Penn is the champion of the Ivy League during a season in which any of the four teams that made the Ivy League tournament had a legitimate chance. 

Goalie Patrick Burkinshaw was lights out again, making 16 saves in a 16-9 win over Yale after finishing with 20 in Penn’s semifinal win over top-seeded Brown. The Virginia transfer’s 36 saves are a new Ivy League tournament record. He is the USA Lacrosse Magazine Division I Men’s Player of the Week for his insane weekend.

The Quakers scored two goals before halftime and five unanswered goals to start the third quarter to break open the game after it was tied at 4. The Bulldogs never recovered from the 7-0 run. Penn punctuated the third quarter with Ben Smith’s buzzer-beater following a pair of Burkinshaw saves in the final minute.
