No. 8 PSU Women’s Soccer Defeats Santa Clara

No. 8 Penn State women’s soccer got a break last night against Santa Clara as an own goal was the deciding factor in the game. PSU (4-1-1) was struggling to provide offense, having been outshot in the game 18-4, trailing in corner kicks 10-4 and having 18 penalties to Santa Clara’s five.

PSU didn’t even get a corner kick opportunity until the 81st minute and of its four shots, only one was on goal. Accuracy was an issue for Santa Clara (1-1) as well, who had just four shots on goal despite registering 18 shots.

The lone goal came early on a cross by senior Payton Linnehan to senior Kate Weisner. While trying to break it up, a Santa Clara defender accidentally knocked it into their own goal. This all happened at the 14th minute of the game, allowing PSU to play from ahead for much of the game.

PSU goalie Katherine Asman made four saves. She has an .808 save percentage on the season thus far.

Penn State’s next game will be against Liberty this upcoming Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at home.
