Junior Carly Bullock scored four times to help Princeton earn a 4-1 win over Yale in the Tigers' ECAC Hockey opener Friday night at Hobby Baker Rink.
It marks the first time a Princeton skater has four goals in a game since Annie Greenwood had four in a 6-2 win over Colgate on Dec. 3, 2005.
After a scoreless first period, Bullock netted her first with 14:39 remaining in the second. The power play goal was assisted by Bullock's two freshman line mates Sarah Fillier and Maggie Connors. Bullock tallied again less than ten minutes later, with assists coming from Fillier and Connors once again. Bullock completed her natural hat trick with just under a minute remaining in the second skating in on Gianna Meloni after freshman Chloe Harveypoke checked the puck away in the neutral zone and Bullock took it the other way.
Less than a minute into the third period, Bullock scored her fourth goal with assists from Fillier and junior Claire Thompson.
The Bulldogs were able to get one, on the power play at 15:21, a tally by Rebecca VanStone.
Yale netminder Meloni made 41 saves on the night, while sophomore Princeton's Rachel McQuigge stopped 23 for the Tigers in her first win of the season.
Princeton hosts Brown tomorrow at 3 p.m., at Hobey Baker Rink.
