Colorado College vs. Cornell: Tigers fall in non-conference game, 2-0

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Tigers struggle to generate offense in shut out on the road.

The Colorado College Tigers dropped the opening game of a two-game series against the Cornell Big Red, 2-0 on Friday night in Ithaca, New York.

Cornell stymied the Tigers all night as Colorado College failed to apply much pressure on the Big Red defense. Not only did the Tigers fail to score in the game, but they were only able to generate 19 shots on goal. Cornell junior goaltender Andy Iles turned away all 19 shots to maintain the shutout for the Big Red.

A pair of power play opportunities for Cornell proved to be the difference, as senior forward John Esposito scored twice in power play situations to lead the Big Red. Espisito's first goal cam at 19:54 in the second period, and he later capped off the scoring in the third period to put the game away for Cornell.

Colorado College goalie Josh Thorimbert held up well in the net despite the loss, denying 26 of Cornell's 28 shots on goal for the game.

The loss dropped the Tigers record to 3-2 for the season. The two teams will play again on Saturday night at 5:00 p.m. CT.
