SUNY Cortland men's lacrosse team storms into NCAA Final Four

Cortland State advances to Final Four

The Cortland State men's lacrosse team continued their dominance in the NCAA tournament Wednesday night, defeating Western New England University 12-7.

After receiving a bye in the first round, Cortland defeated Aurora 14-8. On Wednesday, the Red Dragons outscored the Golden Bears 7-2 in the second half of the NCAA Quarterfinals to advance to the National Semifinals.

Ten different players scored for Cortland, including one spectacular behind-the-back bounce shot from ES-M grad Mike Cummings in the fourth quarter.

"We have a lot of experienced guys who've played in semifinal games...a national championship game..and that experience paid off today," Cortland State head coach Steve Beville says.

Cortland improves to 19-0 on the season and will face RIT (who the Red Dragons beat 12-11 in double overtime in March) in the national semifinals on Sunday in Cortland.
