Box Score

ITHACA, N.Y. (2/28/14) - No. 6 Cornell rallied from a two-goal deficit to defeat Princeton 3-2 t Lynah Rink on Friday afternoon, taking Game 1 of the ECAC Quarterfinal series.

Princeton (14-12-4) took a 2-0 lead on back-to-back power-play goals within 25 seconds but Cornell (21-5-4) scored three goals in the first nine minutes of the third period to take the lead and the win.

Senior Sally Butler scored the 5x3 goal on a rebound at 7:47. Junior defender Ali Pankowski got the puck across the blue line from senior Rose Alleva and led a shot go from the left point. The puck rang off the near post and Butler capitalized on the weak side.

On the next shift, a blocked shot went to the stick of Pankowski at the point. She traded passes with Butler on the right side before finding freshman Hilary Lloyd at the far post who banked in the goal at 8:12.

Sophomore Kimberly Newell made a number of solid plays. She denied Jessica Campbell on a 1x1 less than a minute later and thwarted a short-handed breakaway by Taylor Woods.
Freshman Paula Voorheis got the start for Cornell, after Lauren Slebodnick was delievered the loss in goal last week. She was kept busy as well, denying Brianne Mahoney's break and shot by Kelsey Koelzer on an odd-man rush.

Jillian Saulnier started the Big Red run at 2:06 of the third with an unassisted backhanded goal. Campbell tied the game 3:17 later on a backdoor feed from Woods. It was Campbell that also scored the game winner at 8:52. Saulnier won the face off back to Alyssa Gagliardi. Gagliardi found Campbell on the wing and she skated in to slip the puck under Newell for the lead.

Princeton pulled Newell for the extra skater but wasn't able to get the equalizer. Butler had Princeton's final chance with a one-timer that stretched Vooheis across the paint.
The teams will meet again tomorrow at 2 p.m. Princeton is in a must-win situation in the best-of-three-series.
