Final Stats

The final seconds of Princeton's 17-11 loss to Cornell at the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at MetLife Stadium had just ticked away, and now the Tigers were able to look ahead to their next opponent.

Cornell.

For the first time since playing back-to-back games against Rutgers in 1888 and a team called the Berekely Athletics, Princeton will play consecutive games against the same team within a week, with Game 2 against Cornell set for Friday at 8 in Ithaca in the second semifinal of the Ivy League tournament. Yale and Penn will play in the first semifinal, and the winners will play two days later for the Ivy League's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME - Rob Pannell scored the first two goals of the game, leading Cornell to a big lead and himself to a huge afternoon. Pannell would finish with five goals and four assists, of which three goals and two assists came in the first 23 minutes of the game, during which time the Big Red jumped out to an 8-1 lead. From that point, Princeton outscored Cornell 10-9, but it was too late.

OTHER TURNING POINT OF THE GAME - Princeton scored three straight goals to make it 10-6 with six minutes left in the third quarter, and there was plenty of time to get closer. Cornell, though, traded goals with Princeton, who five times would make it a four-goal game, only to have Cornell answer with the next goal all five times.

STAT OF THE GAME - The game marked only the second time in 74 meetings between the schools that both teams reached double figures. The only other time previously was in 2004, when Cornell defeated Princeton 12-11 in overtime.

WHAT THE BOX SCORE DOESN'T TELL YOU - This was Princeton's first loss of the season that wasn't by one goal and the only game this year in which Princeton never led.

HISTORICAL NOTE - Tom Schreiber had two goals and an assist and now has 25 goals and 26 assists for the season. Princeton has had a player have at least 25 goals and 25 assists six times in program history, and two of those 25/25 seasons belong to Schreiber, who had 32 goals and 28 assists last year.

PRINCETON PLAYER OF THE GAME - Mike MacDonald had four goals and an assist, giving him 35 goals and 12 assists for the year.

NOTES - Princeton won 17 of 31 face-offs, including 9 of 15 by Justin Murphy and 7 of 13 by Jake Froccaro ... Kip Orban had his second staight three-goal, four-point game, tying career highs in both ... Princeton is 8-5 and the fourth seed in the Ivy tournament.
