PRINCETON, N.J. – The Harvard women's lacrosse team (6-5, 3-1 Ivy) dropped its first Ivy League game of the year, falling on the road at No. 7 Princeton (9-1, 3-0 Ivy), 20-5.

Caroline Garrity had two goals for the Crimson, to go with one ground ball, one draw control and a caused turnover. Maeve McMahon gathered six draw controls to go with an assist.

The Crimson and Tigers traded goals early on, tying at 3-3 midway through the first period. Nicole Baiocco set Keeley MacAfee up for Harvard's first goal at 27:15. Just over a minute later, Katie Muldoon scored on a free position and Garrity scored her first with 15:57 left in the first, off a pass from Marisa Romeo.

Princeton took control from there, scoring seven of the next eight goals before intermission and then 10 of the 11 goals in the second frame. Julia Glynn's unassisted tally with 15:47 remaining in the game marked the final score for the Crimson.

Harvard will host UMass Lowell Tuesday night at Harvard Stadium at 7 p.m. in its final out-of-conference game of the season.
