Field Hockey Advances To Big Ten Semis With 3-1 Win Over Indiana

Penn State (14-2, 6-2 Big Ten) opened its Big Ten Tournament on Thursday as the Nittany Lions took on Indiana in the quarterfinals. The Hoosiers (8-11, 3-5 Big Ten) were hoping to avenge a loss to Penn State from a week earlier, but the Nittany Lions’ offense was too much in a 3-1 Penn State win.

How It Happened

Penn State opened the scoring with seven minutes left in the first half. Brooke Birosik received the ball on the right flank and crossed it back post to Gini Bramley to put the Nittany Lions ahead.

Aurelia Meijer almost added a second goal for Penn State on a penalty corner, but her shot that went in the goal was disallowed because her direct hit went above the backboard on the lower part of the goal. The Nittany Lions had a 1-0 lead after the opening half of play.

Junior forward Shay Cannon scored minutes into the second half for her 11th goal of the season. Moira Putsch knocked the penalty corner to the top of the circle, where Katie Dembrowski fired the direct hit toward goal and Cannon got a touch on it to put it over the keeper and make it 2-0 Penn State

Indiana got one back quickly after the Nittany Lions’ second. Elle Hempt was set up off the penalty corner and buried the shot past Penn State’s Jenny Rizzo to make it 2-1.

Penn State came right back shortly after and got its lead back up to two. Gini Bramley scored her second between the legs of the onrushing goalie as Penn State went up 3-1. This capped off a span of three minutes where the Nittany Lions and Hoosiers scored three goals with the Nittany Lions winning by that final score.
