ITHACA, N.Y. – The Cornell field hockey team upset No. 4 Louisville, 2-0, on Sunday, October 23. The Big Red were led by goals from Julia Darmo and Claire Jones. The win marks the biggest upset in program history with highest ranked-opponent win in the 50 years of Cornell field hockey.

Cornell grabbed a goal just four minutes into the contest when Darmo received a direct penalty corner service from Jones. She then dribbled into the arc to rocket a shot into the back of the net. The Big Red allowed just one shot from Louisville in the first quarter of play.
