Penn State women’s soccer: Nittany Lions boot Boston U.

September 7, 2013 

— Taylor Schram’s third goal of the season was the only scoring as the No. 14 Penn State women’s soccer team topped Boston University 1-0 Friday night at Jeffrey Field.

“I thought the first half was decent, we moved the ball and we created chances,” said Nittany Lion coach Erica Walsh, whose team improved to 3-1-1. “The second half was our best half of soccer this year and I thought the energy of our team was fantastic.”

Defense dominated as Penn State allowed just nine shots and the Terriers held the Nittany Lions to just three.

The contest was scoreless at the half.

Schram finally ended the scoring drought in the 53rd minute, drilling the ball in from six yards out. Raquel Rodriguez dropped the ball to Mallory Weber, who then passed it to Schram for the game-winner

“We have seen Schram score that goal in training 50 times,” said Walsh. “That’s just Taylor Schram, all hustle, all work.”

The Penn State defensive unit of Kori Chapic, Whitney Church, Brittany Basinger and Salina Williford made the lead stand up. Goalie Britt Eckerstrom tallied three saves in the second career shutout.
