PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania men's lacrosse team scored the opening goal in its game against No. 3 Brown Saturday at snowy Franklin Field, but it was all Bears after that as they sprinted to a 17-6 win.
Brown responded to Reilly Hupfeldt's goal just 2:22 into the game with the next 11 tallies, seven in the first quarter and four in the second. Simon Mathias finally ended the Penn drought with an unassisted score late in the first half, but it was 11-2 at the break. Brown then reeled off the first five goals of the third quarter, making it 16-2 and putting this game to bed.
Tyler Dunn scored twice for Penn, while Mathias finished with a goal and an assist. Kevin McGeary and Joe Licciardi also scored along with Hupfeldt, while Nick Doktor had one assist. At the other end, Reed Junkin made nine saves.
The stats were surprising, given the score. Penn outshot Brown, 50-42, and won 17 of the game's 26 faceoffs. However, Jack Kelly was superb in goal, making 15 saves while allowing just four goals before giving way to Acie Newton.
Penn returns to action next Saturday, hosting Harvard around its Alumni Day festivities at 3 p.m.
