaraton Trophy, the premier award in collegiate lacrosse, in a ceremony held this evening at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. He becomes the Big Red’s second recipient of the award, joining Max Seibald ’09, and Cornell is now one of four schools to boast multiple Tewaaraton Trophy winners (Duke, Syracuse, UVA).
“It’s a tremendous honor to win such a prestigious award and to be the second Cornellian to win along with my best friend Max Seibald,” said Pannell. “This award really belongs to my team, especially the senior class. It speaks volumes about the great team we had this year and to the success that we had. Without them I would not have received this award tonight. I couldn’t be happier to represent Cornell University and the Cornell Lacrosse family and need to thank everyone that has helped along the way!”
The award is the latest in a long list for Pannell, who was recently named the winner of the USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award, for the Outstanding DI Player of the Year, as well as the Ivy League Player of the Year. He is the first-ever three-time Ivy League Player of the Year in men’s lacrosse and just the fourth player in the history of Division I college lacrosse to be named conference player of the year three times during their career.
The all-time NCAA Division I career points leader (354), Pannell became one of just four Cornell players to earn All-American honors four times during their career when the teams were announced last week. A two-time Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, he has been named first-team All-American for the past three seasons, after earning a third-team selection as a freshman. Pannell is also just the third men’s lacrosse player in the history of the Ivy League to be named a four-time first-team All-Ivy selection.
One of the greatest to ever play the game at Cornell, Pannell has proven to be one of the most consistent players in the country, having registered at least one point in all 72 games of his career. He capped his senior season by ranking third in the nation in points per game (5.67), third overall in assists per game (3.06), and 14th overall in goals per game (2.61).
Pannell finished the 2013 campaign with 102 points, just three off the school record, set by Mike French in 1976. His 55 assists during the season are good for fourth overall in Cornell history, while his 47 goals rank 10th best in a single season.

Duke Men's Lacrosse vs Cornell 2013 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championships

Sophomore goalkeeper Kyle Turri tallied a career-high 16 saves as Duke earned a spot in the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse championship game with a thrilling 16-14 victory over Cornell Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field. The title game appearance marks the fourth in program history and second under head coach John Danowski.
“For us once again it was a team victory,” said Danowski. “A lot of guys making plays. I think it was nine different people scored goals, eight different people had assists. Greg DeLuca scored a goal. It was a short stick d‑middie, Billy Connors hits a pole. You know, a lot of people that really had a lot to do with today’s victory and that has been certainly our MO all year is that it’s a total team concept, and we were delighted with the effort of our guys for 60 minutes.”
Duke improves to 15-5 on the season, while Cornell finishes the 2013 campaign with a 14-4 record. The Blue Devils are 13-1 in their previous 14 outings.
“Early on it took me a while to get settled in, but I felt like I was seeing the ball well today,” said Turri. “They were giving a lot of low‑angle shots. Our defense was on their hands early, and I was pretty happy about getting my saves up.”
The Big Red and Blue Devils traded goals in the opening seven minutes, but it was Cornell rattling off four of the game’s next five goals to take a 5-2 lead early in the second quarter. Duke trailed 3-1 after the opening 15 minutes with the Blue Devils’ lone goal coming from Jake Tripucka.
Duke pulled within one, 3-2, before Cornell responded with two unanswered for its largest lead of the afternoon at 5-2 with 10:17 to play in the half. The Blue Devils responded in like fashion with a 5-1 over the final 9:30 to take a 7-6 lead into the locker room.
Josh Dionne started the run with a highlight-reel behind-the-back goal to make it 5-3 and senior captain Josh Offit got on the board for the first time of the afternoon three minutes later with a laser to make it 5-4.
The third quarter was all Blue Devils with a 7-0 run in the first 13 minutes to stretch the lead to 14-6. Scoring from Duke came from usual and unusual suspects with Matheis and David Lawson adding tallies, while Greg DeLuca netted his first career NCAA Tournament goal. However, Cornell’s Rob Pannell sparked a 6-0 scoring burst, registering three of his five goals to bring the Big Red within two at 14-12 with eight minutes to play in the fourth quarter.

Cornell Men's Lacrosse Attacker Rob Pannell USILA Player of the Year

For the second time in his career, Cornell senior Rob Pannell has been named the USILA’s Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award as the Outstanding Men’s Lacrosse Player in Division I. He becomes the fifth two-time winner of the award and will lead the Big Red into the NCAA semifinals this weekend in Philadelphia, Pa.
Pannell joins a who’s who of lacrosse greats to take home the trophy twice in a career – Larry Quinn, Johns Hopkins (1984, 1985); Gary Gait, Syracuse (1988, 1990); Casey Powell, Syracuse (1997, 1998); Matt Danowski, Duke (2007, 2008).
Pannell, a two-time Tewaaraton Trophy finalist, has been named a first-team All-American in each of his past three seasons after earning a third-team selection as a freshman in 2009. He joins Paul Schimoler ’89, Ryan McClay ’03 and Max Seibald ’09 as the only Big Red men’s lacrosse players to earn four All-American honors during his career. Earlier this season, he became the first-ever three-time Ivy League Player of the Year in men’s lacrosse and just the fourth player in the history of Division I college lacrosse to be named conference player of the year three times during their career. He enters championship weekend with the NCAA career scoring lead within reach. He needs six points to match Danowski’s record of 343 points and seven points to break the record.
In his final campaign on East Hill, Pannell has matched or exceeded his career season highs with 53 assists, 42 goals and 95 points, just 10 points off the school single-season record. He has registered at least one point in a school-record 71 straight contests and has registered at least three points in 25 consecutive games. Pannell has registered at least three assists in 12-of-17 contests this season, handing out a season-high six assists last weekend against Ohio State in the NCAA quarterfinals. Pannell was named Ivy League Player of the Week four times during the season. A three-year Cornell team captain, he has led his team to a 56-15 overall record (21-3 Ivy League), four Ivy League titles, three Final Four appearances and a spot in the 2009 national championship game.

It is the best two-game  stretch since the defense allowed 14 goals in thrashings of Siena and Dartmouth  on April 26 and 30, respectively.

Coach Ben DeLuca said the defense’s strength is not limited to one area.

“I think we play with a good amount of tenacity,” he said during a conference  call Tuesday morning. “Our guys are tough, and they work extremely hard. I think  we have a good amount of team speed. I think that’s one of our strengths on the  defensive end. I also think we’re very versatile. I think we have some guys that  can play up at the midfield, between the lines, and we also have guys that can  play down low. … And intelligence. I think when we’re playing at our best, we  play a very intelligent, disciplined brand of lacrosse.”

Cornell will face a tough task in the Blue Devils, who have scored 24 goals  in two NCAA tournament contests. But Noble is optimistic about the defense’s  chances.
