Goalkeeper Ben Berg and his fullbacks have still not allowed more than one goal in a game, though Friday’s lone tally handed No. 22 Penn its first loss of the season.

Playing in the Ivy League/Big East Classic, Penn was upset 1-0 by Villanova (3-2-1) on an eighth-minute goal by Daniel Gonzalez. Missing from Penn’s dominant defense was senior Jake Levin, who did not play Friday.

Despite seven shots on goal, the Quakers and their so-far potent offense couldn’t slip one past ‘Nova keeper Chris Bresnahan.

Another quick first-half goal put Penn in a hole Sunday at Georgetown, but the Quakers rebounded in the second-half, pounding the Hoyas for a 3-1 win.

Penn improved to 5-1-0 after sophomore Travis Cantrell tied the match in the 52nd minute, and freshman phenom Stephen Baker put in another two — his fifth and sixth of the season.

While senior Berg allowed one goal again Sunday, he still earned six saves to collect the win. Georgetown fell to 2-3-1 on the season.
