Women’s Soccer Breaks Even Over Weekend

It was more of the same for Penn State women’s soccer this past weekend, picking up a win and a loss while still leaving fans scratching their heads as they try to figure out who this team really is.

On Friday night, the Lady Lions took on No. 15 Minnesota at Jeffrey Field and played one of their best all-around games of the season. While most of the first half was played pretty evenly, Minnesota scored late in the period on a header from Steph Brandt to put the Gophers up one. But Penn State ratcheted up the defense in the second half and got goals from Taylor Schram and Maddy Evans three minutes apart to secure the 2-1 upset win over Minnesota.

After the big win Friday night, big things were expected on Sunday afternoon as the girls returned to the field to take on Wisconsin, a team that had never won at Jeffrey. With the score 2-1 late in the second half, freshman Maya Hayes netted her fourth goal of the year to tie the game up at two in the 78th minute. But only 44 seconds later, a long pass to Badger forward Kodee Williams allowed her to sneak behind the Penn State defense to put home the game-winner and Wisconsin got their first win on Penn State’s turf, 3-2.

After this weekend, Penn State’s record stands at 6-8-1 with a 4-2-0 Big Ten mark.

Upcoming Schedule
Sunday at Illinois, 2:00 p.m.
