CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard field hockey team lost a tough conference contest to No. 4 Princeton, 9-0, Saturday afternoon at Jordan Field. Cynthia Tassopoulos made 15 saves in the cage for the Crimson.

Princeton scored just 4:39 into the game and added two more tallies in the next 10 minutes. Kaitlin Donovan scored three goals for the Tigers, who held at 5-0 lead at the half. Sophomore Georgia McGillivray gave the Crimson it’s only scoring opportunity when she fired a shot off Harvard’s lone corner in the second stanza.

The Crimson steps away from conference play to take on local rival Boston College Wednesday, Oct. 28 in Chestnut Hill. Game time is slated for 7 p.m.
