Eight was great for Alex Condon as she scored eight times to power No. 10 Penn past No 18 Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field, 10-7, today.
Condon’s eight goals were one away from tying the program record for goals in a game (9, accomplished three times and not since 1997) and one away from tying the Ivy League record – also nine – which has only been accomplished seven times previously.
Haley Schweizer (St. Mark’s-DE) had five goals, three groundballs, two draw controls and a caused turnover for the Blue Jays. Katy Junior (Radnor) had two groundballs and one caused turnover to lead the Penn defense.
Condon did the work on the attacking end, and Britt Brown was a rock in goal for the Quakers. One week after posting 14 saves at Delaware, Brown followed up with a new career-high of 16 stops – most in a game since 2012.
