The 15th-ranked Princeton men's water polo team employed a second half surge to propel past Johns Hopkins, 9-6, Sunday in Baltimore, Md.

After going down 4-2 in the first quarter, Princeton worked to respond and prevent suffering its second consecutive loss.

Both squads went into halftime squared, 5-5, and then it was all Princeton.

The Tigers wrapped up the contest riding a 4-1 streak to push past the Blue Jays and improve to 8-4, 2-1 Southern on the year.

Freshman Alex Gow took over duties in the cage, tallying 11 saves in his second win of his young career.

Kayj Shannon scored a team-leading two goals, and Billy Tifft notched two assists and grabbed three steals in the contest.

Princeton next heads to Southern California to play four games over the weekend, beginning with top-ranked USC on Friday, Sept. 28 at 3 p.m.

No. 15 Princeton: 2 - 3 - 1 - 3 - 9
Johns Hopkins: 4 - 1 - 0 - 1 - 6

Goals: Buchbinder 1, Butler 1, Hoffenberg 1, Ruth 1, Shannon 2, Wachtell 1, Weber 1
Assists: Buchbinder 1, Hoffenberg 1, Tifft 2
Steals: Butler 1, Donahue 1, Hoffenberg 1, Kuprenas 1, Tifft 3, Wachtell 1, Weber 1
