Salina Williford’s Late Goal Lifts No. 7 Penn State Past Iowa 1-0

Salina Williford spurred No. 7 Penn State women’s soccer to victory Friday night in Iowa City, tallying the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute.

The redshirt senior midfielder from Wayne, Pa., headed home a Frannie Crouse cross to give the Nittany Lions their second straight 1-0 win in Big Ten play.

How It Happened

The Nittany Lions and Hawkeyes were locked in a defensive stalemate for the duration of the first half at the Iowa Soccer Complex, as neither team could break the 0-0 tie heading into the intermission. Williford would come off the bench to score her first goal of the season and extend Penn State’s conference record to 3-0.

Penn State topped the Hawkeyes in shots, 13-8, and took all four of the night’s corner kicks on its way to a clutch victory. Erica Dambach’s bunch proved yet again it doesn’t mind matching its opponent’s physicality for 90 minutes.
