Women’s Soccer Drops A Pair in Portland

Freshman Maya Hayes scored her first two career goals this weekend.

The Lady Lions came back from the West Coast with more baggage than they had hoped for in the form of two more losses on the season, as they dropped both games in the Nike Portland Classic over the weekend.

Freshman Maya Hayes tallied her first career collegiate goal on Friday against Washington, but Penn State could not overcome the Huskies’ two first-half goals and suffered a 2-1 defeat. Christine Nairn was credited with the assist on the Hayes goal and had two chances in the final three minutes to tie the game up, but was just off the mark both times.

Penn State returned to the field Sunday to take on #4-ranked Portland and they did not fare much better. Hayes had her second goal in as many games to put the Lions up 1-0 in the 40th minute, and Nairn connected on her second score of the year to give the Lady Lions a 2-1 just after halftime. The Lady Pilots showed why they sit undefeated at 8-0-0, though, as they scored three unanswered goals to close out the game and escape with a 4-2 win.

Penn State is now 1-5-1 on the season and hope to turn things around as they return home for a pair of games before the Big Ten season starts. Make sure to come out tonight as the team will honor military personnel, police officers, and firefighters as part of Heroes Night.

Upcoming Schedule:
Tonight: Bucknell, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday: Dartmouth, 1:00 p.m.
