  • PRINCETON, NJ – Despite an early goal from Megan Cech (Moorestown, NJ), the Rutgers field hockey (7-8) team lost to No. 10 Princeton (7-3), 3-1, on Sunday, Oct. 12, at Princeton’s Class of 1952 Stadium.

    Cech gave Rutgers to a 1-0 lead just 6:43 into the first half when she scored on a penalty corner. Jennfer Noon (Shavertown, PA) assisted on the play, sending a perfect pass to Cech, who beat Princeton goalkeeper Allison Nemeth. It was Cech’s second goal in the last three games.

    Rutgers held the lead until the 14:01 mark in the first half when PU’s Maren Ford scored on a feed from Natalie Martirosian. Ford, who finished with two goals, scored the eventual game-winning goal five minutes into the second half when he knocked a rebound past Rutgers goalkeeper Aga Siemiginowska (Winchester, MA). The Tigers’ final goal came on a penalty corner in the 48th minute.

    “I was proud of our team because we didn’t have a let down after the big win over Providence,” said head coach Liz Tchou. “We had some opportunities in the second half; we just could not take advantage of them. Princeton is a great team, and we learned a lot about ourselves from playing them.”

    Siemiginowska made nine saves for the Scarlet Knights, who were outshot 19-4.

    Rutgers returns to action on Sunday, Oct. 19, when it hosts BIG EAST foe and 13th-ranked Connecticut at the Rutgers Stadium in the final home game of the 2003 season. Prior to the contest, Rutgers will honor its seven seniors.
