Women’s Soccer Opens Conference Play With Win

Christine Nairn scored her third goal of the season on Sunday

Penn State’s defense of a 13th straight Big Ten title couldn’t have gotten off to a better start Sunday as the Lady Lions shut out the Lady Spartans of Michigan State, 1-0, in front of the second largest Big Ten Conference game crowd in the history of Jeffrey Field.

The ladies’ first shutout of the season came courtesy of goalkeeper Kelsey Tribbett’s four-save performance and Christine Nairn’s third goal of the season. Nairn’s 20th minute penalty kick was brought about after forward Maya Hayes was taken down inside the box. Great defensive play the rest of the game brought the girls a much-needed win after 90 minutes.

While their non-conference play has been nothing to brag about over the past couple seasons, the Lady Lions know to turn it on once the Big Ten schedule starts. The win over Michigan State makes them unbeaten (9-0-1) in their last ten conference games dating back to last October. Let’s hope the streak continues as the quest for lucky number 13 continues this weekend.

Upcoming Schedule
Sunday Oct. 3 vs. Ohio State, 3:00 p.m.
