Lindenwood avenged a shutout loss to Penn State on Friday by blanking the Nittany Lions over the final 58 minites in a 2-1 triumph at Pegula Ice Arena on Saturday afternoon.
Shannon Yoxheimer’s sixth goal of the season gave the Nittany Lions (7-6-3 overall, 2-3-1 College Hockey America) a 1-0 lead just 1:12 into the contest, but Penn State would not amass much of an attack the rest of the game. The Nittany Lions finished with just 11 shots.
Lindenwood (4-7-1, 3-2-1) got even late in the second period on Shara Jasper’s sixth goal. Alyssa West scored the game-winner, her first goal of the season, 4:10 into the third period.
Hannah Ehresmann had 22 saves for the Nittany Lions. Nicole Hensley stopped 10 for Lindenwood.
