Penn State men's soccer: Nittany Lions end skid against Indiana

From CDT staff reportsOctober 7, 2013 

— Penn State recorded its first victory over Indiana since 2005 and first-ever shutout at Armstrong Stadium as the Nittany Lions defeated the Hoosiers 2-0 on Sunday.

Jordan Tyler and Owen Griffith tallied first-half goals and Andrew Wolverton made five saves in the triumph.

“I am so proud of the team,” said Nittany Lion coach Bob Warming, whose team improved to 7-3-1 overall and 2-0 in the Big Ten. “We had two terrific and composed goals and a big-time penalty kick save by Wolverton. (Indiana’s) front six are as good as there is in college soccer. Our guys bent, but did not break in the second half.”

In the 14th minute, Grant Warming poked a pass to the right wing and Connor Maloney crossed it the top of the six-yard area to Tyler, who beat Indiana keeper Michael Soderlung.

Grant Warming got his second assist just 10 minutes later. Warming sent a pass off an Indiana defender to Griffith, who lofted an 18-yard shot into the upper right corner of the goal.

Indiana (4-6-1, 1-1) could not get anything past Wolverton, who posted his fifth shutout of the season and 20th of his career.

Penn State will host Michigan on Friday.
