Getting two pins and a technical fall along the way, No. 16 Princeton opened the Ivy League schedule Friday night with a 27-12 win at Harvard.
Princeton's third-ranked Patrick Glory started the match with a first-period pin of Nolan Hellickson at 125, and the Tigers were in front the rest of the way.
Harvard won both bouts in the 140s to pull within 9-6, and after fourth-ranked Quincy Monday won by decision at 157, the Crimson answered with a decision from 17th-ranked Philip Conigliaro at 165 to make it 12-9 for the Tigers.
From there, Princeton won three straight matches, all with bonus points, to break it open. Kevin Parker's shutout technical fall at 174, Travis Stefanik's major decision at 184 and third-ranked Patrick Brucki's first-period pin at 197 sealed the win for the Tigers.
Harvard's 10th-ranked Yaraslau Slavikouski had a major-decision win at heavyweight to close the match and make the teams' combined five Intermat-ranked wrestlers 5 for 5 on the night.
Princeton will complete the first Ivy weekend with a 2 p.m. match Saturday at Brown.
