Oct. 5, 2008
LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Daneen Zug scored two goals in a 3-1 victory for the No. 14 Penn State field hockey team over Lock Haven Sunday on the road as it won its third straight game.
Penn State scored on two of its seven penalty corner opportunities while out-shooting the Eagles, 8-6, in the battle of U.S. Route 322.
Aubrey Aden-Buie (Allentown, Pa.) began the scoring 21:08 into the game on an unassisted goal. It was the former Penn State soccer All-American's second goal for the field hockey team.
Zug (Manheim, Pa.) gave the Nittany Lions a two-goal cushion five minutes into the second half off a penalty corner goal. Scola sent the ball to the stopper Long, who shuffled it along to Zug.
Lock Haven (10-3) cut the lead in half at the 48-minute mark with a corner goal of its own. Kaitlyn Smith earned a goal, while Amy Hordendorf tallied an assist.
Penn State retaliated quickly from Smith's goal, gaining another goal from Zug two minutes later. Zug's second goal played out similarly to her first with help from Scola and Long on the penalty corner. It marked Zug's second two-goal game in four games. She previously earned four points against Princeton on Sept. 24.
The victory marked the 28th consecutive victory for the Nittany Lions over intrastate opponents.
The Eagles fell behind in penalty corner opportunities, 7-4.
Jen Beaumont (Chalfont, Pa.) earned her seventh victory this season with four saves.
Penn State returns to Big Ten action Friday against No. 6 Iowa at 3 p.m. at the Field Hockey Field. The game will be telecast live on the Big Ten Network.
