This past weekend was a big one for Princeton field hockey. On Friday night, the Tigers (10–3 overall, 3–0 Ivy) traveled to New York City to take on Columbia (6–4 overall, 2–1 Ivy) under the lights. At halftime, Princeton led by only one goal, but in the second period, the team added three more tallies. The commanding 4–0 win was sophomore striker Clara Roth’s sixth career multi-goal game. For sophomore goalkeeper Grace Brightbill, the game was her collegiate debut, as she stepped into the net to replace junior Grace Baylis for the final 3:54. Princeton is now 21–1 all time against the Lions.
Anyone who has paid attention to the start of the football season has noticed one major trend: Princeton’s offense has been good. For the first few weeks, many of us chalked it up to Princeton playing in a scheme it knew well, going up against a slew of teams that were struggling to find defensive identities. However, now four weeks in, it doesn’t look like the offensive production is a fluke. After dropping 66 points on Lehigh this past weekend — more points than the basketball team scored in 12 of their games last season — it is becoming more and more clear that this offense is the real deal. Beyond that, through the first third of the season, the Princeton offense is not just great, it is also trending in a historic direction.
