Field Hockey Falls Against UConn

The Penn State field hockey team gave fifth-ranked Connecticut all they could handle on Friday, but came up short with a 2-1 loss.

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.

Upcoming schedule:

Sunday: vs. Lock Haven, 12 p.m.
Wednesday: vs. Lafayette, 6 p.m.
