Box Score

Princeton, NJ - Senior Lindsey Biles (Annapolis, MD/Severn) scored all four of her goals in the second half to lead the second-ranked Princeton women's lacrosse team past sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins 9-6 at the Class of 1952 Stadium. The Blue Jays (1-1) led 5-4 at the break before the Tigers (1-0) outscored them 5-1 in the second half.

The game was the season opener for Princeton, which won two of the last three NCAA Championships and was runner-up in 2004. The Blue Jays and Tigers never met in women's lacrosse before tonight, as Hopkins looked for its first win over a team ranked higher than sixth.

Defense dominated the early game when both teams went over 10 minutes without a goal. Princeton sophomore Kathleen Miller (Alexandria, VA/St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) opened the scoring on an unassisted goal with 18:22 on the clock and then assisted a Mary Minshall (Bethesda, MD/Holton Arms) goal a minute later for a 2-0 Tiger lead.

The Blue Jays quickly answered as sophomore Mary Key (Stevensville, MD/St. Mary's) scored her seventh goal in two games on a free position shot, and senior Anne Crisafulli (Garden City, NY/Garden City) scored on a feed from freshman Lauren Schwarzmann (Sykesville, MD/Century) to tie the score 2-2 with 15:49 remaining in the first.

Miller scored her second goal of the night to regain the Princeton lead before back-to-back goals from junior Meagan Voight (Sykesville, MD/Liberty) put Johns Hopkins ahead for the first time, 4-3, with 4:22 to play.

Princeton tied the score again as Biles set up senior Elizabeth Pillion (Villanova, PA/Episcopal), who sped past two Hopkins defenders, but the Blue Jays answered with a Sarah Walsh (Port Washington, NY/Schreiber) goal with 1:43 remaining. The Blue Jays led 5-4 at the half.

 

 

Hopkins held just a slight edge in shots (12-10), but seven of those shots were fired directly on Princeton goalkeeper Sarah Kolodner (Cold Spring Harbor, NY/Phillips Exeter). Kolodner made seven first half saves, while Hopkins' Lauren Riddick (Crozet, VA/St. Anne's-Belfield) had one. The Blue Jays also led in ground balls (12-9) and draw controls (6-4) at the half.

Biles, who was questionable entering tonight's game due to a shoulder injury, came out of the locker room with a vengeance. She scored her first goal of the game just 34 seconds into the second half off a move to her left hand from behind the crease. Just as quickly, the momentum shifted to Princeton's favor.

Freshman Katie Lewis-Lamonica (Lawrenceville, NJ/Lawrenceville) scored her first career goal to give Princeton the 6-5 lead before Biles nailed three straight to put the game away. She scored two unassisted goals, using her speed to beat defenders one-on-one, and one free position shot with Riddick removed from the goal on a foul.

At the end of Biles' scoring spree, the Blue Jays trailed 9-5 with 3:25 to play. Key scored her second goal with 2:03 remaining in a final attempt to catch the Tigers, breaking a span of nearly 30 scoreless minutes.

Princeton outshot Hopkins 14-11 and won 4 of 7 draw controls in the second half, but the Blue Jays won the ground ball battle, 11-9. Hopkins finished with a 23-18 advantage on ground balls and a 9-8 edge on draw controls. Shots were also near even, as Princeton led 24-23. Kolodner finished with 14 saves for Princeton, and Riddick had six for Hopkins.

Biles' four goals were a game-high, while Key and Voight paced Johns Hopkins with two apiece. Key added two assists for a team-high four points.

The Blue Jays are back on the road next weekend at American Lacrosse Conference (ALC) opponents Ohio State and Ohio. Hopkins meets the Buckeyes on March 11 at 6 p.m.
