The University of Pennsylvania used a career day from freshman Erin Barry to pull away from Lehigh, 17-9, in a non-conference game held on Ace Adams Field at Penn Park.
In her fourth collegiate game, Barry finished with six goals, four draw controls and five ground balls as she helped the Red and Blue improve to 4-1 overall this season.
Penn had a wide advantage in both shots (35-21) and draw controls (18-9), and used a 9-0 run started midway through the first half to break open a 2-2 tie and provide a comfortable margin to work with the rest of the way.
The Mountain Hawks netted the first goal of the game, but after Emily Rogers-Healion netted her first of four with just 3:17 elapsed the Quakers would never trail again.
Penn would lead by as much as 10 in the game after Barry connected on a free position with 22:20 left in the second half. The Mountain Hawks would keep the margin under 10, scoring five of the final seven goals.
