Princeton ties 2012 win record with win against Santa Clara

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Matching its 2012 record with a 14-game season opening winning streak, No. 8 Princeton topped No. 18 Santa Clara 14-11 to sweep the Harvard Invitational.

The 14 consecutive victories match the fourth-longest win streak in program history and Princeton improves to 4-0 on the year versus top-20 opponents with the win against SCU.

Similar to their first two games at the tournament, the Tiger offense quickly set the tone and pace to build a 7-4 halftime advantage.

Down 10-6 entering the fourth quarter, the Broncos attempted a late run and finished the game outscoring Princeton 5-4.

Multi-goal efforts applied to all six Tiger goal scorers, led by junior Ashley Hatcher and sophomore Diana Murphy’s hat tricks. Hatcher was a perfect 3-for-3 on attempts and had an assist.

Seniors Molly McBee and Katie Rigler posted three assists apiece, serving as team highs, with McBee also notching a pair of goals and a steal. Freshman Morgan Hallock contributed two goals, an assist and a steal, while junior Taylor Dunstan added two goals and an assist.

In just shy of four full quarters, sophomore goalie Ashleigh Johnson amassed 10 saves and a shutout second quarter.

The second half of the regular season will send the Tigers next to Southern California for an eight-game slate.
