Yahr scored a late goal in the 82nd minute to salvage a tie against Lehigh on Monday evening, then came back with a pair of markers against the Quakers. She found the back of the net in the 39th minute to give the Lions a 2-1 lead going into halftime, and after Penn had tied the match at 2-2 in the 53rd minute, wasted no time in putting Columbia back on top to stay with her goal in the 55th minute.
For the season, Yahr has a team-high eight goals which ranks third in the league. She has totaled 18 in her brief career, which stands ninth all-time at Columbia.
The Lions, who are tied for first place in the Ivy League with six points (2-1 record), return to action on Tuesday, Oct. 13 as they travel to Marist for their last non-conference tilt of the year. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
