Women’s Soccer Has On-and-off Week

To quote the ever-wise Katy Perry, “[The Nittany Lions women’s soccer team were] Hot ‘N Cold” this past week, exploding on offense one game while turning around and not finding the net in the next.

Last Wendsday night, Danielle Toney scored twice, Maya Hayes scored in her third straight game, and Hayley Brock and Taylor Schram both added goals in a 5-1 rout of Bucknell. The win snapped a five-game losing streak for the ladies and it looked like a break-through as scoring has been at a premium throughout the season so far. Yet this burst of offense would only be short-lived.

The Lady Lions took 28 shots on Sunday against Dartmouth, but did not find the back of the net one time as they fell to Dartmouth, 1-0 at Jeffrey Field. Krissy Tribbett played a great game between the pipes, but a miscue on one shot in the 60th minute cost her and the team at least a point in the standings. It was a still a great week for Tribbett, who allowed no goals in the Bucknell game.

Penn State is now 2-6-1 on the season and begins Big Ten play this weekend. Hopefully they play more like they do in their teenage dreams this Sunday.

Upcoming Schedule
Sunday vs. Michigan State, 1:00 p.m.
