Women’s Soccer Suffers Heartbreak in Columbus

One week after posting a 1-0 victory over Michigan in their Big Ten opener, the tables were turned on the Lady Lions this past Sunday as they dropped a gut-wrencher to Ohio State by the same score, this defeat coming in overtime.

The Buckeyes (8-2-1) and Nittany Lions (3-7-1) played a very even match throughout the first 90 minutes of play with both teams having opportunities to put the ball in the back of the net but ultimately failing to do so. Ohio State held the shot advantage 13-8 although they only had four shots counted as on goal.

The scoreless wall was busted through by Paige Maxwell, though, in the 96th minute as Penn State goalie Kelsey Tribbett misplayed a pass and Maxwell was able to tap the ball into the goal, giving Ohio State the victory. Buckeye goalie Rachel Middleman was certainly the MVP of the game, nabbing the shutout while making two saves.

Penn State plays away from home again this weekend and will hope to bring some momentum back with them if they want to contend for that 13th straight Big Ten title.

Upcoming Schedule
Friday at Northwestern, 8:00 p.m.
Sunday at Iowa, 2:00 p.m.
