It was just the first weekend of the season, but the Princeton University women’s soccer team proved it can win in different ways.
In its season opener at the University of New Hampshire last Friday, the 14th-ranked Tigers outshot the Wildcats 21-2 on the way to a 2-0 win. Two days later at Boston University, Princeton had to hold the fort as it was outshot 12-7 but was able to pull out a 1-0 victory.
