Penn State (0-3, 0-0) was able to out-shoot the Huskies, 4-2, in the first half, and withstood a barrage of eight Northeastern (4-0) shots in the second half as the teams finished regulation knotted at 0-0.
Senior Karin Grap (Van Etten, N.Y.) fired three shots in the game, and once again, sophomore Annelise Legel (Morgantown, Pa.) provided a spark off the bench, getting off two shots in the game. Against Connecticut a day earlier, she was able to tally three shots in that contest. Seniors Michele Rigby (Dover, Del.) and Amanda Eckert (Lititz, Pa.) also got off one shot each in the game. For Northeastern, Liane Dixon fired four shots in the contest, connecting on the game-winner.
