MATTAPOISETT, Mass. - Sunday's play was rained out at the Ivy League Match Play event at The Bay Club, leaving the Penn men's golf team as co-champion of the event with Yale.
The Quakers had advanced to Sunday's final against the Bulldogs after defeating Cornell (3-1-1) and Harvard (3-2). In match play, golfers compete hole by hole, and the golfer who wins the most holes wins the match.
The Harvard match came rife with drama, as the Quakers and Crimson were tied at two matches apiece. With those four matches complete, senior Bryant Williams was extended beyond the regulation 18 holes in his match, but on the second extra hole he rolled home a 12-foot putt for birdie to clinch the win for Penn.
Columbia and Harvard tied for third, Dartmouth and host Princeton tied for fifth, and Brown and Cornell tied for seventh.
Penn will close out the fall portion of its schedule Oct. 26-27, competing at the ODU-SeaScape Intercollegiate in Kitty Hawk, N.C.
