ABOUT THE BIG RED
• Cornell comes in off a pair of losses, most recently a 2-1 setback Monday at Siena.

A fellow freshman, Evanthia Spyredes, earned the assist on the play for her first collegiate point. • The Big Red split two Friday matches to open its season, first rallying for a 2-1 overtime victory Aug. 24 at St. Bonaventure before a 2-0 setback against Buffalo last Friday. • Cornell started up its 37th varsity season in dramatic fashion, with junior center back Kaili Gregory's golden goal on a free kick from 22 yards in the 100th minute against the Bonnies. • Gregory also set up the Big Red's first goal of the season, making a long pass that led to sophomore midfielder Naomi Jaffe's goal from a near impossible angle in the 65th minute to tie the game. • For a full preview of the Big Red's 2018 season, go to https://cornellbigred.com/news/2018/8/23/outlook-more-goals-the-goal-for-womens-soccer.aspx.
