Field Hockey Loses a Heart Breaker

Penn State Field Hockey has had their season come to an end yesterday after losing 2-1 in an overtime battle to Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The Lions got a career high 18 saves from Ayla Halus, who stepped up huge against the 4th ranked Orange. Her 18 stops tied the record for saves at  the PSU Field Hockey complex. Syracuse pressed all game long and out shot the Lions 23-13.

Syracuse pushed hard offensively the whole first half and was able to take a 1-0 lead at the break on an Amy Kee goal. Daneen Zug then scored of a rebound for Penn State to tie the game in the second half and force overtime.

Unfortunately for the Lions Syracuse came back seven minutes into overtime to win it on a Lindsey Conrad goal to move on.

The Lions finished the season 14-6 with a youthful squad.  They return all four of their all-conference selections next season and look to build on this year’s success.
