Iris Williamson (Germantown Friends) willed No. 10 Penn to its 10th win of the season, scoring a career high six goals Saturday as the Quakers knocked off Harvard, 8-6, to remain unbeaten in Ivy League play.
Williamson scored four goals in the second half – including three in row at the beginning of the second half which turned a 3-2 Penn lead into a 6-2 advantage.
Williamson’s six goals are the second time this season a Quakers has netted a half-dozen goals in a game, the first coming when Tory Bensen went for six in the season opener at Delaware back in February.
Temple 11, Marquette 7
Three players recorded hat tricks to lead Temple lacrosse to an 11-7 BIG EAST Conference win against Marquette, led by freshman Nicole Barretta (Downingtown East) with three goals and two assists. The win was the Owls’ first conference victory, snapping a three-game losing streak, and brings them to 9-4 overall and 1-3 in league play.
Barretta scored all three of her goals on her three free position opportunities, and also assisted on back-to-back goals late in the second half that helped Temple put the game away. Also recording hat tricks were sophomore Morgan Glassford (Strath Haven) and junior Nicole Tiernan (Washington Township) with three goals apiece.
Defensively, senior Carli Fitzgerald (Abingtn) had a strong game for Temple with six ground balls and three caused turnovers, limiting opportunities for the Golden Eagles all afternoon.
Princeton 13, Cornell 11
The last time Princeton played Cornell, Erin McMunn set an Ivy League Tournament record with seven goals. In Princeton’s win in Ithaca, McMunn assisted on her 82nd goal to become Princeton’s all-time assists leader.
Princeton used a five-goal run in the second half to overcome a three-goal deficit to take the lead over Cornell, 10-8. It was that 10th goal of the game that McMunn became the Tigers’ all-time leader, setting up teammate Stephanie Paloscio. The former record of 81 was held for 15 years by three-time All-America Crista Samaras ’99.
It took Princeton 6-0 seconds to get on the board, as sophomore Anna Doherty scored the first goal of the game. From there the first half saw four lead changes and four ties, as neither team took a significant lead in the see-saw match.
