Women’s Soccer Defeats Bucknell 3-1

Tuesday night, the fourth-ranked Penn State women’s soccer team defeated in-state foe Bucknell at home to improve its overall record to 11-2 on the season.

It was a slow start for the Nittany Lions who did not score until the end of the first half when freshman Raquel Rodriguez found the back of the net in the 39th minute. Toni Costa set up the goal by attempting a shot in the box but was penalized by Bucknell’s keeper. Rodriguez was able to convert on a penalty kick to give the Lions the lead.

Maya Hayes scored a goal in the 57th minute with an assist from Costa that went off the fingertips of Bucknell’s goalie. Bucknell fired back with a goal in the 60th minute. Redshirt freshman goalie Britt Eckerstromm allowed with her fifth allowed goal of the season but also made four saves and would not allow another one the rest of the way.

Hayes, who was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week this past week, struck again in the 73rd minute with an assist from sophomore Emily Hurd as the goal brushed through the keeper’s hands leading to a 3-1 victory. Penn State faces Big Ten opponent Indiana on Sunday at home at 1 p.m. and will look to win their seventh straight.
