Knickerbocker Roundup: All Ivy Edition

This seems much more exciting than gym field hockey.

Need to know what’s going on with Columbia Athletics? Madman have a gun to your head insisting you tell him who the field hockey team is playing this weekend? Desperate for anything to get your mind off the news? Sports Editor Abby Rubel has what you need.

Football: Columbia (2-0) will take on Princeton (2-0) today in the first Ivy game of the season and its home opener. After sustaining some critical injuries in their first game of the season, the Lions struggled against Georgetown last week, settling for field goals instead of touchdowns and struggling to keep back the Hoyas’ offense. The Yale Undergraduate Sports Analytics Group gave the Tigers a 77.9 percent chance of winning and predicted that they’d win by about 13 points. Princeton’s offense is tough, averaging 50.5 points per game and 577.5 yards of total offense. Columbia defeated Princeton last year, but this year’s matchup could be different especially because of the injuries plaguing the Lions. If you’re heading to the game, tickets are free with a CU ID and Athletics will be running free shuttle buses to Baker starting 2.5 hours before the 6:00 pm kickoff from 116th and Broadway.

Women’s Soccer: The Lions (4-4-1, 1-0 Ivy) will take on the Brown Bears in Rhode Island (4-5-1, 0-1 Ivy) on Saturday at 3:30 pm. Columbia is coming off a double overtime win against Cornell last week and looking to move up its from third place ranking. Columbia leads the Ivy League in shots on goal and shots on goal per game, with 68 and 7.56 respectively. Brown’s main scoring threat is Abby Carchio, who has five goals so far, the second most in the league. Maddie Temares leads the Columbia offense with three goals and seven points so far this season.

Field Hockey: The Light Blue (5-3, 1-0 Ivy) will take on the Big Red (2-6, 0-1 Ivy) on Sunday at 12:00 pm in a home match. Columbia is ranked third in the league along with three other 1-0 teams: Harvard, Princeton, and Penn. The Blue and White’s tough offense, led by Jennifer Trieschman, will face off against Cornell goalie Maddie Henry, who’s third in the league in saves per game with 5.86. Trieschman has 17 points on the season and seven goals. Helping her is Katharine Cavanaugh, who has four assists so far this year.
