All’s well that ends well.  Penn women’s soccer has adapted that mindset as they look to close out the 2016 season at Princeton this Saturday. After battling back against Brown during Homecoming, the Quakers (9-3-3, 2-2-2 Ivy) managed to secure a draw and one point to stay ahead of the fifth-place Tigers (10-4-2, 2-3-1). Although there will be no postseason for Penn this year, the intensity is as high as ever. For Senior Paige Lombard, this historic rivalry is more than enough motivation for her squad.

The adage normally goes that you win some, and you lose some. But when you are Penn women's soccer, apparently you also tie some. After 110 minutes, there was nothing to separate the Quakers (9-3-3, 2-2-2 Ivy) and Brown (8-2-5, 3-1-2), as the two teams fought to a 1-1 draw this Saturday at Rhodes Field. The day started off with a Senior Day pregame ceremony honoring Penn's six seniors, where the players were recognized on the field with their families for their contributions to the program.

Despite what was described by Coach Fuller as “arguably the team’s best performance of the season,” the men’s soccer team still lost 1-0 to West Virginia (8-5-1) on Tuesday night. The Quakers (4-5-5) came into this game riding high after the decisive 3-0 victory against Yale.

A person like Van Dyke needs no artificial stimulant to prepare for an Ivy League matchup. She feeds off the pressure. But even for a tenured coach with her track record and experience, a little pre-match anxiety can show up every once in awhile.

It was a good weekend on the field for Penn Athletics, and that's translating to hardware off the field as the Quakers enter the week. On Monday, football's Justin Watson was named Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week, while men's soccer's Dami Omitaomu won City Six Rookie of the Week honors.

There’s something in the psyche of the athlete that’s unleashed when the rain starts falling, the sun disappears, the temperature plummets, and the field lights illuminate puffs of breath from red-faced players.

After conceding four goals to both Villanova and Dartmouth during a three-game losing skid, Penn men’s soccer righted the ship on Saturday against Yale.

Forget about home-field advantage. On the road is where Penn women’s soccer thrives, extending their unbeaten stretch to 4-1-0 while traveling.

They say the best team doesn’t always win. They were right. They also say that the scoreboard doesn’t tell the whole story.

Consistency at the top is the key for any team with hopes for a title. However, for Penn women's soccer, staying consistent within the Ivy League is becoming a challenging task.

Senior Sports Editor Nick Buchta: There’s almost an embarrassment of riches to pick from on Penn women’s soccer — almost all of them freshmen!

Championship game. It might not be the most widely publicized title in collegiate sports, but under the radar, Penn men’s soccer is one win away from capturing its first City 6 championship since _____. The City 6, which consists of Penn, Drexel, La Salle, Saint Joseph’s, Temple, and Villanova, has been crowning a yearly champion in several sports since _____.

The word “warrior”, if books and movies are to be believed, conjures the image of a battle-ready, iron-clad behemoth armed to the teeth. If you ask members of Penn men’s soccer, their more realistic version comes in the form of a 6’0 forward and Pennsylvania native named Alec Neumann. This reputation has been well-earned over the past four seasons of Quaker soccer, and Neumann has emerged as the team’s undisputed leader and central offensive cog in his final season.
