After Levine scored for a 15-13 lead, Urso tried one last dash. He was met at midfield by Cornell's attackmen, Levine, French and McEneaney, who simultaneously belted him to the ground, where he stayed. McEneaney flipped the ball to French, who put in his seventh goal of the game to tie a tournament record.
An on-the-field awards ceremony followed the game. Moran had spent the week trying to keep himself under control, or "down on the farm," as he says, but now his Irish got the better of him. Seizing the microphone, he raised a single finger in the air and shouted, "Cornell, baby, we're No. 1."
