Penn State Soccer Takes Care of Robert Morris

There was not much scoring going on last night at Jeffrey Field, as Mark Wadid’s laser from the penalty area in the 34th minute was all the Nittany Lions needed to overcome Robert Morris. A solid effort both offensively and defensively for Penn State, including a shutout from junior goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton, prevented Robert Morris from reducing the goal deficit.

Coach Bob Warming seemed pleased with his squad’s overall performance, especially the freshman, Wadid.

“He’s a goal scorer,” Warming said. “He’s got other things to learn about the game and that’s why he came here. I’ve had three guys who have led the nation in scoring and that’s why Mark came here so we can keep working on his game. He’s tremendous in front of goal.”

Wadid’s form has been great of late, and if he keeps up his aggressive play, expect to hear his name much more as the season progresses.

Wadid was not the only player showing some offensive prowess. Freshman Connor Maloney had a shot bounce off the crossbar at the very end of the game, while junior Jordan Tyler had two solid opportunities. Penn State also controlled the shooting in this contest with 17 shots to 6, giving the RMU defensive side fits. Fouls were a bit more even with Penn State leading in this category 15-12.

With a 3-2-1 record, this next stretch of games will prove to be very crucial. Jeffery field will play host to Duquesne this Sunday at 1 p.m. With more performances like this, look for the Nittany Lions to make some noise in the Big 10.
