PRINCETON, N.J. — Olivia Mucha and Denna Laing tallied a goal and an assist to lead Princeton to a 3-1 victory over New Hampshire on Friday.

After a scoreless first, Mucha opened the scoring with 1:06 remaining in the second period, blasting home a feed from Laing at the hash marks to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.

Carrying momentum into the third, the Tigers’ offense scored twice in the first minute of the period, as Ali Pankowski and Laing scored 34 seconds apart to give Princeton a 3-0 lead.

Goaltender Vilma Vaattovaara made 17 saves for the Wildcats.
