After losing the Ivy title (to Harvard) for the first time in twelve years, Princeton field hockey team is taking out its frustrations in the NCAAs, having beaten #5 Penn State Friday and today, #7 UVA 3-2 on a goal with 1 (ONE) second remaining.

With a very young team and a Freshman goalie, new coach Carla Tagliente has had to manage through some choppy moments, but things are gelling at the right time.

To add some spice, the #1 and #2 tournament seeds are already gone. #14 Tigers play #8 Delaware, whom they've already beaten, in the semis next weekend.

Now THIS is a fun tournament. #2 Cuse just lost in OT, so surviving to the semis are #4, 6, 8 and 14 teams, and only one from the obnoxious ACC. Tigers lost by 1 earlier to UNC, beat Delaware by 2, DNP UConn.

This is Tigers seventh semi BTW, the rest of the Ivies combined have one.

Give Central New Yorksome credit as Tagliente grew up in Cortland (She graduated from Marathon NY High School) and AD Mollie Marcoux is from Ithaca.

...and each is very formidable, with or without a stick in her hand.

Field hockey = "major sport"?

You might regard the header as a gentle irony addressed to folks who regard recruiting of high school football players as a 24/7/365 major sport.

Or not.
