Penn men's soccer moves to No. 20 in RPI


Junior Forrest Clancy's free kick goal isn't the only highlight for Penn men's soccer this week.

The Red and Blue moved up to No. 20 from No. 45 in the NCAA's weekly RPI after a big 1-0 win over Cornell. The Quakers' four defeats have come against teams that are all in the top 31 in RPI, including No. 1 Washington, while the win over the Big Red is their only top 100 victory.

Penn is the highest ranked Ivy League squad, 13 spots ahead of Dartmouth. The Quakers' matchup with the Big Green is on the horizon, coming in Hanover on Oct. 18.

Cornell fell to No. 68. The Big Red had received votes in the NCAA coaches poll last week but the Quakers were able to end their four-match win streak.

Up next for Penn is No. 146 ranked Columbia. Meanwhile, Dartmouth's next opponent is winless Yale, a squad that has the second worst RPI in the nation.
