[PENN STATE-WEST VIRGINIA] Any doubts about Penn State's potency were put to rest as the Nittany Lions scored three goals in the first eight minutes that set the tone for a 5-0 shutout win over No. 25 West Virginia at the Penn State Invitational Friday evening.

"That's the start you always hope for, that's a dream start," Lions coach Erica Walsh said of the early 3-0 lead. "Finishing is what we did so well today: three chances, three goals and is a credit to these players tonight."
 
The Nittany Lions took a 1-0 lead just 62 seconds into the contest off the foot of midfielder Maddy Evans for the second fastest goal in Penn State history.
 
Penn State doubled its lead in the fifth minute on a goal from midfielder Jess Rosenbluth. Forward Maya Hayes made it 3-0 on assists from Taylor Schram and Erin McNulty.
 
The loss snapped West Virginia's three-match win streak at Jeffrey Field.
 
The Nittany Lions completed their scoring with a pair of goals in the second half on through balls up the middle. Schram added a goal in the 65th minute and Hayes netted her second of the match in the 67th minute.

Schram's three-assist evening set a new personal record.
