Penn State Hockey Defeats Robert Morris 5-4

The four game winless drought is finally over.

The Nittany Lions pulled out a much needed win in Pittsburgh Friday night after defeating Robert Morris (0-5-1) 5-4. Five different players scored for Penn State and goaltender Matthew Skoff turned aside a career-high 48 shots in the win. Penn State now moves to 2-3-1 on the year.

Robert Morris got on the board first when Cody Wydo scored on a power play five minutes into the game to give RMU the early edge. However, Skoff was able to hold his ground from there on out as the score was 1-0 going into the first intermission. RMU outshot Penn State 19-8 in the first period.

The Penn State offense got going in the second as forward Eric Scheid notched a goal two minutes into the period to tie the game at one. Defensemen Luke Juha and forward Tommy Olczyk then added goals themselves within two minutes of each other to give the Nittany Lions a 3-1 edge. However, Wydo was able to score again and Penn State went into the second intermission leading 3-2.

RMU was able to tie it up quickly in the third as Wydo buried a penalty shot to make it 3-3. Penn State got a power play chance shortly after and forward Casey Bailey was able to capitalize to give the Nittany Lions a 4-3 lead. Defenseman Mike Williamson added on to the lead with another power play goal, which was all Penn State needed. Wydo scored again for RMU with 12 seconds left, but it wasn’t enough as the Nittany Lions were able to pull out the 5-4 win.

Penn State returns to action again this Friday when they face Sacred Heart at Pegula.
