As the Ivy League heads into its final two weekends, the Princeton men's soccer team hosts its final home game of the season against Penn Saturday at 7 p.m. on Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium.

The Tigers stand fourth in a competitive Ivy League behind leader Brown (4-0-1, 13 points), Cornell and Dartmouth (both 4-1, 12 points). Five of the Ivy's eight teams are in the top 100 in RPI, including Brown (21), Cornell (31), Dartmouth (67), Princeton (69) and Harvard (97).

Brothers Thomas and Matt Sanner co-lead the Tigers with three goals apiece, and Thomas Sanner has the team lead with 11 points. Seth MacMillan has gotten the start in every Ivy League game this season, and he hasn't allowed more than one goal to any Ivy opponent.

Princeton's last seven games, including two ties, have been decided by one or fewer goals. All but one of Princeton's games this season have been decided by two or fewer goals.

The Quakers enter with a similar run of close matches. While Penn has lost six straight games, five of those losses were by one goal and the other by two goals. After a six-game skid to start the season, one that saw four one-goal finishes, Penn won back-to-back games over Fairleigh Dickinson and Rider at Princeton's home tournament.

For Penn, the trio of Stephen Baker, Travis Cantrell (six each) and Duke Lacroix (five) have 17 of the team's 24 goals, and Max Kurtzman has played more than three-quarters of the team's 1,278 minutes in goal with a 2.27 GAA.

Princeton also added a game to replace the one lost to Hurricane Sandy this past Tuesday. Princeton will head to Fairfield (7-8-1) for a game Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. The Stags' final MAAC weekend was canceled for this Friday and Sunday due to effects from the hurricane.
