Princeton's Austin Sims scores six goals in upset vs. No. 3 JHU

  Austin Sims' career day led the Tigers past No. 3 Johns Hopkins Friday.

Princeton junior midfielder Austin Sims entered Friday's game with two goals in two games this season. Hours later, he left the field with quadruple that total.

Sims tallied a career-high six goals in Princeton's 18-7 upset over No. 3 Johns Hopkins on the Tigers' home turf. Sims was one of seven different Princeton goal scorers in the rout, as the Tigers moved to 3-1 for the season.

Two of Sims' goals came in the second quarter amidst a 7-0 Princeton run that quickly put the game away. His goal of the day, however, came in the opening frame when he fell to the ground, got up, spun through two defenders and fired a rising shot past the JHU goalie for the first goal of the game.

Sims' previous single-game career-high in goals came against Yale last season when he netted four. 

Friday's victory marked the first time Princeton topped Johns Hopkins at home since 2001.
