Post-Game Interview with Rose Alleva and Jeff Kampersal

PRINCETON, N.J. (11/1/13) - No. 3 Cornell scored five goals in the first period but the Princeton women's hockey didn't give up. The Tigers clawed their way back in the game scoring four goals in the second period, but couldn't get the equalizer as the Big Red win 5-4.

The Big Red scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the game but poured it on in the final 1:42 scoring three straight goals.

The second period was all Princeton. The Tigers came storming out of the locker room as if the first period never happened, scoring three goals in the first three minutes.

Sophomore Jaimie McDonell got things started when she scored on the doorstep at 2:08. Senior Gabie Figueroa sent a pass from the point to freshman Cassidy Tucker on the left side. Tucker delievered the puck in front of net and McDonell capitalized.

It was Figueroa again that set up the Tigers second goal, just 11 seconds later. Figuera pushed the puck into the zone to classmate Denna Laing along the right boards. Laing skated in and passed to senior Olivia Mucha in the slot and buried the goal.

Senior defender Rose Alleva struck 39 seconds later. Freshman Hilary Lloyd had the initial shot and the rebound was scooped up by McDonell who saw Alleva open on the left side for the score.

Junior Ashley Holt was hot on the other end as she made a save on a penalty shot by Jessica Campbell at 3:32 of the second period. Holt finished the game with 20 saves, zero goals allowed in 39 minutes. She replaced sophomore Kimberly Newell who started the game and allowed all five first-period goals.

Princeton got within one at 10:17 on a 5x3 power-play goal by junior Ali Pankowski. Mucha and Alleva earned the assists.

Lauren Slebodnick made 19 saves for the Big Red who improve to 5-0 on the season and 3-0 in the ECAC.

Princeton now 1-2 overall and in the league, host Colgate tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m.
