No. 5 Penn State Field Hockey Knocks Off Cal 2-1

No. 5 Penn State (12-2) recorded its second win in two days against California (7-4) on Saturday, recording a 2-1 victory over the Golden Bears in Columbus, Ohio.

Shay Cannon opened the scoring 16 minutes into the game. Junior Katie Dembrowski then doubled the lead around the 39 minute mark to ensure the win for the Nittany Lions. Goalkeeper Jenny Rizzo also made three saves.

How It Happened

After falling behind 2-0, California was able to pull a goal back at the 44 minute mark. But, ultimately it was too little too late as the Nittany Lions proved to be too much for the Golden Bears.

California was completely unable to consistently pressure the Penn State defense. The Golden Bears were only able to register 4 shots over the course of the entire game. Leaving Rizzo with little to do.

The 2-1 score didn’t justify the dominance Penn State displayed. Heavily outshooting the Golden Bears 14-4, the Nittany Lions were kept at bay by California goalkeeper Danielle Mentink time and again. Had it not been for Mentink the score line most likely would have been much more flattering for Penn State.
