Box Score

The No. 2 Princeton field hockey team extended its winning ways by defeating Ivy rival Dartmouth, 4-1, to improve to 5-0 on the year. The Tigers saw contributions throughout the lineup on a gritty defensive-minded afternoon at Bedford Field.

Senior tri-captain Kathleen Sharkey continued to add to her offensive numbers Saturday, tallying a pair of goals and an assist, while classmate and fellow captain Katie Reinprecht had a pair of assists.

In the game, Princeton held a 27-5 shot differential over Dartmouth, in addition to a 13-4 advantage on penalty corners. The Tigers sent in 15 shots in the first half, seeing return on only one in the sixth minute of play. Kelsey Byrne served in a penalty corner and found Reinprecht at the top of the circle, who put a touch on the ball and found an open Sharkey to give Princeton a 1-0 lead.

Following halftime, the Tigers remained in control of the game and saw their offense take off. At 38:54, Sharkey grabbed a deflected shot and found Michelle Cesan to put in the eventual game-winner.

Less than two minutes later, in a very similar scenario, freshman Teresa Benvenuti picked up a loose deflected ball and dished her first career assist to Sharkey to improve Princeton's lead to 3-0 at 40:17.

The Tigers were not done yet, as for the third time in the half, Princeton managed to take control of a deflected ball inside the circle. This time Reinprecht picked up the ball bouncing off Dartmouth's goalie Jenna Stearns and passed it to Molly Goodman. Goodman was able to put away her first goal of the year at 51:01.

The Big Green did manage to break up goalie Christina Maida and the Tiger defense's clean sheet with a goal in the 58th minute. Janine Leger sent in a penalty corner and Lisa Masini was there to finish.

Maida finished with a save, while Dartmouth's Stearns had seven.

The Tigers return to the pitch tomorrow, Sunday, Sept. 16 to face Delaware at 1 p.m.
