Women’s Soccer Tops Wisconsin 2-0 In Big Ten Tournament

The third-seeded Penn State women’s soccer team opened the Big Ten Tournament with a 2-0 win over sixth-seed Wisconsin on Wednesday afternoon.

The Nittany Lions had two shots in the first ten minutes of the match but failed to score on either attempt. In the 11th minute, Emily Hurd crossed the ball to Taylor Schram, who scored her fifth goal of the season from the center of the box to put Penn State ahead, 1-0.

Wisconsin didn’t have its first shot of the match until the 20th minute, which went wide. A minute later, Hurd had control of the ball again when she served up a left-sided cross into the center of the box to Tani Costa, who scored the second and final goal of the match to solidify the win for Penn State. Nittany Lion goalkeeper Britt Eckerstromm recorded six saves.

Penn State faces seventh-seed Iowa in the semifinals on Friday at noon. Penn State previously lost 3-2 to Iowa this season in Iowa City. Iowa upset Michigan, the No. 7 team in the nation, 1-0 in the first round of the tournament. The Hawkeyes are 14-5-1 overall and 5-5-1 in the Big Ten this year.
