Lady Lions Score Early And Often In 5-2 Win

Penn State defeats Boston College to advance to the Round of 16.

It did not even take a minute for the Penn State women's soccer team to get on the board Friday night. Maya Hayes scored within the first minute and, from there, the Lady Lions never looked back in a dominant 5-2 win over Boston College at Jeffrey Field.

Hayes also notched the second goal of the game for Penn State when she scored in the 27th minute to put the Lady Lions up 2-0 at halftime.

Scoring was rampant as the second half started with Mallory Weber netting a goal only two minutes into the half, giving Penn State a 3-0 lead. Christine Nairn was hit with a yellow card in the box soon after, though, and Boston College leading scorer Kristen Mewis connected on her PK attempt to cut the lead to 3-1. Mewis would add another goal three minutes later to cut the lead further, but that's as close at the Eagles would get as Nairn and Weber added insurance goals in the 74th and 78th minutes, respectively, to put the game out of reach.

With the win, Penn State moves onto the Round of 16. There, they will take on Big Ten rival Michigan who defeated fourth-seeded Portland, 3-0, earlier on Friday. The Lady Lions and Wolverines met once during the regular season, drawing at one on Penn State's Senior Day.

The Sweet 16 matchup will take place Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. at Jeffrey Field. The winner will take on the winner of Duke/Virginia.
