In its CWPA Southern Division opener, the No. 12 Princeton women's water polo team took care of business by handing Brown a 15-4 defeat Friday at DeNunzio Pool. The Tigers established the initial advantage and limited the Bears' offense all night.

A highly efficient offensive performance to go along with solid play on the defensive end, Princeton connected on 15-of-20 shot attempts in the win. Ashley Hatcher, Katie Rigler and Brittany Zwirner notched three apiece, in a match that saw contributions throughout the lineup.

The Tigers opened with a 2-0 run and ended the first quarter with a 4-2 lead. Brown would only find the back of the net twice more against a sturdy backline.

Goalie Ashleigh Johnson (7-2) had another superb performance in the cage, tallying 18 saves along with a steal in the winning effort.

Princeton (7-2, 1-0 Southern) now prepares for a weekend at the Villanova-hosted CWPA/MAAC Crossover. The Tigers faceoff with Siena and Iona on Saturday, before concluding the tournament Sunday with Wagner and Villanova.

No. 12 Princeton: 4 - 5 - 3 - 3 - 15
Brown: 2 - 1 - 0 - 1 - 4

Goals: Hatcher 3, Dunstan 1, Rigler 3, Zwirner 3, Gyorffy 1, Martinez 1, Gross 2, Murphy 1
