It was a game for the ages.

Visiting and 14th-ranked Penn overcame deficits of 7-0 (first quarter) and 9-4 after three quarters and surged back for a stunning 11-10 overtime victory over city rival St. Joseph’s University.

The game also featured a large amount of standout performances by Philly grads that dominate both rosters.

Nick Doktor scored on a brilliant individual effort with 51 seconds left in overtime to give Penn a 2-0 record.

Another star was photographer Rene Schleicher, who braved near-zero temperatures to shoot the entire game and produce these amazing pictures.
