Lady Lions’ Season Ends At Feet Of West Virginia

Neither a little birthday luck from Coach Erica Walsh nor a valiant second-half effort from Penn State were good enough to overcome two first-half West Virginia goals as the Lady Lions’ season ended Sunday afternoon in Morgantown by a score of 2-5.

All three goals were scored in the first 45 minutes of play. Lady Mountaineers Drea Barklage and Megan Lewis scored two minutes apart early in the period to put WVU up 2-0 before 20 minutes had expired from the clock.

Senior Danielle Toney did want this to be her last game, though, and she made it apparent when she scored on a breakaway attempt in the 35th minute to cut the West Virginia lead in half.

Knowing their season was at the brink, the Lady Lions came out with even more intensity for the second half and were able to get off ten shots in the period. Unluckily for them, none were able to find the back of the net and their season came to a disappointing end in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Penn State ended their season with an 11-9-1 record.
