After a perfect Thursday, Oct. 19, in the ITA Northeast Regional which saw every competing Tiger advance beyond the first round, the Tigers found themselves slowly being whittled down in the rounds of 64, 32 and 16 during various events. Senior Kial Kaiser competed well in his final Northeast Regional, making it to weekend play in both the singles and doubles events. He and junior Jimmy Wasserman made it to the round of 16 in the doubles event before losing to Harvard tandem of Jean Thirouin and Andy Zhou. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they were not able to come into the tournament full strength as some players could not get healthy in time for the Northeast Regional.
In a nationally televised Friday night game, Princeton football showed a larger audience why it deserves to be taken seriously by routing Harvard 52–17 on the road. Senior quarterback Chad Kanoff was highly efficient, not throwing an incompletion until the third quarter, and the defense kept Harvard off the scoreboard for much of the game.
This Friday night the Princeton football team will take on Harvard under the lights in Cambridge, Mass. Both Princeton and Harvard have a conference record featuring one loss, making this week’s game a must-win in the race for the Ivy League title.
The Princeton men’s soccer team (3–6–3) will be traveling to Cambridge this Saturday, Oct. 21, to face the Harvard Crimson (2–7–3). When these teams faced one another last year, there were five goals, three lead changes, and two ties in just the first half of play, but the Tigers still came up short 3–2 in the end. This game is a constant battle between both teams — neither team has held a winning streak longer than two games since Princeton held a five-game win streak from 2009 to 2013.
It was a wild weekend for the Princeton soccer teams this Saturday. Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium played host to some doubleheader action, as the men took on Columbia in the afternoon before ceding the pitch to the women for their Saturday night showdown, also against Columbia. The men got things rolling with a wild 0-0 draw against the No. 22 team in the nation that went into two overtimes. The Tigers hung around for the entire afternoon despite being outshot 21-6 by the Lions. Sophomore goalkeeper Jacob Schachner had a career-high seven saves for the Tigers in net and spearheaded an impressive defensive effort which led Princeton to its first Ivy League point this season. Despite the lack of scoring by both teams, the Tigers and Lions played a tightly contested and very entertaining game that was an awesome start to the doubleheader.
What happened Saturday night no one could have predicted. The No. 11 Tigers — winners of five straight matches and heavy front runners for the Ivy League women's soccer title — were upset at home by Columbia 2-0. There is no way to describe it other than as a shocking upset; the Lions did come into the game undefeated in conference play as well, but many saw the Tigers as a dominant, perhaps even an unstoppable, force in the Ivy League. Princeton got blitzed by Columbia; the Lions scored two goals in the first 11 minutes of the game and the Orange and Black could not manage a retaliatory score despite having 21 shots on goal. Now, the Tigers are left to lick their wounds and respond with a strong showing in their final games. Despite, the loss, the Tigers can still claim the Ivy League title and even a birth in the NCAA Tournament. Let’s take a look at the current situation for the Tigers and their outlook for the rest of the season.
On Monday, Princeton hosted Team China for an exhibition game at Hobey Baker Rink. The Tigers made the most of the evening and walked away with a feel-good 3-0 shutout of Team China. Princeton coach Cara Morey was able to schedule the matchup of teams across the world; having played under coach Digit Murphy of Team China while at Brown, the two formed a close relationship on and off the ice and were happy to reconnect for an exhibition game.
This past weekend, the women’s volleyball team travelled to Cornell and Columbia to complete the first half of its Ivy League competition. Despite entering the weekend with a perfect record, the Tigers stumbled against both the Bears and the Lions, knocking the Princeton team off the top spot in the Ivy League standings. They are now tied with Harvard for second.
