COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Rob Pannell had four goals and three assists, Steve Mock also scored four goals, and Cornell surprised No. 6 seed Maryland 16-8 Sunday in the NCAA men’s lacrosse tournament.

Cornell (13-3) never trailed. The Big Red led 6-4 at halftime, 10-6 after three quarters and pulled away in the fourth quarter behind Mock, who scored two straight goals to make it 14-7 with 6:58 left.

Goalie A.J. Fiore stopped 12 shots for Cornell, an at-large entrant from the Ivy League.

The Big Red will next play the winner of the Ohio State-Towson game, which was held later Sunday.

John Haus had two goals for Maryland (10-4).

Pannell has 40 goals and a team-high 47 assists, and Mock leads the Big Red with 52 goals.
