Top Story

No. 9 Princeton Falls to No. 12 Brown as Both Goalies Shine

A game that figured to have 96 or so shots did have 96 shots.

A game that figured to have 30 goals instead had 30 saves.

Brown's Jack Kelly and Princeton's Eric Sanschagrin were awesome all game, combining to hold two of the nation's top offenses nearly 12 goals below their season averages. In the end, the teams instead produced 18 goals, and 10 went to Brown, which defeated Princeton 10-8 in a match-up of Ivy League unbeatens.

Kelly and Sanschagrin each made 15 saves, many of them wildly spectacular, and it was those two performances that kept the score from reflecting the track meet the game actually was. Princeton took a season-high 51 shots and allowed a season-high 45 as the teams went up-and-down the field, only to be stoned time and again by the goalies.

The win improved Brown to 8-1 overall and 2-0 in the Ivy League, as the Bears joined Cornell (3-0) as the only teams without a league loss. Princeton is now 6-2, 2-1 in the league headed into non-league road games at Stony Brook (Saturday) and Lehigh (April 7).

Notes

* Sanschagrin's 15 saves were one off his career-high, set earlier this year against Hofstra

* Princeton's defense, as well as Sanschagrin, held Brown's Dylan Molloy, the nation's leader in goals per game, to just two assists and 0 for 12 shooting. Brian Pickup spent much of the game on Molloy

* Molloy entered the game leading Division I in goals per game. Princeton's Kip Orban entered leading Division I midfielders in goals per game. The two combined for non goals on 0 for 22 shooting. Princeton is now 6-0 when Orban scores and 0-2 when he doesn't.

* Princeton trailed 5-3 early in the third quarter before tying it on goals from Gavin McBride and Adam Hardej. From that point, Princeton did not score for 20 minutes as Brown built the lead to 10-5. The Tigers scored the final three in the game and had four more shots after Zach Currier's behind-the-back goal with 3:54 left made it 10-8. Princeton never led in the game.

* Mike MacDonald had three goals and an assist and moved past Wick Sollers into eighth place all time at Princeton with 175 career points (109G, 66A). MacDonald, who leads the team in goals (25) and assists (20), needs five goals to tie Sollers for sixth place in goals.

* Ryan Ambler had three assists, giving him 99 career points (48G, 51A).

* McBride's goal keeps him as the only player with at least one point in every game this season.

* Will Himler had his first goal of the year.

* Austin deButts, who leads the team in caused turnovers, had two more, giving him 12.

* Brown got three goals from longsticks, including two goals (and an assist) from LSM Larken Kemp.

Princeton, N.J. Junior attackman Henry Blynn (Villanova, PA) scored four goals and junior goalie Jack Kelly (West Islip, NY) made 15 saves to lead #12 Brown to a thrilling 10-8 win over #9 Princeton Sunday morning before a crowd of 1,746 and national television audience at Class of 1952 Stadium.

Brown improves to 8-1 overall and 2-0 in the Ivy League, while Princeton falls to 6-2 overall, 2-1 in Ivy play.

Kelly was brilliant in the Brown goal with Princeton peppering the goal with 51 shot attempts. He made10 of his 15 saves in the opening half to hold off the Tigers as Brown built a 4-3 lead at intermission.

Blynn's season high four goals came on 10 shots. Junior Brendan Caputo (Westbury, NY) scored three goals for the Bears, while sophomore long stick middy Larken Kemp (Greenwich, CT) added two goals. Junior attackman Dylan Molloy (Setauket, NY), the nation's leading scorer, was held scoreless, but added two key assists.

Brown had the better of play in the trenches, grabbing a 37-32 margin in ground balls and junior Will Gural (Haverford, PA) winning 12 of 21 face-offs.

Mike MacDonald paced Princeton's attack with three goals and one assist, while Tigers' goalie Eric Sanschagrin kept the Tigers in the game with 15 saves.

Brown jumped out to a 2-0 first quarter lead on a goals by Kemp and Blynn, before the Tigers recovered with a goal by Mike McDonald with 10:09 left in the quarter.

Despite being out-shot 15-13 in the quarter, Kemp's second goal and one by Caputo gave Brown a 4-1 lead after the opening 15 minutes.

Princeton slowed the game down and scored the only two goals of the quarter one by McDonald and the other by Sean Connor to trail 4-3 at intermission.

A sea-saw battle ensued early in the third quarter with the Bears building a 5-3 lead on an early goal by Blynn, but Princeton tying the score at 5-5, following goals by Gavin McBride and Adam Hardej.

Blynn scored twice more to give Brown the lead for good, and Caputo netted his second goal to lift the Bears to an 8-5 lead over the Tigers with 3:04 left in the quarter.

Caputo and senior middy Nick Piroli (Black River, NY) registered goals for the Bears to cap a 5-0 Brown run for a 10-5 lead with 8:21 remaining in the game.

The Tigers made a late run on goals by Will Himler, MacDonald and Currier to cut Brown's lead to 10-8, with 3:54 left in the game. Brown's defense stiffened in the waning moments to fend off the Tigers.

The Bears return to Stevenson Field next Saturday, April 4, hosting Ivy League rival Penn. Face-off is scheduled for 3:00 pm.
