Box Score

PRINCETON (9/23/12) - The Princeton and Syracuse field hockey teams have played several exciting and close games over the past five years and Sunday proved no exception as the nation's second and third-ranked teams traded chances before the second-ranked Orange emerged with a 2-0 victory over the Tigers at Bedford Field.

The first half had a more defensive feel as chances were limited for both teams. Syracuse outshot the Tigers 5-3 in the period and had the only two corner chances but each team managed two shots on goal in what was an evenly played first 35 minutes. Katie Reinprecht had Princeton's first chance in the game's 11th minute while Kelsey Millman had a chance stopped by Christina Maida in the 15th minute.

The Tigers garnered their first corner one minute into the second half and had another chance within a minute but could not manage a shot on either chance. Syracuse quickly turned play to the opposite end of the field and got its third corner of the game, but Maida made consecutive stops on shots by Liz McInerney and Millman to keep the game scoreless.

The Orange would break through on its fifth corner of the game in the 56th minute as Leonie Geyer's direct corner blast beat Maida. Jordan Page and Kelsey Millman assisted on the game-winning goal. Kathleen Sharkey had two shots saved following corners following the goal, but the Tigers couldn't cash in and Syracuse stretched the lead in the 65th minute on an Emma Russell goal. Russell got the ball in the midfield and carried it into the Princeton circle where she placed a shot inside the far post.

Syracuse outshot Princeton 16-10 in the game, while the Tigers outcornered Syracuse 6-5. Maida finished the game with eight saves while Leann Stiver had six saves for the Orange.

Princeton dropped to 7-1 with the loss. The Tigers visit Columbia next Friday night.
