Field Hockey to Conclude with No. 4 Princeton

PHILADELPHIA - The Penn field hockey team will finish up its season facing No. 4 ranked Princeton Friday at 7:15 p.m. on Franklin Field. The Quakers look to spoil the Tigers' perfect 6-0 Ivy record, which has already clinched them the League championship.

Princeton leads the all-time series 18-15-3 and has won the past four meetings, including last years' 5-0 defeat over Penn on Nov. 7. The Quakers' last win over the Tigers came on Nov. 5 2004, when the Red and Blue capped an eight game win streak and captured the Ivy championship with a 2-1 victory.

The Quakers (5-11, 2-4) enter Friday's game tied for fifth-place in the standings with Columbia and Harvard. Penn has put up a tough fight in every conference game this season but has unfortunately suffered three overtime league losses. This past week Penn defeated Brown 4-0 before falling to Columbia 2-0 on Tuesday.

Junior Laurel McGarvie and senior Kelsey Tahan lead the Quakers with 15 points apiece, followed by freshman Sarah Hasson with 10 points on five goals. Keeper Kieran Sweeney has spent 1109:40 minutes in the cage, making 96 saves for a 2.02 GAA.

Bound for the NCAA Tournament, Princeton (13-2, 6-0) comes off a 10-1 thrashing of Cornell for its 16th straight Ivy win. Katie Reinprecht and Michelle Cesan were named the Ivy League Player and Rookie of the Week, respectively for their efforts in the defeat. Kathleen Sharkey (38 points), Reinprecht (36), and Cesan (24) lead the Tigers' offense, while keeper Jennifer King holds a 1.14 GAA and has made 45 saves in 857:56 minutes.

Penn seniors Katie Burke, Katie Moran, Kelsey Tahan, Stephanie Ragg, Katie Rose, and Sarah Warner will be acknowledged in a pregame ceremony in honor of their final career game.
