PRINCETON, NJ (2/9/13) - The No. 4-ranked Cornell women's hockey team proved too much as Princeton fell 4-1 on Saturday, Feb. 9 at Hobey Baker Rink.

Newell kept the Tigers alive with 29 saves in the first two periods, as Cornell outshot Princeton 30-13 in the first 40 minutes.

Less than two minutes into the third period the Tigers evened the game with a goal by freshman Cristin Shanahan. Junior Gabie Figueroa skated down the right side and fed Shanahan who was on the doorstep for the goal.

Jessica Campbell tallied the go-ahead goal at 8:34 and Lauriana Rougeau pushed Cornell's lead to 3-1 with a goal off a rebound with 1:41 to play.

Princeton pull Newell for the extra attacker with 45 seconds remaining but the the Big Red gained control of the puck and Jenner sailed the puck into the empty net to seal the win with 29 seconds left on the clock.
