PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The University of Pennsylvania women’s soccer team was victimized by a penalty kick call Saturday, and that proved to be the difference as the Quakers fell to Brown, 1-0, at the newly named Stevenson/Pincince Field.
The field was re-named earlier this week in honor of Phil Pincince, who prior to the season announced that this would be his last after 39 years as head coach of the Bears. Riding the emotion of the day, Brown got the win and improved to 6-7-2 overall.
Penn fell to 6-4-5 on the season, 1-2-3 in Ivy play. The Quakers will close out the season next Saturday, hosting Princeton at 5 p.m. The Tigers clinched the Ivy League title and accompanying NCAA Championship berth on Saturday, beating Cornell while second-place Harvard was tying Dartmouth.
The PK came after a Penn defender was called for tripping a Brown player with the ball along the end line to the left of the goal. That left Carly Gould and Penn goalkeeper Kalijah Terilli, and gould won the matchup as her shot beat Terilli for the only goal of the day.
It was another unfortunate result for Penn, which outshot Brown on the day 16-7 -- the 13th time in 15 matches this season the Quakers have outshot their opponent. Brown goalkeeper Christine Etzel made seven saves to preserve the clean sheet, while at the other end Terilli was called upon to make two stops in the Penn goal.
