W. Lacrosse Falls to Princeton, 15-6

The Harvard women's lacrosse team continues the search for its first Ivy League win after losing to Princeton 15-6 on Saturday in New Jersey.

The Crimson began the game with a strong offensive performance, including back-to-back goals from senior Allison Harper. Sophomore Leslie Moroz added a tally of her own off of a pass from Sara Burg to give Harvard a 3-0 lead at 26:24.

But Princeton rallied with five unanswered goals, including three tallies within a minute and a half.

After eight minutes of soft defense, the Crimson offense woke up at 17:35 with a goal from sophomore Katie O'Brien. Harvard then exchanged goals with the Tigers to give Princeton a 7-5 lead at the half.

The Tigers put the final nail into the Crimson coffin with a string of seven goals to open the second half of the game.

Senior Lauren Corkery scored off of a pass from Burg with 11 minutes left in the half, but to no avail. Princeton finished the game with another goal at 4:03 to give them the 15-6 blowout.

Goalies Laura Field and Jennie Platt combined for eight saves in the Princeton win.

Princeton freshman goalie Meghan McInnes led the Ivy League with a goals-against-average of 5.60 and was voted the Ivy defensive player of the week two weeks ago, but she did not play against Harvard this weekend.
