The Princeton University men's lacrosse team missed the NCAA tournament last year after Mark Kovler and Rich Sgalardi suffered season-ending injuries. It wasn't a coincidence. The two midfielders proved their value, as they led the fourth-seeded Tigers (13-2) to a 10-7 win over Massachusetts (9-6) before a standing room only crowd at Class of 1952 Stadium. Kovler notched a career-high five goals and added and assist for a career-high six points. Sgalardi added three goals and one assist. The midfield accounted for every point of the Tigers' first eight goals. "To go out and do what we had to do to beat a really good team, that's what it's all about," Kovler said, "especially after last year when Rich and I weren't able to finish the season. We're just trying to make this one last as long as we can." © Kevin P. Tucker
