Virginia (Michael Rhoads ’13, Jason Murphy ’13, Brandon Johnson ’14, Jack FalCUVak ‘14) 15

Cornell (Will Joyce ’10, Marshall Peters ’13, Jack Bolen ‘14) 14








Virginia scored with 2:54 left in the game to go up 15-9, seemingly salting the game away. Cornell then went on a frantic scoring binge, scoring 5 goals in a span of just under 2 minutes. With 34 seconds left, UVA held a mere one goal lead and Cornell held all the momentum. It came down to one more face-off and Cornell had dominated face-offs the whole game. Jason Murphy got the win, pushed the ball back to his LSM who scooped up the ground ball and fed the ball downfield to allow the ‘Hoos to run out the clock.

Marshall Peter’s wing play (4 ground balls) on face-offs contributed to Cornell’s dominance at the X and he scored a goal for the Big Red as well. Jack Falk took one shot for UVA and took a semi-fortuitous penalty which led to a short-handed goal for UVA.

The field and the stands were filled with Landon partisans, including several young alums and Mark and Trish Paoletta, parents of former Landon and Cornell standout Joe Paoletta who is now a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marines.
