The third installment of the University of Pennsylvania men's lacrosse team's 2019 saga with Yale University didn't just live up to expectations. It exceeded them. The Quakers and Bulldogs played a game that had 37 goals. There were 13 ties and six lead changes. For the second time in the three games, there was overtime. Unlike the first two meetings, though, Penn was not victorious. After defeating the Bulldogs on the way to Ivy League regular-season and Tournament titles, the Quakers met their comeuppance in the NCAA Championship quarterfinal round with a 19-18 loss at Rentschler Field. So Penn's season ends with a 12-4 record as the Quakers lost for the first time since March 2. Yale (14-3), the defending NCAA champion, moves on to a semifinal date with top-seeded Penn State next Saturday—in Philadelphia. Yale's Jack Tigh ended up the hero on this day. One second, he was in possession of the ball but on the ground, a pair of Penn defenders all over him. Next thing you knew, he was popping up, spinning out of trouble, and firing the winning shot past Reed Junkin's right shoulder to put this game to rest. Yale got off to a quick start in its first-round game last weekend against Georgetown, and the Bulldogs needed just 27 seconds to go in front on Sunday as John Danigellis beat his man on the left post for an unassisted tally. Penn got it back, Simon Mathias rifling a lefty shot home to extend his goal-scoring streak to 36 games and his point-scoring streak to 59. Adam Goldner gave the Quakers the lead with an unassisted effort that started behind the goal, but Yale needed just 22 seconds to make it 2-2 as Luke Eschbach finished a Matt Brandau feed on the doorstep. Mathias scored again after that to make it 3-2, a lead that lasted 1:25 before Tigh bounced a shot past Junkin's right shoulder to tie it 3-3. The teams traded goals again, Yale's Matt Gaudet making it 4-3 but Mitch Bartolo tying it up at 4-4. After that, though, the Bulldogs went for two in a 32-second span as Jackson Morrill beat Junkin and then Gaudet rifled one home from a low angle. That forced Penn head coach Mike Murphy to take a timeout, and after Yale was called for a violation on the faceoff Tyler Dunn made it 6-5 with his patented jump shot from about 12 yards out. A critical play occurred at the end of the first quarter. Penn held for a final shot, but Sam Handley's effort came a little quickly and was saved. Before you knew it, Yale was off on a fast break and Will Weitzel was firing a shot that beat Junkin at the five-hole with just 2.8 seconds left. The junior long pole's first goal of his career gave the Bulldogs a 7-5 lead after one. Penn went on the power play to start the second quarter when Yale was whistled for its third faceoff violation, and the Quakers took advantage as Handley found Dylan Gergar through traffic and the freshman bounced home a man-up goal. It took nearly six minutes, but Yale eventually got the goal back when Morrill scored unassisted. At that point, Penn went on a three-goal run to turn its two-goal deficit into a lead. Dunn started it with a nice backhanded effort in front, and then Joe Licciardi surprised everyone when he put on the brakes near the left post and underhanded a shot inside the far post. Sean Lulley got into the act next, putting Penn up 9-8, but Yale tied the game for the sixth time when Lucas Cotler raced down the right side and fired a shot home. Penn went back in front with 3:40 to play, Mathias zigging and zagging his way around the left side before he found Bartolo in front and the sophomore bounced it in just under the crossbar. Yale also was called for unnecessary roughness after the goal, but after winning the faceoff the Quakers could not take advantage of the man-up situation. Back at even strength, Yale tied the game a seventh time when Morrill finished at the doorstep off a nice feed from Brandau. However, Penn needed just 23 seconds to go back in front, Kyle Gallagher winning the faceoff and going all the way to put it home. Dunn nearly made it a two-goal lead just before the half, but his effort rang the post and so the Quakers went to the locker room up, 11-10. Yale opened the second-half scoring with a pair of unassisted goals to go up 12-11, but Goldner rocketed home his own unassisted tally to tie the score at 12-12. Yale again went in front, only for Bartolo to bounce home a Licciardi feed to tie the game at 13-13. Then Lulley finished a B.J. Farrare feed in transition to put Penn up, but Yale responded and the third quarter ended with the score tied for the 11th time, 14-14. The fourth quarter started with Penn taking a 15-14 lead when Goldner rocketed an upper-corner shot off a Lulley feed, but Yale quickly got it back when Cotler bounced home a Tevlin feed in transition. That combination meshed again with 10:49 left, taking advantage of some defensive breakdowns which left Cotler wide open in front for an easy finish that put the Bulldogs up 16-15. It looked like Penn might be going on the power play, but before the whistle was blown a Penn player also was penalized, and so the Red and Blue ended up down a man for 30 seconds. The Quakers were able to fend it off, but then Yale went up by two goals with 7:07 left when Morrill found Blandau on the doorstep for a quick-stick finish. Penn got one of the goals back after the media timeout, Lulley taking a pass from Bartolo and firing a shot between two diving Yale defenders into the upper corner to make the score 17-16. Dunn had two chances to tie it; his first jump-shot effort bounced off a defender's helmet and Yale was closest when it went out of bounds, and then after a defensive stop by the Quakers another Dunn jumper was saved. Instead, it was Yale who again went up by two goals with 3:13 left when Cotler finished a Morrill feed in front. An odd situation occurred with 1:11 left when Yale tried to take a timeout but instead was called for illegal procedure. Given new life, Penn made it a one-goal game with 46.7 seconds left when Mathias found Dunn on the doorstep and then took a timeout ahead of the ensuing faceoff. After a scrum that eventually ended with the ball in Farrare's stick, the Quakers took their final timeout with 35.0 left. Penn's first chance came out of Bartolo's stick and was wide. With just 10 seconds left, Mathias raced from behind the goal, came out past the right post, and quick-handed a lefty shot that seemed to catch the Yale goalie off-guard. Tie game for the 13th time in the afternoon, 18-18. Though only 4.4 seconds remained after Mathias' goal, the regulation drama wasn't over. Yale's T.D. Ierlan, the reigning Ivy League Player of the Year, won the faceoff and raced down the field. However, his shot on goal was deemed to be a hair after the final horn (although Junkin saved it, for good measure). Ierlan then won the overtime faceoff, but Junkin stopped Gaudet's spinning wrong-hander on the doorstep. Penn got the ball over the timeline just in time, but then a bad pass ended with a Quakers player inadvertently stepping offsides to get the ground ball for an unforced turnover. Yale nearly lost the ball twice on its winning possession. The first came when a pass was deflected, leading to a ground-ball scrum. A Bulldogs player picked it up, and before he lost it again Yale smartly called timeout. After that, Tigh had the ball but fell as he ran across the top, drawing two men who kept him down for a few seconds. It wasn't long enough. Mathias finished the day with three goals and two assists. Bartolo, Lulley, Dunn and Goldner also had three goals each. For Yale, Morrill had four goals and three assists, while Cotler scored four times and Gaudet and Danigellis scored three times each. Junkin finished the day with 14 saves, giving him 52 in three games with Yale this year.
