Princeton Tops Harvard

Julia Edgar's first collegiate goal couldn't be sweeter, as it came 1:10 into overtime to lift No. 10 Princeton to a 2-1 win over Harvard.
 
Edgar's drive from the left point came after senior Molly Contini collected her own rebound behind the goal and pushed the puck out the blue line to sophomore Stephanie Sucharda. Sucharda slid the puck across the paint to Edgar and the left-handed shot went through traffic and into the netting.
 
The Tigers could feel the goal coming all night as they outshot the Crimson by an incredible 52-21, which included a 21-7 differential in the second and a 21-2 differential in the third. Harvard has Molly Tissenbaum to thank as the senior netminder collected 50 shots in her first season as the starter.
 
Sydney Daniels gave the Crimson the lead late in the second period as she popped in a Lexie Laing rebound at 15:49.
 
Senior Cassidy Tucker answered with her third tally of the season at 11:54 of the third. Senior Morgan Sly and sophomore Karlie Lund worked to peel the puck off the boards and Tucker was wide open in the slot to one-time it past Tissenbaum.
 
Senior Alysia DaSilva made 20 saves in the winning effort for the Tigers, who improve to 4-2-1 overall and 2-2-1 in the ECAC and 2-0-1 in Ivy League play. Harvard drops to 1-3 overall.

Princeton faces Dartmouth tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m., at Thompson Arena.
