Johns Hopkins vs. Princeton
March 1, 2013
The Game Story:
With one game under its belt, Princeton, complete with four starting freshmen and only two starters back from two years ago, was faced with the giant task of playing third-ranked Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Week 2.

Was it too much to ask of such a young, inexperienced team?

As it turned out, the Tigers would turn quite a few heads, including one who had a better-than-front-row view of the game.

"I was impressed," said Princeton head coach Chris Bates.

Why wouldn't he be? His Tigers showed amazing poise from start to finish en route to an 11-8 win over Hopkins in front of 2,352 in Baltimore.

It was a great team effort by Princeton, who got big performances all over the field, starting with reshman goalie Matt O'Connor, who made 10 saves against the powerful Blue Jays.

Princeton's 10 goals came from four players, as Tom Schreiber and Jeff Froccaro had three goals each and Jake Froccaro and Mike MacDonald had two each. Princeton trailed 7-6 midway through the third quarter before scoring five of the final six goals of the day.
