Women’s Soccer Ties Indiana 1-1 On The Road

Penn State (8-2-3, 4-0-2 Big Ten) took back to the road coming off a three-game homestand for a clash with the Hoosiers. Indiana (5-7-2, 2-3-1 Big Ten) hoped to break the Nittany Lions’ eight-game unbeaten streak, but couldn’t grab a win in a 1-1 draw.

How It Happened

The Nittany Lions got off to a quick start in this one. In the 8th minute, combination play from Salina Williford and Megan Schafer set up Frannie Crouse with an opportunity. Crouse powered her shot into the bottom right corner past Indiana keeper Sarah L’Hommedieu to make it 1-0 Penn State.

Penn State kept up the pressure, but struggled to find a second goal for the rest of the first half. Indiana would be the next to find the back of the net in the 42nd minute. A ball deflected off of Alina Ortega-Jurado for an own goal to equalize 1-1 going into the half.

Penn State continued to push forward, piling on 18 shots and forcing L’Hommedieu to make seven saves to keep the game tied. Indiana would make it through regulation and force overtime.

In overtime, the Nittany Lions had a number of opportunities. Charlotte Williams forced L’Hommedieu to make a save on the last play of the first overtime period, but that was the best Penn State could do. The game would end in a 1-1 draw.
