Caroline de Lyra single-handily kept USC in the game as the Trojans went on a 6-2 run to knot the game at 8-8 with less than six minutes to play in the first half. de Lyra factored into five of those six goals, scoring four and assisting on one.

Princeton called timeout, regrouped and regained the lead, with goals by Gersoff and Sivilli in the final two minutes to take a 10-8 lead into halftime.

The teams traded goals to start the second half with Princeton maintaining its two-goal lead with goals from McMunn and Sivilli from the eight-meter, while Caroline Cordrey and Paige Bonomi scored for USC.

Gassaway tallied her first goals of the season, getting two as Princeton scored three unanswered to take its largest lead of the game, 15-10.

The Trojans would creep within three with two more from de Lyra and one from Amanda Johansen with less than seven minutes to play in the goal.

Sivilli and Charlotte Davis would have the final answers with goals at 5:14 and 18.7 to give Princeton the 18-13 win.
