Highlights: Cornell 16 Albany 9

The game before Albany spent 30 hours traveling home.

Not great filming so be sure to watch in 720p HD to have any idea what’s happening on the field.

In freezing rain and snowy conditions, the No. 13 Cornell men’s lacrosse team upset No. 8 Albany at SMU’s Ford Field in Dallas at the seventh annual Patriots Cup. After trailing 3-1 midway through the first quarter, the Big Red went on a 10-2 run to take control of the game en-route to the decisive victory.

Tough break traveling to Dallas and still having to play in the cold.

Connor Buczek decided to have an afternoon. He tallied 5 markers and helped on another. Buczek now has 15 goals 3 assists for the 3-1 Big Red who have averaged 16.33 goals a game since their 6 goal performance in a loss to Syracuse. Buczek scored three times against Cuse.

Lyle Thompson was a little more subdued with 2 and 2.

In case you didn’t know, Albany was forced to take a bus back home instead of a flight due to travel conditions. Check out their Twitter which documented the entire journey.
