Oct. 26, 2003
PHILADELPHIA - Jana Halfon scored an unassisted goal with 3 minutes, 1 second left in the second half to snap a 1-1 tie and lift Yale to a 2-1 victory over Penn at Franklin Field. The Bulldogs improve to 8-6 overall and 3-2 in the Ivy League with the victory. The Quakers, who had won seven straight games, fall to 9-5 overall and 3-2 in Ivy League play.
"It's phenomenal that we were able to come to Penn and end their seven-game winning streak," said Yale head coach Ainslee Lamb. "We continue to take the steps we need to reach our goals."
After a scoreless first half, Fran Gardner tipped in a pass from Chrissy Hall with 11 minutes remaining in the second half to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead. Penn, though, tied it on Liz Lorelli's school record 16th goal of the season with 4:05 remaining. Halfon answered with the game-winner just over a minute later.
Krissy Nesburg made two saves to earn the win in goal for Yale. Elizabeth Schlossberg finished with six saves for the Quakers. The Bulldogs outshot Penn 12-6.
