Sixth-ranked Princeton scored four unanswered goals in the final 11 minutes to break a tie and defeat No. 18 Johns Hopkins, 13-9, yesterday at Class of '52 Stadium.
The Blue Jays dropped their second straight and slipped to 1-2 this season; the game was the Tigers' opener. Sophomore Brianna Cronin scored a career-high four goals for Hopkins.
Coming out of the half trailing 7-4, Cronin scored back-to-back goals to pull the Blue Jays within one. She opened the scoring on a free-position goal, beating Kaitlyn Perelle between the legs. Just 48 seconds later, she dodged the right side and scored off a hard shot to the far post. Lizzy Drumm answered for the Tigers with 24:20 to play to push the lead back to two, scoring on a bounce shot. Forty-nine seconds later, Kristin Schwab dodged through traffic and scored on a high shot to make it 9-6.
Freshman Alyssa Kildare scored her second goal of the season on a free-position shot with 21:37 remaining to ignite a 3-0 Blue Jays run. Cronin then found the cage again for her fourth of the day. The Tigers then pulled Perelle in favor of Erin Tochihara, who had started the game and played the first half. Sophomore Brooke Foussadier scored off a restart off a failed Princeton clear to tie the score at 9. That would be all the scoring for the Blue Jays as the Tigers got two goals from Kristin Morrison and goals from Anne Murray and Schwab to end the game.
