Penn softball travelled north this weekend, splitting double headers at both Harvard and Darmouth.

After the 2-2 weekend the Quakers are just 11-14 overall, but a solid 6-2 in Ivy play.

Penn lost the first game 10-0 on Harvard’s Soldier Field but won the nightcap 5-4.

In game two of the twinbill, Harvard pushed a run across the plate in the first inning to grab a 1-0 lead. But Penn retaliated in the second inning.

With the bases loaded and nobody out, the Quakers took the lead with a little help from the Crimson pitching.

A wild pitch scored one, a baulk plated a second, and after that the Quakers added another three that inning, giving them the lead they needed to secure a victory.

In game one, Harvard’s Rachel Brown got early run support and went the distance. The complete game shutout was her seventh win of the year. She struck out 11 Quakers and allowed only five hits and two walks.

Penn sophomore Chelsea Ott (2-5) gave up eight runs, four earned, in 2.2 innings of work.

The next day, a double-header against Dartmouth (6-18, 5-3 Ivy) once again resulted in a split.

Ott rebounded to lead Penn to a 3-2 win in a complete game effort. However, the Quakers dropped the second game to Dartmouth 10-1 in five innings.
