PHILADELPHIA - Tyler Guse scored midway through the second half as Yale, ranked 25th by the NSCAA, earned a 1-1 tie with Penn in an Ivy League game at Rhodes Field. Erik Geiger made six saves in goal for the Bulldogs, who are now 6-2-4 overall and 2-1-1 in Ivy play.
Alex Grendi put the Quakers (8-3-1, 2-1-1 Ivy) on top in the 56th minute when he curled a beautiful free kick that settled just under the crossbar. However, the Bulldogs were able to come back and tie things 10 minutes later when Guse stole the ball from a Penn defender and rifled home a shot from about 20 yards out. It was his second goal of the season.
"It was a tremendous game between two even teams," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. "Penn had us under some pressure early on, but then as the game went along we were very dangerous and created some excellent chances. Overall, it was a solid road performance."
Daniel Cepero had four saves in the Penn goal. The Quakers outshot the Bulldogs on the evening, 14-10.
It was the fourth tie of the season for the Bulldogs. The school record is six set in 1974.
Yale returns to action on Wednesday, hosting Hartford at 7 p.m. at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium.
