Someone's winning streak was going to end Monday night in Philadelphia, and Jen Hoy made sure it wasn't Princeton's.

Less than four minutes into the first overtime period, Hoy broke through the La Salle defense, turned on the speed that her teammates and foes alike have seen so often, and pounded the ball into the wide-open net for a 2-1 win over La Salle.

The Tigers (11-3-1) have now won nine straight matches, heading into Saturday's resumption of Ivy League play at Cornell. La Salle (13-4) had won 10 straight games and hadn't lost on its home turf since Oct. 29, 2010, claiming 13 straight victories during a 15-game home unbeaten streak.

In the win, Princeton had an impressive streak snapped, as the Tigers had not trailed for 665 straight minutes dating back to a win at Yale on Sept. 22. After a scoreless first half, La Salle's Anna Dolhansky snuck a shot inside the right post after receiving a pass across the box from Renee Washington, and the Explorers had a 1-0 lead in the 53rd minute.

With time ticking away, Lauren Lazo helped Princeton pull even. Taking a throw-in from Liana Cornacchio and after a few bounces off bodies in the goal crease, Lazo found the back of the net for the equalizer in the 75th minute.

Hoy's winner was her 17th goal of the season, making her one closer to the Princeton single-season record of 20 set by current assistant coach Esmeralda Negron '05 in 2004. Hoy remained ahead of Negron's pace, as Negron had 14 goals through 15 games in her senior season.

The goal capped a physical game between two teams whose seasons to this point have put them in a position to have their names called two weeks from tonight on the NCAA selection show. Princeton leads the Ivy League at 5-0, while La Salle leads the Atlantic 10 at 7-0.

La Salle had eight shots to Princeton's seven, though the Tigers led 4-3 in shots on goal. Claire Pinciaro had a scoreless first half in goal for Princeton, making one save, while senior classmate Kristin Watson saw action for the first time since Sept. 25 in an injury-hampered final campaign, making one save over her 48-plus minutes.

Princeton's game at Cornell will start at 6 p.m. Saturday. The Tigers lead Penn and Dartmouth by three standings points - or one win - and would clinch a share of the Ivy League title with a victory.
