This weekend, No. 3 Cornell (20-5-4) will play No. 6 Princeton (14-11-4) in the quarterfinals of the ECAC Women’s Hockey Championships.

In a best-of-three series at Lynah Rink, defending ECAC champion Cornell will have the opportunity to get revenge against Princeton after last weekend’s 4-3 loss to the Tigers.

In the last regular season game, junior forward Jillian Saulnier captured a 1-0 lead in the first four minutes of the game. From that moment on the score was neck-and-neck, never extending beyond a one goal spread. The lead jumped between the two teams until Princeton’s Brianna Leahy secured a 4-2 lead in the last three minutes of play.

With extra skater junior forward Emily Fulton, Cornell was able to narrow Princeton’s lead to one goal with 57 seconds left in the third period. However, Princeton held on and claimed the win.
