Penn, Lehigh, and Syracuse emerged as the winners Saturday in the Whitman's Sampler Independence Classic Lacrosse Tournament at PPL Park.
Penn defeated Villanova, 13-9, in the only match featuring two area teams. The Quakers (4-1), who had been looking to avenge last year's last-second loss to the Wildcats (1-4), fell behind by two in the first period before going on a tear. Nick Doktor and Zack Losco each scored three goals for Penn.
Lehigh got by Penn State, 12-10, in a matchup of two rising powers in the nightcap.
