PRINCETON, N.J. -- The 2012 Ivy League women's soccer season kicked off on Friday, Aug. 31, and over the course of three days the Ancient Eight combined to go 7-4-1 against quality opponents.

Brown, Harvard and Penn remain undefeated after week one, as the Bears and the Quakers have matching 2-0-0 records and Harvard is 1-0-0. Brown has yet to give up a goal on this young season thanks to a pair of shutouts, 3-0 at BIG EAST foe St. John's and 1-0 over New Hampshire. Penn won a pair of home games, defeating James Madison (2-1) and Temple (2-0). Harvard's season-opening victory came at the expense of Massachusetts (2-0).

Dartmouth (1-1-0) took part in the Central Florida Tournament in Orlando, Fla., falling to No. 9 UCF, 2-0, before bouncing back to beat South Florida, 2-1. Yale is also 1-1-0 after opening its season with a 2-1 road win over Hartford before falling at Stony Brook by the same score. In the Princeton Invitational, the Tigers took No. 15 Wake Forest to the wire, eventually falling, 2-1, and then tied Colgate in an offensive onslaught, 4-4.

Princeton senior Jen Hoy (Sellersville, Pa.) tallied four goals on the week, including one against No. 15 Wake Forest and three scores in the Tigers' 4-4 tie with Colgate. Hoy notched her second career hat trick in the tie with Colgate. She also accomplished the feat against James Madison on Sept. 12, 2010.

Hoy took home her second Player of the Week award after also earning the honor on Sept. 12, 2011.

Hoy's Weekly Stats

Yale freshman Paula Hagopian (West Hartford, Conn.) contributed in both of her team's games, tallying three points on a goal and an assist on the week. Her first career assist came at a crucial moment for the Bulldogs, who were tied with Hartford, 1-1, with 26 seconds remaining, when Hagopian found senior Kristen Forster for the gamewinner. In Yale's next game, Hagopian scored her first career goal off an assist from the 2011 Rookie of the Year, sophomore Melissa Gavin.

Hagopian becomes the fourth Bulldog to earn Rookie of the Week in the past two seasons, joining sophomores Meredith Speck (Sept. 5), Gavin (Oct. 10, Oct. 31) and Elise Wilcox (Oct. 17).
