• Princeton defeated Lafayette 5-2 Wednesday night in Easton, Pa., in the team's final match before Ivy League play begins Saturday at Yale.

• Princeton improved to 3-3-1 win the win, while Lafayette fell to 3-5-1 with the loss.

• Jen Hoy scored twice in the 13th minute - 24 seconds apart - and again in the 31st minute to give Princeton a 4-0 lead after Erika Hoglund scored first in the fourth minute.

• Lafayette scored in the 39th and 69th minutes around a goal by Princeton's Caitlin Blosser in the 63rd minute.

• Hoy's hat trick is her second of the season. The other one also came against a Patriot League school, Colgate on Sept. 2.
