If you’re looking for one word to sum up the final non-league game of the season for the Princeton football team, you could try “swarming.” Or “pounding.”

It depends on which side of the ball you wanted to mention.

Collin Eaddy ran for three touchdowns and, well, pounded Lafayette with 53 rushing attempts, and the Princeton defense, well, swarmed the Leopards all night long to lead the 19th-ranked Tigers to a 28-3 win in the 51st meeting between the teams. The victory improved Princeton to 4-0 on the season, with six straight Ivy League games remaining to be played, as well as 44-3-4 all-time against Lafayette.

Princeton has now won 14 straight.

“It was a very solid win for us,” said Princeton head coach Bob Surace. “We did the things we needed to do. We controlled the ball for most of the second half. Our defense was great. We have things we need to work on if we’re going to reach our goals, and we know what is in front of us the rest of the way.”
