Fresh off a sweep of RIT, Penn State couldn’t keep up its winning ways, falling to Mercyhurst 6-0 on Friday night.
The Nittany Lions were outshot 32-13, and Mercyhurst’s offensive pressure started from the get-go.
Rachael Smith opened the scoring in the first period, and a pair of goals by Sarah Hine in the second gave the Lakers a 3-0 lead.
Mercyhurst continued piling on in the final period. Four minutes in, Callie Paddock found the back of the net, followed by a Taylor Accursi goal less than five minutes later. Smith added a second goal late in the third.
