Princeton got on the board in the 50th minute when Lauren Lazo fired a shot off the post and Melissa Downey was there to put it in the net, giving the Tigers a lead they never relinquished.

 

• Princeton finishes the season at 3-0 against the Patriot League, also with wins over Army and Lehigh. The Tigers are unbeaten in nine straight games against Patriot League teams with the last loss coming in 2010 at American.

• Princeton improved its series lead over Colgate to 6-3-2. The teams first met in 1989. Princeton is unbeaten in its last three against the Raiders, winning in 2008 in Hamilton and tying last year in Princeton.

• Princeton's 32 shots were the most since the team also had 32 against Francis Marion on Oct. 10, 2011. The last time Princeton had more than 32 shots was when it outshot Syracuse 34-2 on Oct. 27, 2004. It was the most shots Princeton has had on the road since also shooting 32 times at Hartford on Sept. 26, 2004.

Gabriella Guzman gave Princeton its first penalty-kick goal of the season on the team's third try. The Tigers last had a PK goal on Sept. 29, 2009 at Fairfield by Melissa Seitz '10.

• Tyler Lussi increased her lead as Princeton's top scorer with her seventh goal of the season. Seven is the most goals for a freshman since Diana Matheson '08 had seven in 2004.

• One game after making her collegiate debut, rookie Hannah Winner had her first collegiate start. She's allowed two goals in 135 minutes of play, making two saves.

• With 11 shots on goal against the Raiders, Princeton has had at least 10 shots on goal in three games this season.
