The University of Pennsylvania’s head coach of men’s lacrosse, Mike Murphy, has announced the Quakers’ 2014 schedule. The Quakers will face another daunting slate that features eight teams ranked in the Inside Lacrosse preseason poll. Penn — ranked 11th in the Inside Lacrosse preseason poll — will open with the defending NCAA champion, face two of the other three semifinalists from last year’s tournament, and meet five 2013 NCAA teams in total.
“We are very excited about our 2014 schedule,” said Murphy, whose program boasted the No. 1 strength of schedule following the 2012 season and the No. 2 SOS following last season. “We have added a playoff team in Towson, along with St. John’s who has one of the best attack units in the country. So we will again have a very challenging road ahead of us this spring. We want to find out how good we can become, and the best way to do that is to play the best teams out there.”

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.

With the calendar flipped to the postseason, Penn turned to its trademark stifling defense to earn a third trip to the Ivy League Tournament championship game via a 10-5 win over Cornell at Franklin Field.

The top-seeded Quakers benefitted from 12 Lucy Ferguson saves and eight caused turnovers, thrice holding the Big Red to goalless droughts of over 14 minutes in the game. Ferguson split her saves evenly between the two halves, highlighted by three in succession over a span of 1:51 after the Big Red had taken an early 1-0 lead.

After Cornell opened the scoring, Penn went for the next three goals, opening a 3-1 lead midway through the first half. Meredith Cain – who is arguably the most dominant player in Ivy League Tournament history with 11 goals and 14 points over six career games – scored on a free position 7:13 into the game to tie proceedings at 1-1. Five minutes later, Tory Bensen would give the Quakers a lead they would not relinquish on a low shot following a dodge from behind the net.

Just passed the midway point of the first half, Courtney Tomchik scored her only goal of the game on a pretty double dodge from the top of the zone. After faking out her second defender, Tomchik shot on the fly to give Penn a 3-1 lead.

NCAA Lacrosse: Denver Men’s Lacrosse (4-1) Tops Penn 15-12 On March 2

Denver Men's Lacrosse vs Penn

Led by a seven-goal performance from sophomore Wes Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) the University of Denver men’s lacrosse team defeated the Penn Quakers 15-12 in front of 1,968 fans at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Berg’s seven goals tied DU’s Division I single-game record that is held by associate head coach Matt Brown. It was also Berg’s seventh career hat trick. Also turning in strong performances were senior Eric Law (Centennial, Colo.), who finished with two goals and a career-tying four assists for six points, and senior Colin Scott (Ridgefield, Conn.), who record a career-high seven assists.
“We were a little erratic,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “I have to give Penn a lot of credit. We thought we had a great week of practice and that we prepared well for them, but they are as energetic and non-giving up of a team as I’ve ever seen. They just kept coming at us. I thought we had really good second and third quarters. Berg really stepped up for us today.”
Sophomore Eric Adamson (Anaheim Hills, Calif.) netted his second hat trick of the season, while junior Jeremy Noble (Orangeville, Ontario) finished with two goals and an assist. Senior Cameron Flint (Georgetown, Ontario) scored one goal and sophomore Michael Pirone (Bethesda, Md.) and Sean Cannizzaro (Cazenovia, N.Y.) both tallied an assist each.
