NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Penn Women’s Lacrosse 10-7 Win Over Dartmouth On May 5 To Capture 2013 Ivy League Tournament Title
History did not repeat itself. Much like it did last year, Penn opened up an early lead on Dartmouth in the Ivy League Tournament championship game. Unlike 2012, Penn did not allow the Big Green to come back in the game, putting the clamps on Dartmouth’s secondary scoring in a 10-7 win to claim the school’s second Ivy League Tournament championship and earn an automatic bid to Penn’s seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament.
The Class of 2013 opened its Penn careers with an Ivy Tournament crown, and members of that group were instrumental in the win. Caroline Bunting had four goals, tying her career high and leading all Penn players in the game. She was 2-for-2 on free positions, part of a dominant day on the line for the Quakers. Fellow seniors Maddie Poplawski (two goals) and Meredith Cain (one goal, one assist) saw to it that the Class of 2013 accounted for 75% of Penn’s scoring in the game.
Penn was aggressive in the attack zone all game long, drawing 29 fouls from the Big Green and earning six free position attempts. Penn was good on five of those six eight-meter attempts, including 3-for-4 in the first half.

For the second time in as many years, the Dartmouth women’s lacrosse team will play in the Ivy League Tournament Championship Game. This time it will be thanks in large part to the play of senior Hana Bowers in Friday’s semifinal match-up against Princeton at Franklin Field.
Bowers, a 2013 First Team All-Ivy League player, scored a free-position shot with 1:22 left in double overtime that gave her team an 11-10 victory over the Tigers, sending the third-seeded Big Green to the finals Sunday at noon against the hosts and top seed from Penn.
The final game of the weekend will serve as a rematch from last year’s championship that Dartmouth won, 6-4, over the Quakers. Penn advanced to Sunday’s tilt with a 10-5 victory over Cornell in the second semifinal. In four seasons of Ivy League Tournaments, Penn and Dartmouth have played for the crown three times (2010, 2012, 2013).
The game-winner was Bowers’ fifth of the day and her sixth point after also adding an assist on the first marker of the afternoon.

Dartmouth scored the first goal but after that it was all Penn. The Quakers went on to win 11-2 in this pivotal Ivy League matchup. Highlights are brought to you by Prodigy Launch.
With the win, the 18th-ranked Quakers finish their Ivy League season at 3-3; while the rest of the Ivy League finishes up conference play next weekend, Penn has the bye. So what did its win on Saturday do for its Ivy Tournament chances? It kept them alive.
Penn’s Ivy League Tournament hopes rest squarely on next Saturday’s Yale-Harvard game, which will face off at 2 p.m. at Harvard Stadium. If Yale wins, the Quakers are in the Tournament as the No. 3 or 4 seed (that would be determined by the outcome of the Cornell-Princeton game, also being played next Saturday); if Harvard beats the Bulldogs, however, the Quakers are out.
The two goals that Penn allowed on Saturday were the fewest allowed by the Quakers in a game since March 5, 2002 (an 11-2 win over Saint Joseph’s). The last time Penn held an Ivy League opponent to two goals? Try March 20, 1999 in a 7-2 win over Yale.
