PRINCETON, N.J. (11/10/11) - The Princeton men's soccer team will honor and celebrate its seniors when the Tigers host Yale in the final game of the season on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 3 p.m., on Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium

The Class of 2012 includes: Colby Hahn, Antoine Hoppenot, Paolo Iaccarino, Charles Lin, Stephen Park, Manny Sardinha and Zach Wyzgoski.

The game will be web streamed on GoPrincetonTigers.tv for subscribers, and fans can follow live stats free of charge.

Yale leads the 101-year series 42-36-22. The Tigers are unbeaten in the last three meetings, including a 2-1 win at Yale last year that gave Princeton the outright Ivy League title and automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament with a perfect 7-0 record in the league.

Princeton had a three-game unbeaten streak snapped at Penn on Saturday in a 2-1 loss. The Tigers are 5-9-2 overall and 1-4-1 in the Ivy League. Junior Matt Sanner and senior Antoine Hoppenot both sit atop the scoring column with 14 points. Sanner's 14 points come from seven goals, while Hoppenot has a team-best six assists and four goals. Freshman Cameron Porter is inching close to the pair with five goals and two assists for 12 points. Princeton has used two goalkeepers this season, with sophomore Seth MacMillan getting the nod the last three games. He has a 1.26 goals against average and a .647 save percentage.

Yale is 7-7-2 on the season and is fifth in the Ivy League standings with a 3-3 record. The Ellis have lost their last two games by 1-0 scores to Columbia and Brown. Three players are in double digits in scoring led by Peter Jacobson and Brad Rose with 11 points. Jacobson has a team-high five goals while Rose had a team-best five assists and three goals off the bench. Jenner Fox has also scored three goals and adds four assists for 10 points. Goalkeeper Bobby Thalman has been in goal for all by 11 minutes and has a 0.91 GAA, stopping 86 of 101 shots. His save percentage of .851 is the best in the league as he averages more than five saves per game.


Freshman Patrick O'Neil scored from the top of the box early in the second half to snap a tie, and when the Tigers made it stand up the rest of the way, they found themselves in a place that Princeton men's soccer had never before been.

O'Neil's goal gave Princeton a 2-1 win over Yale Saturday afternoon to complete 11th-ranked Princeton's remarkable run through the ivy League at a perfect 7-0-0. The 2010 Tigers became the first men's soccer team in school history to have a perfect Ivy League season.

Princeton dominated play early, and it paid off when Ben Burton headed in a long throw-in from Mark Linville 10 minutes before the half. And then a minute later, the Tigers gave it right back, as an own goal off a clearing attempt knotted the score at 1-1 and left Yale in the rare position of having one goal and no shots to that point.

It stayed 1-1 through the first 16 minutes of the second half, before O'Neil scored his second career goal.

Princeton outshot Yale 14-3, and the Bulldogs didn't attempt a shot after Princeton regained the lead.
