Everything you missed in Penn State sports — and isn’t elsewhere in the CDT — from Tuesday:
Marcus Allen named LOTT Impact POTW
Penn State safety Marcus Allen earned national recognition Tuesday by being named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week for his 12-tackle performance against Pitt.
Never miss a local story.
The university will receive $1,000 for its general scholarship fund in recognition of Allen’s performance.
Allen’s 12 tackles proved to be a game high, and he also recorded a safety in the end zone and a pass breakup. Penn State won 33-14.
Lions improve to 6-0
LEWISBURG Penn State’s Madison Morano scored two goals — the first and the last — to lead the No. 2 Nittany Lions’ field hockey team to a 5-1 win over Bucknell on Tuesday.
PSU is now 6-0 on the season.
It took Morano and Penn State nearly 20 minutes to score, and they led just 1-0 at the half. But the game was never in doubt. Within a five-minute span in the second half, Penn State added three more goals to extend its lead to 4-0.
The Lions will return to action at 5 p.m. Friday when they host Iowa in their Big Ten home opener.
Ohio State shuts out PSU
UNIVERSITY PARK The Penn State men’s soccer team kept Tuesday’s game scoreless at halftime, but Ohio State cruised in the second half to a 3-0 shutout victory.
The Nittany Lions managed just a single shot on goal in 90 minutes. Ohio State had six.
PSU is 1-2-2 overall this season. It will next play No. 3 Maryland on Sunday.
Time change announced
UNIVERSITY PARK The women’s volleyball match on Sept. 23 against Iowa will now take place at 4 p.m., the university announced Tuesday.
“The change in time was made to enable fans to attend the volleyball match before tuning in as the Penn State football team makes their first visit to Iowa since 2012 with a kick at 7:30 p.m. and air on ABC,” according to the university.
