Penn State Men’s Soccer Star Peter Mangione Earns Weekly Awards

Peter Mangione had one heck of a weekend.

The Penn State men’s soccer captain was recognized for his play this weekend with two weekly awards. Mangione earned the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award and was named to the College Soccer News Men’s National Team of the Week.

Mangione scored three goals in two games this weekend. The first two came against West Virginia, a nationally ranked opponent who posed a threat to the Nittany Lions’ undefeated record at home. Mangione got Penn State on the board with a header to tie the game before later sinking a penalty shot that would be the decisive goal.

He would also score a penalty kick in the Nittany Lions’ 3-1 win over George Mason, a goal that would set Penn State up for its second win of the season.

Mangione and the Nittany Lions will take on Princeton at home in their next game. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. this Friday, September 9.
