There was never any doubt.

As has been the case during every one of No. 5 Penn’s eight consecutive wins, a total team effort led to a victory as the Quakers dominated Dartmouth, 22-6, to win the program’s first outright Ivy League championship since 1986 and cap only the second undefeated Ivy League season in program history and first since 1986.

11 different players scored at least one goal and 14 had at least one point as the Quakers (8-3, 6-0 Ivy) extended the nation’s longest winning streak to eight games.

Before the game, Penn’s 10 seniors were honored as part of Senior Day festivities, and then that group put on a show. Co-captain Simon Mathias (3g, 4a) had a career-high seven points on three goals and four assists while fellow co-captain Tyler Dunn tied his career high with six points on a goal and five assists. All told, the seniors pitched in 16 of Penn’s 39 points in the game while goalkeeper Reed Junkin capped his Senior Day with seven saves and five goals allowed in 45 minutes of work.

The Quakers had already clinched a piece of their first overall Ivy League title since 1988 when they were co-champions, and had secured the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Ivy League Tournament with their win last weekend at Harvard. There was still work to do, and the Red and Blue put the game away early, ensuring there would be a celebration 35 years in the making.

Up next for the Quakers is a game against Vermont in Wilton, Conn. on April 27. Faceoff with the Catamounts is set for 1 p.m.

Notes To Know:
