Tiger Bits: Info from Women's Soccer's 1-0 Win over Towson
Sarah Peteraf's last three career goals have been game-winning or game-tying. On Oct. 28, 2006, Peteraf had the only goal in a 1-0 win over Cornell. After not scoring last season, Peteraf has scored in two of Princeton's three games this season. She had the game-tying goal against Boston University and the game-winner against Towson. Five of Peteraf's six career goals have come in Princeton shutouts.
Speaking of shutouts, sophomore goalkeeper Alyssa Pont earned her first career shutout against Towson.
Freshmen Lauren Brown and Alissa Boddie got their first career starts against Towson. Barb Previ has been the only other freshman to start this season, getting the nod in Princeton's opener against Boston University.
The overtime win was Princeton's first overtime victory since Oct. 22, 2005 at Harvard when Emily Behncke '06 scored with 14 seconds left in the second OT. The last time Princeton won an overtime game at home was Sept. 10, 2005 against Loyola Marymount when Diana Matheson '08 scored 2:20 into the first overtime.
The win over Towson was Princeton's first over a Colonial Athletic Association team since 2002 when the Tigers beat George Mason. Princeton had since faced two CAA teams, back-to-back during the 2006 season when it tied Virginia Commonwealth and lost to William & Mary.
