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.

NCAA Lacrosse: Cornell Men’s Lacrosse Attacker Rob Pannell Named “2013 USILA Lt. Raymond J. Enners Award” As Oustanding Lacrosse Player


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.”

“2013 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships”: Cornell Men’s Lacrosse Dominates #3 Ohio State 16-6 On May 18 To Advance To Final Four


Cornell Men's Lacrosse 16-6 Win over Ohio State 2013 NCAA Lacrosse Championships

The Cornell men’s lacrosse dominated in every facet of the game and advanced to the program’s fourth NCAA Final Four in the last eight years with a 16-6 victory over No. 3 Ohio State on Saturday afternoon at Maryland’s Byrd Stadium. The Big Red improved to 14-3, while OSU’s season ends at 13-4.
Senior attackmen Steve Mock scored a career-high seven goals, matching a Cornell record for individual goals in an NCAA tournament game, and classmate Rob Pannell one-upped him with eight points (two goals, six assists) to lead an offense that scored 16 goals in the first three quarters in exceeding its efficient production in its first round win over Maryland in the same stadium the week before.
Connor Buczek had three goals and two assists, senior goalkeeper AJ Fiore made 10 saves and junior faceoff man Doug Tesoriero won 16-of-24 to seemingly give the Cornell offense every possession. The Big Red held decisive advantages in shots (37-20), ground balls (39-28), saves (10-8), faceoffs (16-10) and caused turnovers (12-8). It went 1-of-1 on the extra man and held an Ohio State team that entered the day leading the country in 50 percent efficiency on man-up to an 0-for-4 day.
The defense had another huge day in front of Fiore, with Jason Noble (three caused turnovers) and Thomas Keith (three caused turnovers, six ground balls) leading the way. Keith in particular seemed to be all over the field from start to finish. Fiore was outstanding himself, adding five ground ball wins and two caused turnovers to his 10-save effort.
The game was the polar opposite of the last meeting between the two teams in the NCAA tournament. The Buckeyes scored first when their goalie went the length of the field and scored and were off and running en route to a 15-7 victory during the first round in 2008. This time, scoring came early and often for attackmen – the ones wearing red.
Midway through the fourth quarter Ohio State took its 16th shot of the game, matching the Big Red’s 16 goals. It was that type of game for the Big Red, who executed every part of the gameplan flawlessly.
Cornell will meet the winner of tomorrow’s game between No. 2 Notre Dame and No. 7 Duke on Saturday, May 25 at either noon or 3 p.m. at Philadelphia’s Franklin Financial Field.
