Everything you missed in Penn State sports — and isn’t listed elsewhere — from Sunday:
PSU shuts out Princeton
PRINCETON, N.J. The No. 3 Penn State field hockey team recorded its third straight shutout Sunday with a 2-0 win over No 12 Princeton.
Princeton out-shot Penn State by a 15-12 margin, but Nittany Lions goalkeeper Jenny Rizzo recorded nine saves in the winning effort.
Penn State’s Katie Dembrowski scored 12:17 into the game, and Aurelia Meijer added an insurance goal at the 51:42 mark. Cassie Kline had assists on both scores.
PSU will next travel to Lewisburg, Pa., to take on Bucknell at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
No. 5 PSU falls to No. 8 UVA
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. In a back-and-forth affair where Penn State never had the lead, Virginia came out on top 3-2 Sunday.
The Cavaliers struck first less than three minutes into the game. Penn State tied it up 40 minutes later, and the teams traded goals to tie it up again at 2-2.
At the 61:04 mark, Virginia’s Phoebe McClernon found the back of the net on a free kick for what proved to be the eventual game-winner.
The Nittany Lions will open Big Ten play at 7 p.m. Thursday at home against Northwestern.
Lions in 1st after 2 rounds
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. After the first day — and two rounds — of the William & Mary Invitational, the Penn State women’s golf team stands in first place out of the 11-team field.
The Nittany Lions (14-over) lead runner-up Seton Hall by two strokes. UNCW is third at 20-over.
Three Penn State golfers cracked the top 10 out of 67 individuals. Cara Basso (2-over) is tied for second, while both Jackie Rogowciz and Kamerine Taylor are tied for sixth at 4-over.
PSU will continue the tournament Monday with the third and final round.
Play suspended due to darkness
INDEPENDENCE, Minn. Play in the first round of the Gopher Invitational was suspended at 7:30 p.m. Sunday due to darkness and will resume 8:30 a.m. Monday.
The two-round tournament is also set to finish Monday.
Although the 16 teams are all somewhere between Holes 12-18, so the current standings might be somewhat misleading, Penn State stands tied in 14th at 21-over.
