Penn 27, Georgetown, D.C. 7

WASHINGTON -- Chris Wynn returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, freshman Matt Hamscher ran for 102 yards and a score in his Penn debut and the Quakers defeated Georgetown 27-7 on Saturday.

Andrew Samson kicked two field goals and Luke DeLuca rushed for a touchdown for Penn (2-2), which won its second consecutive game. The Quakers improved to 5-0-1 all-time against Georgetown (1-4).

The Hoyas, whose Oct. 4 game at Colgate was canceled because of an outbreak of norovirus on the Georgetown campus, dropped their fourth straight. Georgetown fell to 2-19-1 all-time against Ivy League opponents.

Wynn exploded through a seam at his own 40-yard line and sprinted 88 yards for a touchdown on the opening kickoff. Samson kicked a 36-yard field goal, helping Penn to a 10-0 lead after the opening quarter.

A 2-yard sweep left by Hamscher completed a 15-play, 84-yard march that consumed 7:54, putting the Quakers up 17-0 with 12:28 remaining in the first half.

Georgetown drove to the Penn 5-yard line on the ensuing series, but Keerome Lawrence mishandled a shotgun snap on first-and-goal, and the Quakers' Jake Lewko recovered the fumble.

Samson nailed a 37-yard field goal and Tony Moses' interception set up a 2-yard plunge by Luke DeLuca with 35 seconds remaining in the quarter.

The Hoyas averted a shutout on Collin Meador's 1-yard touchdown reception with 6:03 left in the game.
