Princeton Players Enjoy Dartmouth’s Tennis Ball Tradition

When Carl Hesler gave Dartmouth the 1-0 lead last Friday, fans sent tennis balls to the ice. The game paused as the tennis balls were cleared off the ice, another piece of the Princeton-Dartmouth tradition in Hanover, N.H.

“[It’s] pretty cool. But other than that we want to make sure that they don’t score many goals on us and we want to score before they do,” junior Mike Ambrosia said.

“It stops the play and gets everybody out of their rhythm. It’s a tradition and things you’re going to remember, but hopefully they don’t score any goals.” Continue reading Princeton Players Enjoy Dartmouth’s Tennis Ball Tradition

Midterms Not A Playoff Distraction For Princeton

Princeton’s assistant captains walked up the stairs at Baker Rink, backpacks on hand as they prepared to leave.

For the Tigers, it was an early practice preparing for Dartmouth just one day before the trip to Hanover, N.H. While the first-round series is approaching, so are midterms – which will take place at Princeton next week.

“Sometimes it’s a little tougher, some guys have tougher schedules than others, so it just depends,” senior Aaron Ave said. “But everyone’s pretty good at time management, that’s why they’re here. You just kind of have to get in the studying when you can.”

Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

PRINCETON, N.J. – Princeton held the lead over Yale for less than three minutes, but the Bulldogs (16-7-4, 11-6-3 ECAC) responded with three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead.

A couple turnovers helped the Bulldogs, who  added three more goals – including an empty-net tally – to take a 6-2 victory over the Tigers (4-19-3, 2-16-2 ECAC).

“It’s been a learning process and today I thought that just looking back at the goals, we lost the game,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “We gave Yale opportunities to get to the net quicker before we got coverage reestablished, lost some battles and chalk that one up to us losing the game. Not Yale winning.

“We lost the game for sure.” Continue reading Princeton Ends Home Slate With Loss To Yale

Mental Mistakes Doom Princeton In Loss To Union

PRINCETON, N.J. – After a strong first period, Princeton fell victim to another lapse of focus that doomed the Tigers in the second. Union hemmed Princeton in their own zone for nearly the entire frame, ripping off 35 shots – and scoring twice.

“We started well, we were being smart,” Princeton coach Ron Fogarty said. “I thought the penalty that we took on the power play was a soft mental penalty that cost us power play time.

“Then it went extremely downhill from there.”

Ryan Siiro took an interference penalty that negated the power play. Union struck twice in the second and padded their lead in the third, defeating Princeton 5-2 on Friday night.

“That was awful.” Continue reading Mental Mistakes Doom Princeton In Loss To Union

Midseason Awards: Princeton’s Unsung Hero

There have been several players who’ve been consistent – and overlooked – for Princeton this season.

Sophomores Quin Pompi and Garrett Skrbich have taken steady roles in the lineup each night, as have several freshmen. On a team with minimal offense, Aaron Kesselman – thanks to a late surge – is tied for the team lead with five points. Jonathan Liau, who’s also played in every game this season, leads the team with three goals. Continue reading Midseason Awards: Princeton’s Unsung Hero
