Senior Caitlin Blosser scored the game winner as the Tigers win their second consecutive game.

Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (9/9/12) - Senior Caitlin Blosser's goal in the 53rd minute was all the Princeton women's soccer needed on Sunday, Sept. 9 to earn a win over Temple and push its unbeaten streak to three straight.

Sophomore Lauren Lazo set by Blosser's goal as she came streaking up the right flank and sent a cross into the box for the tap.

Princeton did a great job of limiting Temple's chances in the attacking third, allowing just five total shots. The defense made senior Claire Pinciaro's job look easy as the keeper made two stops in her second straight shutout. The Owls first shot on goal came in the waning minutes of the first half, on a long ball from 40 yards out with no one running to make on move on it as Pinciaro scooped it up. She made her second save in the first minute of the second half as Karly O'Toole fired a free kick from 25 yards out that started to drop and Pinciaro had to lift it over the crossbar.

The Tigers had a number of chances to add to its goal total, taking 18 shots in the game, 13 more than their opponent. Freshman Jessica Lee had the first chance 12 minutes in as the Tigers moved the ball around on offense before she fired just wide. In the 35th minute junior defender Kacie Kergides lofted a shot from 30 yards out that just grazed the cross bar, and with 42nd minute a header by junior Erika Hoglund and an excellent cross from senior Jen Hoy was just off target. In the final minute of the first half, Hoy had a header that had to be punched away by goalkeeper Shaunti Kerkhoff, who had a busy afternoon finishing with six saves.

Princeton (2-1-1) heads to California next weekend, Sept. 14-16, where it will take on UCLA on Friday night and UC Irvine on Sunday night.
