Robert Morris (8-2-0) scored twice in each period. Kristen Richards scored twice and Brittany Howard notched three assists for the Colonials. Anissa Gamble, Thea Imbrogno, Rebecca Vint and Ashley Vesci also scored.

Shannon Yoxheimer and Taylor Gross each had six of Penn State’s 22 shots.

The Nittany Lions next face Syracuse on Nov. 9 at Pegula.
