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.


NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Penn Women’s Lacrosse 10-5 Win Over Cornell In Ivy League Tournament Semifinals On May 3

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: Ivy League Video Highlights Of Pennsylvania Men’s Lacrosse (7-4) 11-2 Win Over Dartmouth (3-10) On April 20

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.
