Princeton opened play at the CWPA Southern Division Championship Saturday morning with a 16-2 win over George Washington and advanced to the Southerns final with a 13-4 win over Harvard in the evening.

In pursuit of their third straight Southerns title, the Tigers will face the winner of the B bracket, Brown. 

Princeton opened the George Washington game with a 14-0 lead through three quarters and with the Colonials unable to score on Tiger sophomore goalkeeper Ashleigh Johnson. Nine players scored for Princeton, with Hannah Lapkin leading the team in the opener with four goals.

In the second game, Princeton rolled up a 12-2 lead by halftime and never let Harvard back in the contest. A game after going unscored upon, goalkeeper Johnson allowed only two goals, both in the second quarter after Princeton had built a 5-0 lead.

If the Tigers can sweep the weekend, which will continue with Sunday's 1 p.m. final, it would mark just the second time (2004-06) since the program began in 1997 that Princeton has won three straight Southern championships.
