Field Hockey Falls Against UConn
UConn had the advantage early on, peppering Penn State’s goal with 11 first-half shots. The teams went into the half scoreless, though, mainly due to redshirt sophomore, Ayla Halus, making 10 saves .
All three goals came in quick succession in the second half. UConn scored first at 47:34, with the Nittany Lions tying it up at 50:11 with a goal from junior Jessica Longstreth. However, UConn scored only 16 seconds later and won the game 2-1.
Penn State fell to 1-2 with the loss and will look to improve their record with two home games next week.
