No. 13 Penn State Women’s Soccer Beats Maryland 1-0 In OT

No. 13 Penn State women’s soccer downed Maryland 1-0 in overtime Sunday as sophomore Laura Freigang tallied the game-winner in the 95th minute.

Following a draw with Rutgers 0-0 in double overtime Thursday, Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions finished off their road trip with a clutch victory in College Park.

How It Happened

Penn State dominated the Terrapins in shots, 15-1, but couldn’t find the back of the net in regulation for the second match in a row. Redshirt junior goalkeeper Rose Chandler earned the shutout for the Nittany Lions — their ninth of the season.

After playing a grueling 110 minutes against the Scarlet Knights, Penn State had enough in the tank to take out the overmatched Terps. Junior midfielder Marissa Sheva logged her second assist of the year on Freigang’s bench-clearing goal.
