Box Score

In its most dominating performance of the season, the No. 2 Princeton field hockey team defeated Delaware, 10-2, Sunday afternoon at Bedford Field. Six different Tigers got in on the scoring game, as Princeton improved to 6-0, 1-0 Ivy on the year.

Kathleen Sharkey had three goals, scoring at the 2:08, 6:21 and 21:26-minute marks. The senior tri-captain also notched a pair of assists, as she contributed to Princeton's first five goals.

Both Michelle Cesan and Katie Reinprecht each had pair of goals apiece, with Cesan tallying two assists and Reinprecht recording one. Freshmen Teresa Benvenuti and Maddie Copeland each scored their first career goals, and Benvenuti dished two assists and classmate Kate Ferrara had her first career assist, as well.

Up 1-0 behind a third minute Sharkey goal, she turned around and dished the ball to an oncoming Cesan for 2-0 lead at 5:39. Sharkey then would score again off a Cesan assist three minutes later. Both Sharkey and Allison Evans would connect and find an open Reinprecht in front of the goal to quickly make it a 4-0 game at 13:40.

Sharkey notched her hat trick in the 22nd minute, but Delaware would respond and break up the Tigers' clean sheet with a goal five minutes later.

Benvenuti responded with an unassisted goal, picking up a loose ball and driving it into the net at 31:12. Ferrara then sent the ball inside the circle to Reinprecht at 34:07 to close out the half with a 7-1 lead.

Following halftime, Stephanie Goldberg sent in her first assist of the season to Cesan from the top of the circle at 37:45. Delaware added its second goal, before Princeton concluded the game with two more goals from Amanda Bird and Copeland.

Princeton held the shot advantage, 24-11, but both sides had six penalty corners each.

In goal, junior Christina Maida had a pair of saves over 35 minutes of work in the first half. Freshman Anya Gersoff made her collegiate debut in the cage in the second half and had a pair of saves.

The Tigers next head to Yale for Saturday, Sept. 22 game at 12 noon. The following day Princeton will face Syracuse, who is also ranked No. 2 in the nation, at 2 p.m.
