Penn State women's soccer: Nittany Lions top Wisconsin

October 5, 2013 

— A pair of first-half goals stood up the rest of the way as No. 7 Penn State tripped No. 18 Wisconsin 2-1 Friday night, beating former Nittany Lion coach Paula Wilkins.

Tani Costa and Maya Hayes found the net for the Nittany Lions (10-1-1, 3-0 Big Ten). Costa scored first, her fifth goal of the season, with a low shot from close range set up by Hayes in the 31st minute. The senior forward then netted her 13th goal, heading in a ball from Mallory Weber and Taylor Schram.

Rose Lavelle scored a second-half goal for the Badgers (7-2-2, 2-1-1).

Britt Eckerstrom made three saves in the net for Penn State, which visits Minnesota on Sunday.
