No. 6 Rutgers Defeats No. 3 Pennsylvania 11-9 to Advance to Championship Weekend

On a hot, sun-splashed afternoon at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium in Hempstead, Long Island, Rutgers and Penn punched and counter-punched, each team getting up off the mat when it appeared the game may be getting away from them. And just when you thought Rutgers’ magical run may be coming to an end, down a pair with nine minutes left in the match, the Scarlet Knights scored five consecutive goals and salted the game away.

Rutgers reached the semifinals and championship weekend for the first time in program history, heading to East Hartford, CT to face the winner of Cornell-Delaware on Saturday, May 28th (time TBA).
