Women’s Soccer Wins Three in a Row
The 13th-ranked women’s soccer team continued its winning ways against Bucknell Tuesday night in Lewisburg, netting six goals and holding Bucknell to a shut out.
The six goals were scored by five different players with Mallory Weber accounting for two goals.
The scoring started early with Raquel Rodriguez assisting Weber, who shot into the top corner of the net just before the second minute. 15 minutes later, Rodriguez assisted Emily Hurd in a one on one shot with the Bucknell goalie from 15 yards out.
Just three minutes later, Weber knocked in her second goal of the night. The women’s team was on fire when they scored again a minute and 10 second later when Raquel Rodriguez had her third assist of the game when she passed the ball to Maya Hayes who had a breakaway resulting in her sixth goal of the season.
Up 4-0 on Bucknell, most of the starters were taken out of the game. With four minutes left in the half, Corey Persson tricked a defender and shot into the left side of the goal.
When Penn State returned in the second half, the scoring slowed down. Liv Brandy rounded out the night with a header off a corner kick from Erin Kehoe.
Penn State has two away games this weekend — Oklahoma State on Friday and Tulsa on Sunday.
