After a kill by Woolridge gave Princeton match point, at 24-16, Yale rattled off the next five points. Mattaliano ended the run on an assist from Woolridge to secure the Princeton victory, 25-21.

Overall, Peterkin led the Tigers with 12 kills and 12 digs, while Mattaliano had 11 kills and 11 digs. Miller finished the match with 32 assists. Princeton is now 6-9 on the season and 2-3 in league play.
