PRINCETON, N.J. (4/16/14) - The Princeton women's lacrosse team took one step closer to the Ivy League title as it knocked off No. 10 Penn 9-5 on Wednesday night on Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium to take over the first place in the Ivy standings.

The Princeton defense forced Penn into 13 turnovers and 13 shots as it improved to 9-4 overall and 5-1 in the Ivy League. It was the Tigers' first win over Penn at home since 2006.

Penn's five goals is the fewest goals the Quakers have scored in an Ivy League game since April 15, 2006 vs. Dartmouth.

Junior Erin McMunn led the offense with three goals and one assist, while sophomore Anya Gersoff scored twice. Senior Sarah Lloyd had one goal and was a key force down the stretch winning three draws and causing three turnovers. In goal, netminder Annie Woehling made five saves including two on free-positions, when Princeton had a two-goal lead early in the second and in the final two minutes on Penn's last possession.

The Tigers took a 5-1 lead in the first half with four different goal scorers. Gersoff scored twice, while Erin Slifer, Mary-Kate Sivilli and McMunn had a goal apiece.

Catherine Dickinson scored her second goal of the night and Lindsey Smith added another as the Quakers halted the Tigers' run and made it 5-3 with 7:20 left in the half.

Freshman Olivia Hompe had the final tally of the half, scoring on a feed from McMunn at 4:42.

Dickinson's third goal of the game started the second half scoring, and Smith followed up as the pair cut Penn's deficit to 6-5 at 15:50.

McMunn regained the two-point cushion for Princeton with an unassisted goal at 9:11. It was a relief off her back as she had a goal called back for being in the crease and a free-position shot saved just minutes earlier.

Lloyd had a point-blank shot and goal after forcing Iris Williamson into a turnover and getting a good clear with less than six minutes to play. Lloyd won the next draw and 40 seconds later it was Sivilli to McMunn capping off the win with Princeton's ninth goal.

Lloyd again won the next draw and Princeton held the ball for nearly two minutes before Penn got the turnover. That Quaker possession however was thwarted by Woehling as she made the save on Smith's eight-meter, got the ground ball and cleared with 1:09 to play.

Princeton outshot Penn 20-13 including a 14-4 differential in the first half. Princeton had a 14-8 edge in ground balls and draws were even 8-8.
