[WEST VIRGINIA-PRINCETON] Ivy League champion Princeton got goals by Lynessa McGee and Jen Hoy and held off a West Virginia comeback for a 2-1 win in the first round of the NCAA Women's Tournament, its 12th in a row.

"To be able to beat West Virginia on their home field is really special," Princeton coach Julie Shackford said. "This team has found a way to win all season, with some injuries and setbacks, and as coaches we couldn't be any prouder of them."

McGee scored in the fifth minute, lifting a shot over the outstretched arm and off the fingertips of goalkeeper Sara Keane.

Hoy added to the lead with her 18th goal in the 54th minute, zipping past and through defenders for a tap-in shot.

West Virginia got on the board with an 82nd-minute goal from scoring leader Frances Silva, but that was as close as the Mountaineers came.

"I think it was a little bit of an emotional rollercoaster going through the game," Shackford said. "I think that in the second half especially, our defense tightened up and really made some big plays. We have to give a lot of credit to Claire for coming up big both in the first half and the second half."

Nov. 10 in Morgantown, W.Va.
