Penn outlasts Yale for a 28-17 victory

Ryan Becker threw two first-half touchdowns to lead Penn to a

28-17 victory over Yale Saturday.

After allowing an early field goal, Penn (4-2, 3-0 Ivy) rattled

off 28 straight points. Becker found Kyle Wilcox from 29 yards out

to give the Quakers a 7-3 lead. Following a Yale (3-3, 1-2) fumble,

Becker connected with Conner Scott for another 29-yard score.

Spencer Kulcsar and Adam Strouss each added a rushing touchdown

in the third quarter. Kyle Wilcox paced the ground attack with 129

yards on 23 carries while Kulcsar finished with 85 yards on 18

carries.

Yale quarterback Morgan Roberts did spark the Bulldogs on a late

comeback, hitting Grant Wallace and Deon Randall for touchdowns to

cut the lead to 28-17 in the fourth quarter. After a successful

onside kick, Penn defensive back Sam Chwarzynski picked off

Roberts, ending the comeback.

Chwarzynski finished the game with two interceptions.
