Wrong play, wrong timeKey points did not go the Tigers' way, and errors came at the most inopportune times."We didn't play as well as we could've when we needed to," senior opposite Scott Birdwell said.Overall, Princeton played a consistent match, but Penn State had that extra edge that turned the tide in its favor.Essentially in their second season ? Penn State also has a fall season ? the Nittany Lions were on top of their game, finishing the match with a season-best .508 hitting percentage.The first game, though, was all Princeton, which rattled off a string of points after the score had been tied at eight to take a 14-9 lead.
