Field Hockey Knocked Out in Semis of Big Ten Championship

The Penn State Field Hockey team was defeated 4-3 in overtime of the semi-finals of the Big Ten Championship. This came after a 4-0 win over Indiana in the first round.

Against Indiana, Lauren Purvis and Kelsey Amy came out strong to score two goals in the first half, and Jessica Longstreth’s two second-half goals secured the win.

Penn State’s defense also came up big for the win. Ayla Halus and the defense got their sixth shutout of the season and helped the Lions move on.

The first round win pushed the team on to the semi-final round to face a Michigan team who had already defeated them once this season, 2-0. Unfortunately for the Lions, this match-up result was no different.

The Lions had a very balanced offensive attack against the Wolverines, with three players scoring a goal. After a back and forth battle all game long, Penn State took the lead when Amy scored with less than ten minutes left in the game. Michigan wasted no time responding, and forced overtime a little over three minutes after Amy’s goal.

As hard as Penn State played, they were unable to pull off the win because Michigan scored just four minutes into the extra session.

Penn State will be hosting Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA tournament this Saturday.

Upcoming Schedule:

NCAA first round-vs. Syracuse at 11:30 a.m.
