Nittany Lions extend win streak to nine games
[WISCONSIN-PENN STATE: Women] No. 8 Penn State extended its winning streak to nine games with a 2-1 win at No. 25 Wisconsin
in a battle of Big Ten teams. The Nittany Lions used goals from seniors Tani Costa and Maya Hayes to improve to 10-1-1
overall and 4-0-0 in the Big Ten.
“Mentally, we were ready to play,” said Nittany Lion coach Erica Walsh. “We came out with
an incredible amount of energy and fight and put them on their heels. I thought that, in particular, our leaders were very good tonight.”
The Lions went ahead in the 31st
minute when Hayes beat a Badger defender and sent a through ball to Costa, who found the back of the net from just outside the box. They extended their lead to 2-0 just five minutes later as Hayes
buried a beautiful cross from Mallory Weber with a header from 10 yards out.
Rose Lavelle gave the
Badgers their first and only goal of the match in the 66th minute when she scored on a rebound from 10 yards out.
“Rose Lavelle is going to be a fabulous college
player,” said Walsh. “She has already proven to be one of the best players in the Big Ten.”
