Women’s Soccer Wins Big Against Purdue In Mack Brady Game

The 7th ranked women’s soccer team took down Purdue last night at Jeffrey Field, 6-1, in a game honoring the life of Mack Brady, an avid Penn State soccer fan who passed away on Dec. 31, 2012, and the son of Schreyer Honors College Dean Christian Brady.

The Nittany Lions started the night off early with a goal from Raquel Rodriguez, who scored in the sixth minute of the match. Purdue responded quickly, scoring seven minutes later to tie the score 1-1.

Penn State responded fifteen minutes later with a header from Kori Chapic, making the score 2-1. Purdue helped the Nittany Lions by scoring in their own goal, pushing Penn State’s lead to 3-1 before the end of the first half.

The Nittany Lions came out strong in the second half, scoring ten minutes apart from one another. Tani Costa scored first with help from Emily Hurd in the 53rd minute. Maya Hayes scored her 11th goal of the year by beating a Purdue defender and scoring from five yards out ten minutes later.

Purdue fought on, but Kindrah Kohne scored the final goal of the contest in the 77th minute. Her strike from twenty yards out was her first of the season.

The dominating offensive performance was not the only highlight on the field last night. Goalkeeper Britt Eckerstrom was rarely tested, as the defense held Purdue to just one shot for the entire game.

To honor Brady, apparel was being sold throughout the stadium with proceeds benefiting the “Mack Brady Memorial Men’s Soccer Fund at Penn State,” which provides an endowment to Nittany Lion goalkeepers for recruitment, equipment, scholarships and other needs. Penn State’s men’s soccer team also honored Brady earlier in the season when they took on California.

The 8-1-1 Nittany Lions are back in action this Sunday at home in the “Kick for the Cure Pink Game” against Indiana.
