Nittany Lions Split Big 10 Opening Weekend

Penn State Field Hockey finished up their first two Big 10 matches over the weekend, going 1-1 to put their season’s overall record at 6-4.

The #14 ranked Penn State squad started the weekend off strong on Friday with a 1-0 win over Indiana. Although the score was close all the way through, Penn State dominated the stat sheet, even out-shooting the Hoosiers by an amazing 28-3 margin. Penn State’s loan goal came in the 14th minute of action when freshman Lauren Purvis found the net and gave the Lions the lead they would never relinquish. Sophomore goalkeeper Alya Halus also continued her strong play as she recorded her 4th shutout of the season.

As well as Penn State played against Indiana, they were unable to keep that play up in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Michigan on Sunday. Michigan scored one goal in each half to put the Lions down. Penn State did have 11 shots on the goal, led by two each from Kelsey Amy and Lauren Purvis, but was unable to find the net.

Penn State will look to bounce back from the tough defeat this Saturday at home vs. Iowa.

Upcoming schedule:

Oct. 2nd- Home vs. Iowa at 12 p.m.

Oct. 3rd- Home vs. Monmouth at 12 p.m.
