This weekend, Princeton women’s hockey will open its season at home against Syracuse (0–7) in a two-game series on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.

No. 13 Princeton football’s (5–0, 2–0 Ivy) 15-game winning streak and unbeaten 2019 record will be put to the test Saturday afternoon, as the Harvard Crimson (4–1, 2–0 Ivy) travel to New Jersey for Princeton’s homecoming game.

No. 8 field hockey (8–4 overall, 3–0 Ivy) put together a dominating performance to defeat Columbia (5–6, 1–2) by a score of 8–1 on Saturday afternoon at Bedford Field. The seven-goal win is the Tigers’ largest margin of victory since they defeated Brown last year 8–0.
Playing against the Brown Bears (1–6–2 overall, 0–1–1 Ivy League) in Providence, R.I. this Saturday, men’s soccer (6–3–1, 0–1–1) faced 110 minutes of adversity. They conceded a 13th-minute goal to the lower-ranked Bears, earned four yellow cards in the span of 18 minutes, lost two starters — one to a red card, the other to injury — and suffered through an excruciating double overtime. In all, even senior forward Danny Hampton’s 87th-minute goal was not enough to energize the Tigers; the game ended in a 1–1 draw.
