Early goals propel Penn to championship

[IVY LEAGUE: Men] Penn got goals from Nicky Yin and Duke Lacroix in the first 12 minutes to beat Harvard, 2-0, at Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium and clinch its first outright Ivy League title since the great team of 1972.

The title was the eighth overall for the Quakers, who pressed early and had chances from Lacroix and Alec Neumann in the first four minutes saved by Evan Mendez.

Shortly afterwards, Penn took the lead when Yin, a senior, scored his first collegiate goal with a laser to the top right corner.

Harvard's best chance came in the 90th minute when it was awarded a penalty kick but Kevin Harrington hit the post.
