PRINCETON, N.J. (4/11/14) - With two Ivy League games remaining Princeton holds the cards in determining its post season fate. The first task comes Saturday when the Tigers take on Harvard which has a matching 3-1 Ivy League record, at Harvard Stadium.

Princeton heads to Harvard with a 7-4 overall record after having a six-game win streak come to an end on Wednesday night in a one-goal loss to No. 2 Maryland. The Tigers, receiving votes in the national polls, held the Terps to its fewest goals in 29 games.

Princeton has a number of scoring threats with seven players eclipsing the 20-points plateau. Junior Erin McMunn sits atop the scoring column for the third straight season, this year with 19 goals and nine assists. Sophomore Alexandra Bruno (20-7-27), junior Erin Slifer (15-12-27) and freshman Olivia Hompe (12-15-27) all have 27 points to their credit. Freshman Anna Doherty has the most goals on the team with 21 total and adds three assists for 24 points. Senior Sarah Lloyd does it all with 16 goals and four assists for 20 points while also leading the team in draw controls with 23 and ground balls with 15. The defensive prowess of freshman Liz Bannantine and senior Colleen Smith has results in 31 caused turnovers. Junior Annie Woehling has started in goal for the Tigers in the last seven games. With a 6-1 record she has an 8.33 goals against average and a .466 save percentage.

Princeton holds a 26-18 edge over its Ivy counterpart in the all-time series. This is the 40th anniversary of the first time the teams met, back in 1974. Princeton won last year’s meeting, 11-9, but Harvard has had a 3-2 advantage in the last five games winning the last two meetings in Cambridge.

Harvard enters the game with the same overall record and Ivy League record as the Tigers. The Crimson have won their last three games including a 16-5 game at Holy Cross this past Wednesday. They also are 5-1 at home. Harvard’s claim to fame this season is defense as it has held eight teams to under 10 goals. The Crimson are 7-1 when allowing fewer than 10 goals and 0-3 when opponents score 10 or more goals.

Freshman Marisa Romeo leads Harvard in scoring with 37 goals and six assists for 43 points. Nineteen of Romeo’s goals have come on free-position shots. Freshman Megan Hennessey and sophomore Alexis Nicolia are tied for second on the team in scoring with 23 points apiece. Each has 16 goals and seven assists. Sophomore Audrey Todd adds 21 points with 17 goals and four helps. Hennessey and Todd are the team’s top two around the center circle as they have 26 and 22 draw controls, respectively. Freshman Marina Burke, sophomore Tory Waldstein and sophomore goalie Kelly Weis are all in double figures in caused turnovers with 14, 12 and 10, respectively. Weis has also been credited with 30 ground balls as she has been on the only netminder utilized this season. In 644 minutes she has a 9.12 GAA and a .497 save percentage making 97 saves and allowing 98 goals.
