Rachel Saiontz and the Tigers will play in the ECAC final for the second straight year.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- For the second straight year, Yale and Princeton will meet in the women's tennis ECAC Championship final, this time with Yale getting the home-court advantage.

The 43rd-ranked Tigers got past No. 38 Brown 4-3 Saturday afternoon to set up Sunday's 2 p.m. match. Yale will enter Sunday's match as the nation's No. 25 team at 5-1 overall, having faced five nationally-ranked foes and defeating four of them.

Princeton clinched the doubles point with wins by Hilary Bartlett and Lindsay Graff at first doubles and Monica Chow and Katherine Flanigan at third, with Katie Goepel's and Rachel Saiontz's match at second singles being ended early as the point was clinched.

The teams traded singles wins until Katherine Flanigan won one of two matches to go three sets, prevailing 7-5, 4-6, 6-4 over Laura Wiley at fourth singles.
