Princeton Tops Yale
Mock Scores Lone Bulldog Goal
PRINCETON, N.J. – Princeton broke open a 1-0 game with three second-period goals Saturday afternoon at Baker Rink against Yale, then went on to finish off a 7-1 win. Freshman forward Stephanie Mock scored the Bulldogs' only goal, assisted by senior forward Aleca Hughes.
Princeton (4-1-1, 3-0-1 ECAC Hockey) had a 10-7 shot advantage in the first, scoring the period's only goal (forward Denna Laing). Yale senior goalie Genny Ladiges had nine saves.
The Tigers then scored three times in the first nine minutes of the second period to seize control. The Bulldogs called timeout after the fourth goal. They would have three power plays for the rest of the period but could not capitalize on any of them. One Yale goal was waved off after it was ruled that the puck had been kicked in.
After Tigers forward Alex Kinney made it 5-0 at 6:27 of the third, Mock scored on a power play 90 seconds later. Two more Princeton goals finished off the scoring.
Ladiges finished with 24 saves, while freshman Jaimie Leonoff came on to make nine in the third period. Princeton's Rachel Weber made 27 stops.
Yale (0-7-0, 0-4-0 ECAC Hockey) hosts Union next Friday.
