Box Score

PHILADELPHIA (11/5/11) - Freshman Julian Griggs scored just five minutes into the game but Penn would come back and get two to defeat Princeton in men's soccer 2-1 on Saturday, Nov. 5 at Rhodes Field.

Senior Antoine Hoppenot sent the ball down the field and Griggs won a race to the ball and ripped a shot into the left upper 90 in the sixth minute, on the Tigers first shot of the game.

It would be more than 35 minutes before Penn would get its first shot, but the Quakers would convert it into a goal.

Jake Levin tied the game when he tucked the ball under the cross bar in the 36th minute. Princeton keeper Seth MacMillan was down in front of the net on the left side after he went to stop a free kick from Christian Barriero. The ball bounced back out to Levin and junior Matt Sanner ran to the goal line but Levin's shot was too high for Sanner to knock away.

Stephen Baker would tally the game winner in the 75th minute with help from Jonny Dolezal. Baker blasted a shot from the right touchline that went into the left side of the goal.

Penn had a 9-6 edge in shots and took one more corner than the Tigers, 7-6. Princeton was called for just two offsides, while the flag went up five times on Penn.

MacMillan made three saves in goal for the Tigers, while Tyler Kinn stopped four shots for the Quakers.

Princeton drops to 5-9-2 on the season and 1-4-1 in the Ivy League. Penn reached .500, at 7-7-2 and 2-4 in league play with its first win over Princeton since 2006.

The Tigers host Yale in the final game of the season one week from today, Nov. 12 at 3 p.m., on Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium.
