Staunch Penn defense leads Quakers to share of Ivy League title

Associated Press

BOSTON -- The University of Pennsylvania clinched at least a share of the Ivy League title, defeating Harvard 17-7 on Saturday.

The Quakers (7-2, 6-0) withstood a late charge from the Crimson, stopping them on three consecutive plays within the 5-yard line.

Pennsylvania ended the drive, stopping Harvard (6-4, 5-2) quarterback Colier Winters at the goal line on fourth down with 2:40 left to play to get the ball back.

An early second half touchdown from Winters to Chris Lodritch was the only blemish on a Quaker defense that has allowed just 14 points in their last 18 quarters of play.

Despite driving rain throughout the entire game, Kyle Olson and Keiffer Garton combined to go 20-for-32 for 181 yards and one touchdown for the Quakers. Garton also led the Quakers on the ground with 37 yards, while Olson scored Penn's second touchdown on a 1-yard run.
