BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Penn's defense allowed just 118 yards of total offense as the Quakers beat Columbia for the 17th straight time with a 21-7 win Saturday.

Columbia got the game's first points with a six-yard touchdown run by Marcorus Garrett in the first quarter, but that was all the scoring the Lions managed.

Penn (3-2, 2-0 Ivy) tied the game with a 22-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Becker to Mitchell King in the second and took a 14-7 lead with a 12-yard touchdown pass from Billy Ragone to Ty Taylor shortly before halftime. Spencer Kulcsar added a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth for the Quakers.

Columbia (0-5, 0-2) managed only 33 yards rushing and Kelly Hilinski went just 8 for 22 with 85 yards passing and an interception. The loss clinches Columbia's 17th consecutive season without a winning record.
