Box Score (PDF)

WASHINGTON, D.C. - After allowing an early goal for the second time in two matches over the weekend, No. 22 Penn found its offense after the break, putting three goals on the board in the second half for a 3-1 win at Georgetown as part of the Ivy League/Big East Classic.

Penn went 1-1-0 in the Classic and improved to 5-1-0 overall. Georgetown dropped to 2-3-1 overall.

After Travis Cantrell scored in the 52nd minute off a deflection to tie the match, freshman sensation Stephen Baker scored twice for the Red and Blue while adding an assist. The first came just 2:31 after Cantrell's equalizer, as he combined with Cantrell and Aaron Ross in the box and fired home the winner from five yards out.

Baker's second came on a breakaway in the 83rd minute, as he came down the left side and coolly put it pastthe oncoming goalkeeper.

Georgetown's Tommy Muller had given the Hoyas the lead in the 10th minute, when he headed a Seth C'Debaca corner kick into the lower left corner. It was Muller's first goal this season. Unlike Friday night, though, Penn was able to equalize and overcome that early deficit.

In a back-and-forth affair, Penn outshot its hosts 16-15.Ben Berg had six saves -- three in each half -- to collect the victory. At the other end, Georgetown keeper Matthew Brutto had five stops.

Penn returns to action next weekend by participating in a tournament up at Princeton. The Quakers will face Adelphi on Friday at 5 p.m., then Richmond on Sunday at noon.
