On Sunday, Villanova traveled to University Park and dropped another tough game to Penn State. The Nittany Lions grabbed their first win of the season by a score of, 8-2, outshooting the Wildcats 26-10. Christen Pennington and Emily Clarke contributed the two goals for Villanova. Penn State was led by Alexis Horst and Abby Myers, who had two goals each. Penn State heads to Bloomington to play Indiana Friday.
