No. 11 Penn State Women’s Soccer Loses To Wisconsin 1-0

No. 11 Penn State women’s soccer dropped its regular-season finale Wednesday night, falling to Wisconsin 1-0 in Madison.

Erica Dambach’s Nittany Lions finished the year with 21 points in Big Ten play, tying Rutgers for third place in the conference. Ohio State secured its first outright title in program history thanks to a 2-1 win over Indiana.

How It Happened

Wisconsin’s Cameron Murtha scored what proved to be the game-winner in the 52nd minute, as the Badgers held Penn State scoreless for only the third time all season. Head coach Paula Wilkins’ squad earned its sixth Big Ten victory of the year thanks to a strong offensive showing against the Nittany Lions.

Wisconsin finished with a 6-2 advantage in shots on goal, making things difficult for redshirt junior goalkeeper Rose Chandler. Despite an all-out attack down the stretch, Penn State couldn’t break through to tie the match. The Nittany Lions (10-4-3) will need to regroup before the postseason gets underway this weekend.
