Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (3/27/13) - Sophomore Erin McMunn had a career-best nine-point game and freshman Alexandra Bruno scored a career-high six goals as the Princeton women's lacrosse team defeated Columbia 18-7 on Wednesday, March 27 at Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium.

McMunn scored a career-high six goals and added three assists. Those nine points ranks her fourth all-time at Princeton in points in a game tying the record of Crista Samaras '99, Lindsey Biles '05 and Kathleen Miller '07. All three were All-America players.

Senior Mary-Kate Sivilli and sophomore Erin Slifer both had a goal and two assists apiece. Senior Charlotte Davis scored twice and junior Sarah Lloyd had a goal and an assist. Junior Caroline Franke earned her fourth win in goal making eight saves, just one shy of her personal best.

Princeton improves to 5-3 overall and maintains its first-place in the Ivy League standings at 2-0.

The Tigers started the game on a 3-0 run, but Columbia cut its deficit to one with back-to-back goals. The teams traded goals near the 10-minute mark before the Tigers rattled off five straight to end the first half with a 9-3 lead.

Kelly Buechel opened the second half with two consecutive goals for Columbia. Davis and McMunn answered on the other end to maintain the six-goal lead, 11-5 at 18:36. Ashley Rinere converted a free-position attempt for the Lions at 12:13 before the Tigers went on a 5-0 run over the next 3:35 to take a 16-6 lead and start the running clock.

Kacie Johnson stopped the clock at 3:42 with the final goal for Columbia before Bruno chipped in two in the final 1:21 on the other end for the final 18-7 score.

Princeton held a 35-23 differential in shots and a 15-12 edge in draw controls. The Tigers were 15 for 15 on clears and as Columbia had 13 turnovers to Princeton's six. Princeton was 3 for 3 on eight-meter attempts while Franke thwarted four of Columbia's six.

Johnson finished the game with three goals for the Lions who fall to 1-8 on the season and 0-4 in the Ivy League. Colleen Packer made nine saves in net for Columbia.

The Tigers look to stay unbeaten in league play when they travel to take on No. 11 Cornell this Saturday, March 30 at 3 p.m.
