Scott Urick and McCavera each scored and assisted on a goal in the third quarter as the Hoyas held a 10-6 lead entering the final period.

Georgetown fought off two of Hobart's three extra-man situations, including a pair of two-man advantages, in the final period to clinch the victory.

No. 10 Princeton 12, Harvard 8: Matt Bailer scored a career-high three goals and won all 12 of his faceoffs as the host Tigers (5-3, 4-0 Ivy League) remained unbeaten against the Crimson (3-6, 1-3) over the past eight games.

Princeton's B. J. Prager had three goals and needs eight goals to tie Jesse Hubbard's freshman record of 23.

The Tigers led 6-4 at halftime and reeled off five consecutive goals in the third period. Prager had two goals during the spurt, including Princeton's fourth extra-man goal.

No. 11 Penn State 15, Rutgers 8: The visiting Nittany Lions (7-2) used a six-goal run covering the second and third periods on the way to victory.

Chris Schiller had four goals and John Chescavage three for Penn State.

The Lions' decisive run started with a goal by Chescavage with 2: 22 left before intermission and ended with Ted Holmes' goal with seven minutes left in the third that pushed Penn State's lead to 12-4.

The loss dropped the Scarlet Knights to 4-6.
