ITHACA, N.Y. – The Harvard women's lacrosse team (8-7, 4-3 Ivy) dropped its final regular season contest of the season, falling on the road to No. 11 Cornell, 13-6.

Katie Muldoon and Julia Glynn led the Harvard offense with two goals apiece. Junior Olivia Gundrum posted 10 saves in net for the Crimson.

The teams traded initial goals, as Glynn scored her first of the game 2:32 into the game to make it 1-1. The Big Red though took control with the next five tallies over the following seven minutes. Marisa Romeo and Muldoon scored over the final 15 minutes of the opening period, but at the intermission, Cornell held an 8-3 advantage.

Cornell continued to keep the momentum in its favor, scoring the first three goals of the second half before Glynn scored on the man-up to make it 11-4. The scoring was limited down the stretch, with Keeley MacAfee and Muldoon netting goals in the final five minutes, as Cornell held off any Harvard charge for the final tally of 13-6.

The Crimson will now wait for the result of Sunday's Yale vs. Penn matchup to determine who it's opponent will be for the first round of the Ivy League Tournament next Friday and which school will serve as the host of the event. A Penn win would give Cornell the top seed and create a rematch Friday at 4 p.m. in Ithaca between the Big Red and Crimson. A Penn loss would give Princeton hosting duties and a first-round matchup with Harvard.
