Box Score: No. 4 Princeton 4, No. 13 Wake Forest 2

Despite conceding the early advantage, four goals from senior Kathleen Sharkey helped guide the No. 4 Princeton field hockey team to a 4-2 victory at No. 13 Wake Forest Sunday afternoon in Winston-Salem, N.C.

The Demon Deacons put the Tigers in a hole two minutes into play behind a Krysta Wangerin goal, but Sharkey would be there to even things up. The Princeton striker converted a penalty corner served up from Julia Reinprecht and Katie Reinprecht to knot the score, 1-1, at 8:31.

Wake Forest would take control again off a Lizzie Rae penalty corner goal at 12:03, but it would be the last time the Demon Deacons would hold an advantage in the contest as Sharkey was there again to tie things up.

Sharkey would find an opening on frame in front of the goal to make it a 2-2 game in the 15th minute.

After halftime it was all Princeton, as a Sharkey-led offensive attack lifted the Tigers to their second victory in as many games on the early season.

In the 42nd minute, she sent in the eventual game-winner off a shot from the side of the goal, but the forward was not done scoring yet. Ten minutes later she outdid her second consecutive hat trick performance with a fourth goal on a direct line shot in front of the goal.

Princeton tallied a 20-12 shot differential on Wake Forest (1-2), while the Demon Deacons held a slight advantage on penalty corners, 8-7.

Tiger goalie Christina Maida made two saves in 70 minutes of work.

Princeton (2-0) will close out its three-game season opening road swing in University Park, Pa. with a Thursday, Sept. 6 clash with No. 9 Penn State at 6 p.m. The Tigers then open a three-game home stanza of their own, hosting their home opener on Sunday, Sept. 9 versus Richmond at 12 noon. The game will also mark Princeton's first game at the newly constructed Bedford Field.
