Penn State Field Hockey wins two in weekend series




On the final full weekend of the regular season, Penn State (12-4, 5-2 Big Ten) defeated Ohio State (7-8, 1-5 Big Ten) and Michigan State (7-7, 0-7 Big Ten) on the road.

The offense was the highlight of the weekend, with Penn State beating opponents 5-0 and allowing just one shot on target on Sunday.

Game One: Penn State 4, Ohio State 0

At the start of the game, the attack was slow on both sides of the field. Both Penn State and Ohio State struggled to find the net.

At the end of the first, Penn State was awarded the first penalty corner, but nothing came of it. Less than two minutes later, Sophia Gladieux scored with some help from Anna Simon to make it 1-0. This score remained until halftime.

There was not much action from either team in the third quarter. However, the Nittany Lions really started to heat up in the fourth.

Gladieux, assisted by Jemma Punch, struck again at 12:17 to make it 2-0. This offensive drive continued as Penn State’s Bree Bednarski scored at 6:24 and Mackenzie Allessie scored again for the Nittany Lions with just five seconds left.

The Nittany Lions were very efficient with shots going 4-for-9 while allowing the Buckeyes only one shot in the shutout win.

Penn State then closed the game, leaving Columbus with a 4-0 win.

Game Two: Penn State 1, Michigan State 0

Unlike Friday’s game, Sunday’s game was eventful from the start. Even though no goals were scored, there were a total of eight and five shots on target and five penalty corners respectively in the first fifteen minutes. Kelsey Love also earned a green card.

The second quarter brought more intensity from both teams. Penn State struggled with two penalty corners and one shot on target, but the score remained 0-0 en route to halftime.

After halftime, Penn State’s offense only escalated when it defeated Michigan State 14-0 and awarded seven penalty corners. Michigan State goalkeeper Monique Jardell kept the Spartans in the game by saving six shots.

The fourth quarter was again the pinnacle of action in this match as Anna Simon scored her 11th goal at 11:53, assisted by Mackenzie Allessie, to make it 1-0.

Brie Barraco ended the game with a save in the final five minutes, and the final minutes of the game went scoreless, giving the Nittany Lions the 1-0 win.

Sophia Gladieux | midfield

In another great performance on Friday by the sophomores, she scored two goals and was a force in defense. Gladieux has scored 15 goals this season alone. In addition, she impressed with more than half of Penn State’s shots on Sunday.

What’s next

The Nittany Lions close their regular season schedule on Friday, October 29 at 6 p.m. in a home game against Michigan.
