Lions Drop Quakers, Set Up Rematch With West Virginia

Tani Costa scored in the 71st minute and goalkeeper Krissy Tribbett added another shutout to this season’s resume as the Lady Lions soccer team beat the University of Pennsylvania’s team on Friday, 1-0 and moved on to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

After a back and forth first half which ended up scoreless, the Quaker defense began to show signs of tiredness which helped Danielle Toney slide into the goal area and sweep a pass to Costa, putting in her ninth goal of the year,  as Penn State improved their record to 11-3-0 in the first round of the NCAAs.

Penn State will now take on West Virginia, who beat Morehead State 2-0 in Friday’s other game in Morgantown. West Virginia is no stranger to the girls as they beat them 2-1 in overtime in the season opener on the very same field. Game time for Sunday is slated for 1 p.m.
