UNIVERSITY PARK — The Penn State womens soccer team had no trouble bouncing back from an emotional loss Friday by rolling past Central Michigan 5-0 Sunday afternoon at Jeffrey Field.
Christine Nairn scored a pair of goals and assisted on another, freshman Mallory Weber found the net once again and Erin Kehoe and Jenna Kalwa also scored in the victory.
Penn State took command with four first-half goals, including three in less than five minutes. Weber scored the first tally at 22:12, heading in a cross from Nairn. The senior midfielder then netted her two scores, the first less than a minute later from 30 yards out and the second from 18 yards away at 26:46. Kehoes first career goal closed the first-half scoring a little over eight minutes later with help from Kindrah Kohne.
Kalwas score 11 minutes into the second half from long distance finshed the offensive outburst, and Erin McNulty and Britt Eckerstrom teamed up for the shutout, playing one half each and combining for seven saves.
The Chippewas outshot the Nittany Lions 21-11.
