No. 24 WVU Falls to No. 6 Penn State, 2-1, in Double Overtime

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia's bid at a second straight Top-10 upset fell short, dropping a 2-1 decision to No. 6 Penn State, in double overtime Friday evening at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium in the WVU 90 Minute Classic.

 

An obstruction call at the top of the box with 82 second remaining, gave the Nittany Lions a free kick that was buried by All-American Christine Narin.

 

A crowd of 2,057 took in the match – the most-ever for a regular season contest, and second largest crowd ever for a women's soccer match.

 

            Penn State, 4-1-0 on the season, escaped as the Mountaineer offense became dangerous in the final 35 minutes of the match. Sophomore forward Kate Schwindel tied the game at 1-1 in the 85th minute, chipping a ball past goalkeeper Erin McNulty.

 

In the 55th minute, forward Tani Costa put Penn State on the board, finding the back of the net from six yards out on a pass into the middle from Kori Chapic.

 

            West Virginia, 2-3-0 on the season, recorded eight corner kicks on the night and was called for only nine fouls. Penn State attempted six corner kicks and charted 16 fouls.

 

            The match was delayed 25 minutes due to a Penn State injury with 11:34 remaining in the opening half. After a five-minute warm-up, the teams finished the half with no score.

 

            PSU held a slight 18-17 edge on shots, paced by Narin's 10 attempts.

 

            Schwindel took a team-best five shots for the Mountaineers.

 

Tournament action concludes at Dick Dlesk on Sunday, Sept. 2, as WVU battles Miami at noon, followed by No. 6 Penn State versus Pitt at 2:30 p.m.
