"I'm really proud of our team's effort tonight," said Princeton coach Cara Morey. "They put together a solid three periods and executed the game plan perfectly. They played disciplined and won their individual bottles. It was a total team effort from our forwards through our defense and her goaltending. We will enjoy this tonight and move on to St. Lawrence tomorrow."
