Schreiber, Wiedmaier, Fiorito Lead #14 Princeton by Harvard

Princeton's entire defense was tremendous, including Jonathan Meyers, who held Harvard's Jeff Cohen - who came in second in Division I with 44 goals - to just one. And when the defense did allow someone to come free, Fiorito was there, as his 15 saves and five goals-against improved his numbers in five Ivy games to the startling totals of 4.83 goals-against and a save percentage of .711.

Freshman Kip Orban had two goals, and Jeff Froccaro was the only other Tiger with multiple points with a goal and two assists. Princeton had eight different players score goals and 11 players with at least one point.

Despite the loss, the news wasn't all bad for Harvard, who got help when Dartmouth defeated Penn 7-6, eliminating the Quakers from the Ivy tournament chase. Harvard would get into the tournament with either a win over Yale or a Brown loss to Dartmouth next weekend, and a win over Yale would make the Crimson the third seed and Yale (who has already clinched a spot in the field) the fourth seed.

Princeton went 4-8 a year ago. The win against Harvard was the fifth this year against a team that beat the Tigers in 2011.
