The No. 10 Princeton women's water polo team concluded the Bucknell Invitational splitting with Indiana and Hartwick. The Tigers were unable to overcome an early run by the No. 12 Hoosiers and fell 4-2, before edging past Hartwick 7-6 to conclude the weekend.

Low offensive output combined with a first half 3-0 deficit was too much to overcome versus 12th-ranked Indiana. The Tigers' snapped their five-game winning streak with the loss to the Hoosiers.

Despite 16 saves from goalie Ashleigh Johnson, Princeton only scored twice on 24 attempts.

Taylor Dunstan broke up the Hoosiers' clean sheet in the third quarter, but the Tigers were unable to create a momentum push following the sophomore's goal.

Down 4-1, Jessie Holechek capitalized on a power play to add Princeton's final goal in the fourth quarter.

No. 10 Princeton: 0 - 0 - 1 - 1 - 2
No. 12 Indiana: 1 - 2 - 0 - 1 - 4

Goals: Dunstan 1, Holechek 1
Steals: McBee 2, Dunstan 1, Klein 2, Gyorffy 2, Gross 3, Johnson 2
Saves: Johnson 16

The Tigers responded to their loss to Indiana by edging past Hartwick, 7-6.

Princeton took a 6-3 lead into halftime and managed to maintain its advantage through the fourth quarter.

Molly McBee and Katie Rigler led the offense with a pair of goals apiece, and Johnson finished with 12 saves in the cage to preserve the one-goal victory.

Princeton returns home to host Brown on Friday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. in DeNunzio Pool.

No. 10 Princeton: 4 - 2 - 1 - 0 - 7
