Penn State Women’s Soccer Faces Biggest Test

It has been nearly a year since Penn State women’s soccer lost an overtime heartbreaker in Columbus to the much maligned Ohio State Buckeyes. Today, the 24th ranked Nittany Lions look to avenge that loss and stay undefeated at home when they take on Ohio State at 7 p.m. at Jeffrey Field. In what is undoubtedly the most important game of the regular season, Penn State finds itself one point behind the Buckeyes in the Big Ten standings. A win here by either team would add three points to their total and make them heavy favorites to win the conference.

The Nittany Lions are coming off an incredible week where they saw three straight victories without allowing a goal. Midfielder Ali Schaefer was named the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week and forward Maya Hayes continued her dominance by adding three goals to her NCAA leading fifteen goals.

Even if soccer isn’t your thing, it may still be worth checking out “The Jeff” tonight to cheer on the ladies. The match is consider a Code Blue Blast event where you can earn triple the points for the new Code Blue rewards program. The Park Avenue Army student section is sure to be at its best for the most significant game of the season. Most importantly of all, Rotelli’s will be providing free pizza on the lawn outside the stadium for all student attendees along with other freebies. Come early, be loud, and help Penn State move forward toward their fourteenth consecutive Big Ten title.
