No. 7 Penn State Women’s Soccer Ties Nebraska 1-1 In 2OT

No. 7 Penn State women’s soccer played Nebraska to a 1-1 draw in its second double overtime match of the season Sunday afternoon.

Junior midfielder Charlotte Williams ensured Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions (7-2-1) at least received a point on the road against the Cornhuskers.

How It Happened

Sophomore goalkeeper Amanda Dennis made her first start of the season to give Rose Chandler a rest on the second leg of the team’s Midwest road trip. She finished with six saves in the tie. Penn State took care of Iowa 1-0 Friday night thanks to Salina Williford’s header.

The Nittany Lions struck first in the 25th minute Sunday, as Williams tallied her second goal of the year to give Penn State a 1-0 lead. Senior forward Frannie Crouse picked up her fourth assist this fall on the play. However, lightning was also in the vicinity in Lincoln, forcing a nearly two and a half hour delay. The teams returned to the pitch in the 38th minute of the match, and Nebraska quickly went on the offensive.

The Huskers drew even with Penn State on senior midfielder Haley Hanson’s 45th minute goal, moments before halftime. Neither side could find the back of the net in the second half nor in either overtime period.
