PHILADELPHIA - The Saint Joseph's women's soccer team dropped a hard-fought match to Princeton, 1-0, Tuesday afternoon at Sweeney Field.  

Playing equally over the opening 60 minutes of the game, the Hawks and Tigers came to a hault 15 minutes into the second half after a power outage knocked out the stadium lights.

After enduring a 45 minute delay, Princeton (3-1-1) got the first scoring opportunity as the Hawks (4-3-2) were whistled for a handball inside their own box. On the penalty kick by Lauren Lazo, senior goalkeeper Lauren Jancuska came up huge for SJU, making a sprawling save to her left to keep the game knotted at 0-0.

Unfortunately for the Hawks, Princeton would strike for a goal in the 83rd minute. With the ball 40 yards out, Tyler lussi lifted a high-arching shot that clipped the top of the crossbar and redirected into the goal at 82:04.

The Hawks would have one last chance off a corner kick in the 89th minute, but it failed to yield a scoring opportuity.

For the match, Jancuska posted a game-high seven saves as the Tigers outshot the Hawks 20-11. Saint Joseph's, which was led by senior Shannon Farrell's four shots, finished with a 9-3 edge in corner kicks.

The Hawks return to action Saturday as they close out the nonconference portion of their schedule against Hofstra at 7:30 p.m.
