April 11, 2009

Box Score

Providence, Rhode Island - Quakers' senior Alex Weber scored three goals, including what proved to be the game-winner with 4:10 remaining, to lift Penn to a 7-6 Ivy League win over #11 Brown, snapping the Bears' eight-game winning streak at cold, windy and rain-swept Stevenson Field. The 11th-ranked Bears fall to 9-2 overall and 2-1 in Ivy play, while Penn goes to 3-7 overall and 2-4 in the Ivy League.

Brown rallied from a 5-3 third quarter deficit to tie the game, 5-5, with fourth quarter goals by senior Kyle Hollingsworth, followed by senior Brady Williams, scoring with 8:52 left in the game.

Penn attackman Drew Collins gave the Quakers the lead for good, 6-5, taking a pass from Garvey Heiderman with 6:08 remaining. Collins scored his third goal of the game with 4:10 remaining to play to lift the Quakers to a 7-5 advantage.

Brown's Reade Seligmann scored a man-up goal with 1:55 remaining to cut the Quakers lead to 7-6, but that was as close as the Bears would get.

The Quakers defense was able to shut down Bears' attackman Thomas Muldoon, who went without a point for the first time in 29 games, dating back to 2007.

Bears' All-American Goalie Jordan Burke was outstanding in the muddy conditions, making 15 saves. Freshman Joe Hegener came up big for the Quakers with 11 saves.

Hollingsworth netted two goals and handed out two assists to lead the Bears, while Williams scored two goals and sophomore Andrew Feinberg and Seligmann added one goal each.

The Bears travel to Boston, Massachusetts on Wednesday, April 15 to battle Harvard in a key Ivy League match-up. Game time is 7:00 p.m. at Harvard Stadium.
