No. 9 Men’s Soccer Defeats Penn 2-1 With Late Goal

The No. 9 men’s soccer team fought hard for its victory last night on the road against the University of Pennsylvania, winning 2-1 in the “Battle of the Penns.”

The momentum in the match did not look like it was on the Lions side all night. The first goal of the match did not come until the 62nd minute when Penn State’s Eli Dennis scored with an assist from Connor Maloney to take the lead 1-0. The Quakers responded nine minutes later and tied it up at 1-1 with just under 20 minutes left to play.

Penn State had multiple opportunities to score late in the game but could not capitalize until the 84th minute. Mason Klerks struck what looked to be the game-winning goal from twenty-three yards out but it was deflected before being headed in by Shane Campbell to give the Nittany Lions a 2-1 lead.

“This one was a battle,” said Penn State head coach Bob Warming. “But the goals and win were beautiful. This group finds a way. They’re incredible.”

With the win, the Nittany Lions ended Penn’s five-match unbeaten streak and extended its streak to four road match wins in a row.  The Nittany Lions are now 9-1-1 in its past 11 matches dating back to a September 13th tie against then-ranked No. 5 California.

The Nittany Lions continue their three game road stretch with its final Big Ten regular season game at Ohio State on Saturday at 7 p.m. Penn State already clinched the regular season title.
