COLUMBUS, Ohio – Junior Andrew Sturtz (Buffalo, N.Y.) scored the game-tying goal with just 0.7 seconds remaining in regulation and potted the lone shootout goal to help Penn State earn two points against No. 11 Ohio State after a 5-5 tie and 1-0 shootout victory in Big Ten Conference action this evening from Value City Arena.

Penn State runs its unbeaten streak to five game (3-0-2) as they improve to 8-7-2 on the year and 3-4-2-1 in the Big Ten while Ohio State sits at 8-3-4 overall and 3-3-1-0 in conference action.


  • Penn State opened the scoring as sophomore Kris Myllari (Kanata, Ont.) fired a slap shot from the left dot that was blocked, but fluttered into the air and over the shoulder of Buckeye net-minder Sean Romeo for the 1-0 lead at 6:20 of the first period.
  • The Buckeyes answered in the final minutes of the first frame as Christian Lampasso received a great pass from Austin Pooley and fired from below the right dot beating junior goaltender Chris Funkey (Orland Park, Ill.) high-glove for the 1-1 tie at 18:47.
  • The Nittany Lions regained the lead as freshman Alex Limoges (Winchester, Va.) used a strong fore-check to cause a turnover near the left dot and he was left one-on-one with Romeo and went forehand-backhand-forehand for the unassisted goal and 2-1 lead at 4:58 of the second period.
  • Junior Kevin Kerr (Bensalem, Pa.) extended the PSU lead as he received a pass from sophomore Brandon Biro (Sherwood Park, Alb.) and skated down the slot before firing off Romeo’s shoulder and into the back of the net at 14:04 of the second period for the 3-1 edge.
  • Dakota Joshua cut the deficit to a single goal early in the third period as he finished a great feed from Tanner Laczynski out front for the 3-2 score at 3:38.
  • Less than a minute later Laczynski tied the game on the power-play as he fired a quick wrister from the left circle for the 3-3 score at 4:33 of the third period.
  • Brendon Kearney then made it three straight Buckeye goals as he one-timed a feed from Lampasso for the 4-3 lead at 8:53 of the final frame.

  • Freddy Gerard then gave the lead back to the hosts has he ripped a pass from Matthew Weis into the back of the net from the left circle at 15:35 for the 5-4 advantage.
