10-27-2012 11:48 AM
ITHACA, N.Y. – John Wells was able to walk off the field a hero. Jeff Mathews, Luke Tasker, Grant Gellatly and an opportunistic defense made sure of it. Wells', who earlier in the day had missed both a field goal and an extra-point kick that looked like it might be the difference in the game late into the fourth quarter, drilled a 23-yard attempt with 50 seconds left in the game to give Cornell a 37-35 shootout victory over Princeton on Saturday afternoon at Schoellkopf Field. With the win, the Big Red improved to 4-3 (2-2 Ivy), while the Tigers suffered their first Ivy League loss to slip to 4-3 (3-1 Ivy).
