ITHACA, N.Y. – The No. 3/4 Cornell University men’s lacrosse team erased a four-goal deficit to defeat No. 13/17 Harvard, 13-12, this afternoon on Schoellkopf Field.

Despite not holding a lead for more than 44 minutes during the contest, the Big Red managed to take the 12-11 advantage early in the fourth quarter and Andrew MacDonald blocked a last second Crimson shot as Cornell hung on for the victory.

Max Seibald and Chris Finn both registered career highs with four goals apiece to lead the Big Red, while freshman Rob Pannell tallied five assists to break his own Cornell rookie record.

Ryan Hurley chipped in three goals and John Glynn and Rocco Romero added one goal apiece.

The Big Red is back in action on Tuesday as it travels to Syracuse to take on the No. 2/2 Orange at the Carrier Dome on April 7 at 7 p.m.
