No. 9 Penn State Women’s Soccer Ties Purdue 2-2 In 2OT

No. 9 Penn State women’s soccer drew with Purdue 2-2 in double overtime in its final home match of the regular season Friday night at Jeffrey Field.

Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions trail Ohio State for the top spot in the Big Ten by three points. If the Buckeyes lose to Indiana Wednesday in Columbus, Penn State could clinch a share of the regular season conference crown with a win at Wisconsin.

How It Happened

Maddy Williams opened the scoring for the Boilermakers in the 14th minute, scoring her team-high 11th goal of the season — good for second in the Big Ten. Purdue would take that advantage into the intermission, but the Nittany Lions responded late in the 64th minute as senior Elizabeth Ball provided the equalizer.

However, Williams became Purdue’s all-time leading scorer in the 74th minute, passing Jessica Okoroafo (2005-09) with the 36th goal of her career to make it 2-1. Penn State substituted in as many offensive weapons as possible, and Laura Freigang finally broke through to tie the match at 2-2 in the 87th minute, forcing overtime for the third straight game.
