PRINCETON, NJ - On the strength of four first-half goals, two each by seniors Kathryn Moos (Wayzata, MN) and Jill Mansfield (East Windsor, NJ), the Brown women's soccer team (6-3-3, 1-1-1) cruised past Princeton (4-6-1, 0-3-0) in an Ivy League contest on Saturday afternoon in Princeton. The win is Brown's second straight victory over the Tigers, after picking up a 2-1 triumph last year in Providence.
Moos wasted little time in giving Brown a 1-0 lead when she scored all the Bears would need just 5:51 into the game. Sophomore Lindsay Cunningham (Cumberland, RI) crossed the ball to Moos from the left side and from mid air, Moos knocked the ball into the back of the net off the side of her foot.
Mansfield then gave the Bears a 2-0 lead 20 minutes later when she beat Princeton goalie Maren Dale one-on-one to score her third goal of the year at 25:43. Just six minutes later, Moos scored her second goal of the game and her eighth of the season when she took advantage of a miscue by Dale and fired the ball into an open net.
The final score of the game came just 10 minutes later, at 41:47 when Moos connected on a cross to Mansfield, who scored her fourth goal of the year to give Brown a 4-0 lead. With five points in the game, Moos, the leading scorer in the Ivy League, now has 20 points on the season, matching a career high.
The Bears outshot Princeton, 12-5 for the game en route to their first Ivy League win of the season. Freshman goalie Brenna Hogue (Concord, CA) recorded three saves while posting her fourth shutout of the season.
