STRUTTING HIS STUFF: Princeton University junior receiver Trey Peacock struts into the end zone last Thursday evening on his fourth quarter touchdown reception against Colgate. Peacock had six catches for 83 yards on the night which ended on a down note for the Tigers as Colgate pulled out a 21-14 win.

Trey Peacock made 15 catches in the first three games this fall for the Princeton University football team but the Tiger coaches wanted more from him as the squad faced undefeated Colgate last Thursday evening.

Unable to Pull Off 5th Straight Rally, PHS Football Falls 14-7 at Steinert

Bill Alden

In the first four games of the 2009 season, the Princeton High football team had proven to be the comeback kids.

Falling behind early in every game and trailing at halftime in three of the contests, the Little Tigers had rallied each time to get off to a 4-0 start, the program’s best record at that stage since 1991.

Last Saturday, PHS dug another early hole as it played at Steinert and fell behind 14-0 in the second quarter. The Little Tigers nearly scored before that half but Trevor Barsamian was stopped short of the goal-line on the last play of the second quarter.

Sparked by Weingrad’s Hard-Hitting Play, Hun Football Routs Lawrenceville 27-9

Colin Weingrad and his teammates on the Hun School football team were determined to get off to a good start against the Lawrenceville School last Saturday and not let up until the final whistle.

A week earlier, Hun built a 14-0 lead over Penn Charter only to lose 21-14.

Although the Hun School girls’ soccer team fell 2-0 to powerful Pennington last Thursday, its valiant performance in a losing cause could well be a harbinger of wins to come.

“Pennington is a very, very strong team and we were in a shell for the first 15 minutes; they had a lot of opportunities but our defense came up big,” said Hun head coach Ken Stevenson, noting that Pennington generated 10 corner kicks before scoring late in the first half.

With New Head Coach Schnepf Showing Fire, Youthful PDS Field Hockey Making Progress

Bill Alden

The wind was howling and the Princeton Day School field hockey team trailed undefeated Lawrenceville by five goals early in the second half last Wednesday evening.

The chilly night and the lopsided score, though, did nothing to snuff out the fire displayed by PDS head coach Heather Schnepf.

The first-year mentor waved her arms to get her players in the right position and yelled out encouragement to reward good plays.
