Final stats

Princeton and Cornell were playing another high scoring one, with 10 third-quarter goals and the prospect of another massive fourth-quarter explosion, just like the last meeting between the two, in the last year's Ivy League tournament semifinal.

Then the goalies decided they'd had enough.

Cornell goalie Christian Knight made six of his 16 saves in the fourth quarter to preserve a 12-10 Big Red win over Princeton in front of 4,500 at Bethpage High School in the fourth "Battle of Bethpage." Princeton's Eric Sanschagrin joined Knight as a game MVP after he made 13 saves for the Tigers.

The loss dropped Princeton to 7-6, while Cornell earned a share of the Ivy League title with Harvard with the win. The Ivy League tournament will be held in Cambridge beginning Friday.

Princeton and Cornell met for the 76th time, and only once in the first 73 did both teams reach double figures. They did it twice last year, including Princeton's 14-13 overtime win in the Ivy tournament on Kip Orban's overtime goal, and they both reached double figures before the end of the third.

The third quarter was a track meet, with 10 combined goals - including a goal for each in the first 14 seconds after intermission - on 24 shots. When it ended, it looked like another shootout was in store for the fourth quarter. Instead, Knight and Sanschagrin were both spectacular in the final 15 minutes, which featured just one goal, by Matt Donovan with 8:27 to go.

The teams would combine for 17 fourth-quarter shots, but that goal would be the only one. The goalies combined for nine saves with the one goal allowed.

Princeton was led by Tucker Shanley, who had a career-best four goals, and freshan Zach Currier, who had two.

Tom Schreiber had a goal, giving him 30 for the year and 200 points for his career. Orban had a goal as well, giving him one in 26 straight games.
