ANNAPOLIS, MD– The Tigers refused to give up in a great fight against the United States Naval Academy last Saturday. Final score: Princeton 19, Navy 41.


First Half

            A kickoff from Junior Coco Wallace start the game. Navy manages to maintain the ball for only a few seconds before it is taken by the Tigers. However, this does not stop Navy from retaking the ball to make a try, followed by a conversion, within the first four minutes of game play. For the next several minutes, the ball switches hand quite frequently before Navy breaks through the Tiger’s defensive line, within 22 meters of the Tiger’s try line to score. The following conversion is also successful. Navy then proceeds to score another try less than two minutes later. However, the Tigers quickly put the game back in their favor, when Junior Sydney Hsu is able to break the defensive line to score the first try of the game for the Tigers. A conversion kick by Wallace is also good. The first half is a little less than two quarters of the way through. The ball passes between both teams for the next few minutes before Navy regains control of the ball to score another try at the 23 minute mark. After a series of scrums, Navy takes control of the ball after a successful scrum to score their fifth try of the game with only eight minutes left in the half. The Tigers are able to fend off Navy in the final few minutes of game play and finally regaining ownership of the ball right before the half finishes out. Hsu is able to score another try as the half finishes out. Wallace’s conversion is also successful.

Princeton University-14
