UNIVERSITY PARK — Ashtin Klingler scored twice as the Penn State field hockey team won its seventh game in a row with a 4-3 victory over Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
Kelsey Amy also scored a goal and assisted on one of Klingler’s tallies, Jenna Chrismer also had a goal and Hannah Allison and Whitney Reddig each had assists in the victory. No. 6 Penn State (10-2, 2-0 Big Ten) dominated the game with a 30-14 advantage in shots.
“I thought that our strikers did an amazing job,” said head coach Char Morett, who earned her 400th career win on Friday. “Especially in the first half, they put great pressure on. I think that that was one of the reasons we were able to come up with great scoring opportunities. ... I think we came away (from this weekend) with great confidence. I think we saw some great play from our team in terms of defense. And we need to just feel that confidence and build upon it.”
Rachael Mack scored twice and Leslie Smith once for the Wolverines (6-4, 0-1).
Ayla Halus made nine saves in goal for Penn State, which travels to Northwestern on Friday.
Erin McNulty made four saves for the shutout. The Nittany Lions visit Ohio State on Thursday.
