Girls soccer: Young players key for Princeton in rebuilding season

Princeton keeper Maddie Oertel keeps her eye on the prize against L-P Tuesday night at Bryant Field.

It was a rebuilding season for the Princeton girls soccer team, which had a young team as they moved on from the departure of its all-time leading scorer, Mariah Hobson, now at Monmouth College.

The Tigresses went 6-13-2, scoring 42 goals while allowing 51.

Here’s a look at the key players behind their season:

Keighley Davis, Princeton (So., MF)

The sophomore mid-fielder came over from track and scored five goals with two assists in her first season on the pitch.
