Yale 37, Cornell 17
Patrick Witt threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in
Yale’s 37-17 win over Cornell in the Ivy league opener for both
teams on Saturday.
Witt completed 24 of 33 passes, including a 5-yard TD toss to
Allen Harris on Yale’s (2-0) first drive of the day and a 13-yard
scoring pass in the third quarter to Cameron Sandquist. Witt, who
went over the 4,000-yard career passing mark, connected with nine
different receivers and Harris enjoyed a career day with eight
catches for 107 yards.
Cornell (1-1), which got 271 passing yards from Jeff Mathews and
95 on the ground from Grant Gellatly, recorded a touchdown and a
field goal to close the gap to 17-10 early in the third, but
couldn’t keep the Yale offense off the field long enough.
Big Red receiver Kurt Ondash grabbed eight passes for 104 yards
in the losing effort.
