Penn State Men’s Soccer Falls to St. Francis in Double OT

Penn State’s men’s soccer team fell to St. Francis (Pa.) last night at Jeffrey Field in double overtime, 1-0.

The Nittany Lions had several opportunities on offense, with forwards Eli Dennis and Mark Wadid leading the way with three shots each. Midfielders Owen Griffith and Drew Klingenberg recorded two shots, but were unable to score. Goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton was tested twice on the night – he saved the first attempt from the Red Flash, but was beaten in the 102nd minute by St. Francis midfielder Ryan Byers.

St. Francis’s defense stifled the Nittany Lions on the evening, with goalkeeper Daniel Valicak making four impressive saves to halt the Nittany Lion attack en route to a clean sheet. Byers scored the game’s lone goal during the second overtime, and forward Nick Kolarac led the Red Flash with four shots on goal.

The performance was far from lackluster from the Nittany Lions, with the team recording several chances and impressive play all across the board. Penn State fought all game, but in the end, St. Francis had a little more left in the tank. This loss drops the Nittany Lions to 6-3-1, while St. Francis improves to 7-2-1.

Penn State travels to Bloomington to take on Indiana on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
