Another game, another 10 points from Kip Orban and Mike MacDonald.
Another year, another one-goal Princeton-Yale game.
Orban scored four goals, MacDonald had two goals and four assists and Princeton held off Yale 11-10 in front of 1,686 at Sherrerd Field at Class of 1952 Stadium Saturday afternoon.
The win improved No. 13 Princeton to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in the Ivy League.
Even more history suggested that this game would be close, even when Princeton built a 9-4 lead on Will Rotatori’s goal three minutes into the second half.
By the time it ended, goalie Eric Sanschagrin had to make a tough save on a low shot by Sean Shakespeare with 1:33 to go and Austin deButts had to cause the last of his three turnovers and run out the final 10 seonds to protect what became a one-goal win.
And so now it is six consecutive regular-season games between the two teams — all six since Chris Bates became Tiger head coach — that have been decided by one goal.
MLAX – And it’s final. Princeton 11, Yale 10. Last six regular season games between Princeton and Yale are one-goal games.
