NCAA Lacrosse: Ivy League Men’s Lacrosse Makes Statement That “It’s Back” With Two Big Wins In NCAA Tournament As Cornell Rolls Over Maryland 16-8 And Yale Tops Penn State 10-7 On May 11-12
NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Penn Women’s Lacrosse 10-7 Win Over Dartmouth On May 5 To Capture 2013 Ivy League Tournament Title
History did not repeat itself. Much like it did last year, Penn opened up an early lead on Dartmouth in the Ivy League Tournament championship game. Unlike 2012, Penn did not allow the Big Green to come back in the game, putting the clamps on Dartmouth’s secondary scoring in a 10-7 win to claim the school’s second Ivy League Tournament championship and earn an automatic bid to Penn’s seventh consecutive NCAA Tournament.
The Class of 2013 opened its Penn careers with an Ivy Tournament crown, and members of that group were instrumental in the win. Caroline Bunting had four goals, tying her career high and leading all Penn players in the game. She was 2-for-2 on free positions, part of a dominant day on the line for the Quakers. Fellow seniors Maddie Poplawski (two goals) and Meredith Cain (one goal, one assist) saw to it that the Class of 2013 accounted for 75% of Penn’s scoring in the game.
Penn was aggressive in the attack zone all game long, drawing 29 fouls from the Big Green and earning six free position attempts. Penn was good on five of those six eight-meter attempts, including 3-for-4 in the first half.
NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Penn Women’s Lacrosse 10-5 Win Over Cornell In Ivy League Tournament Semifinals On May 3
With the calendar flipped to the postseason, Penn turned to its trademark stifling defense to earn a third trip to the Ivy League Tournament championship game via a 10-5 win over Cornell at Franklin Field.
The top-seeded Quakers benefitted from 12 Lucy Ferguson saves and eight caused turnovers, thrice holding the Big Red to goalless droughts of over 14 minutes in the game. Ferguson split her saves evenly between the two halves, highlighted by three in succession over a span of 1:51 after the Big Red had taken an early 1-0 lead.
After Cornell opened the scoring, Penn went for the next three goals, opening a 3-1 lead midway through the first half. Meredith Cain – who is arguably the most dominant player in Ivy League Tournament history with 11 goals and 14 points over six career games – scored on a free position 7:13 into the game to tie proceedings at 1-1. Five minutes later, Tory Bensen would give the Quakers a lead they would not relinquish on a low shot following a dodge from behind the net.
Just passed the midway point of the first half, Courtney Tomchik scored her only goal of the game on a pretty double dodge from the top of the zone. After faking out her second defender, Tomchik shot on the fly to give Penn a 3-1 lead.
NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Dartmouth Women’s Lacrosse 11-10 Double-Overtime Win Over Princeton In Ivy League Semifinals On May 3
For the second time in as many years, the Dartmouth women’s lacrosse team will play in the Ivy League Tournament Championship Game. This time it will be thanks in large part to the play of senior Hana Bowers in Friday’s semifinal match-up against Princeton at Franklin Field.
Bowers, a 2013 First Team All-Ivy League player, scored a free-position shot with 1:22 left in double overtime that gave her team an 11-10 victory over the Tigers, sending the third-seeded Big Green to the finals Sunday at noon against the hosts and top seed from Penn.
The final game of the weekend will serve as a rematch from last year’s championship that Dartmouth won, 6-4, over the Quakers. Penn advanced to Sunday’s tilt with a 10-5 victory over Cornell in the second semifinal. In four seasons of Ivy League Tournaments, Penn and Dartmouth have played for the crown three times (2010, 2012, 2013).
The game-winner was Bowers’ fifth of the day and her sixth point after also adding an assist on the first marker of the afternoon.
NCAA Lacrosse: Ivy League Video Highlights Of Pennsylvania Men’s Lacrosse (7-4) 11-2 Win Over Dartmouth (3-10) On April 20
Dartmouth scored the first goal but after that it was all Penn. The Quakers went on to win 11-2 in this pivotal Ivy League matchup. Highlights are brought to you by Prodigy Launch.
With the win, the 18th-ranked Quakers finish their Ivy League season at 3-3; while the rest of the Ivy League finishes up conference play next weekend, Penn has the bye. So what did its win on Saturday do for its Ivy Tournament chances? It kept them alive.
Penn’s Ivy League Tournament hopes rest squarely on next Saturday’s Yale-Harvard game, which will face off at 2 p.m. at Harvard Stadium. If Yale wins, the Quakers are in the Tournament as the No. 3 or 4 seed (that would be determined by the outcome of the Cornell-Princeton game, also being played next Saturday); if Harvard beats the Bulldogs, however, the Quakers are out.
The two goals that Penn allowed on Saturday were the fewest allowed by the Quakers in a game since March 5, 2002 (an 11-2 win over Saint Joseph’s). The last time Penn held an Ivy League opponent to two goals? Try March 20, 1999 in a 7-2 win over Yale.

Ivy League Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of #2 Cornell Men’s Lacrosse 14-12 Win Over Harvard On April 6
The Harvard men’s lacrosse team took a 12-9 lead over No. 2/2 Cornell with 9:48 remaining but succumbed to a late rally as the Big Red stormed back for a 14-12 victory Saturday afternoon in front of 3,043 fans at Harvard Stadium.
Cornell (10-1, 4-0 Ivy League) ended the day on a 5-0 run to overcome its deficit and remain unbeaten in Ivy League play. Conor Buczek and Rob Pannell began the flurry which was finished by Max Van Bourgondien who scored three straight goals in 1:46 to steal the win.
Chris Wojcik ’96, The Frisbie Family Head Coach for Harvard Men’s Lacrosse, discusses the upcoming season and what fans can expect to see out of the Crimson in 2013.
The Harvard men’s lacrosse team is putting in extra work this offseason to make sure it reaches its goals.
Injuries In Lacrosse: Ivy League Lacrosse Adopts “Concussion Prevention Recommendations” For Men’s And Women’s Lacrosse
The Ivy League presidents also accepted sport-specific recommendations, including:
- Coaches will designate 11 combined days in the fall and spring seasons in which body checking will not be permitted in practices.
- Only one full-contact practice per day will be permitted. • Coaches will place a greater emphasis on teaching proper hitting techniques in practice.
- The Ivy League office will work with the NCAA on specific issues that could potentially lower the incidence of concussion, including examining the possibility of more stringent consequences for penalties involving targeting the head as well as considering possible rules changes surrounding face-offs.
- Coaches will modify 10 spring practices to exclude stick-checking.
- Coaches will dedicate time during the beginning of fall practice and skill instruction season on teaching proper stick-checking technique.
- Each student-athlete will be required to attend at least one skill instruction session that focuses on proper stick-checking technique prior to the first fall practice.
- Other adopted recommendations centered on suggestions for minimizing accidental hits to the head during practices and continued assessment of officiating to address fouls involving hits (i.e., stick-checking) to the head and other dangerous play.
- Certified officials will attend one fall practice to emphasize adherence to safety rules and cardable fouls.
