Women’s Soccer Ousted From Big Ten Tournament By Iowa

The 20th-ranked Penn State women’s soccer team lost to Iowa in the semi-finals of the Big Ten Tournament as the Hawkeyes shut out the Nittany Lions 1-0 on Friday.

The Lions fell to 14-6-1 on the season with the loss and now must wait for the NCAA Tournament, the seeding of which will be announced on Monday at 4:30 p.m.

Iowa broke the scoreless tie at the 18-minute mark with a goal from Melanie Pickert coming off of a corner kick by Bri Toelle who got the assist on the score.

Penn State pushed back in the second half, taking 17 shots to Iowa’s three but the Nittany Lions could not find the back of the net. Overall, Penn State outshot Iowa 25-14 and also led corner kicks 10-4, but the advantage on the stat sheet doesn’t always lead to a victory.

The Nittany Lions continued to make a push for a goal late in the game to tie it up. In the 80th minute, Raquel Rodriguez got a rebound and fired a shot that hit off of the crossbar to keep Penn State scoreless in a heartbreaker of a loss.

The Nittany Lions will have the fate of the rest of their season decided on Monday during the NCAA Tournament seeding. We will keep you posted when their first round matchup is determined.
