Penn State Women’s Soccer Stomps Ohio State 5-1

The No. 8 Penn State women’s soccer team thrashed Ohio State by a score of 5-1 in the team’s home Big Ten opener at Jeffrey Field on Friday night.

Frannie Crouse opened the scoring for the Nittany Lions in just the third minute of the game after some great individual work from Mallory Weber. Penn State continued to control play throughout the first half, and in the 26th minute it was rewarded with a 2-0 lead. Sophomore Salina Williford capitalized on a mistake by the Ohio State defense and beat the keeper to double Penn State’s advantage.

Ohio State got on the board in the first minute of the second half, however, as Sydney Dudley headed home a rebound from a free kick to cut the Buckeye deficit in half. Whitney Church managed to restore the 2-goal lead for PSU just two minutes later, as she was able to take advantage of some chaos in the box following a free kick and volleyed the ball home.

Crouse added her second goal of the night from close range on an assist from Kori Chapic in the 65th minute, and Raquel Rodriguez tallied a goal in the 77th minute off a cross from Haleigh Echard that both closed the scoring for the evening as well as extended her scoring streak to four consecutive games. The win moves the Nittany Lions to 7-1 overall (3-0 in the conference), and their next game is on Tuesday at Jeffrey Field at 7 p.m. against Bucknell.
