Maya Hayes had a phenomenal opportunity in the 70th minute, flicking the ball towards the net from eight yards out on a cross from Mallory Weber, but Hobbs made a diving save to preserve Minnesota’s lead.
Kori Chapic and Tani Costa each had chances in the final minutes but were unable to capitalize as Hobbs made saves on both attempts.
Penn State moves to 10-2-1 overall and 4-1-0 in
