The Lady Cavs rebounded from a disappointing overtime loss to open the season by scoring their first win of 2012, also a 1-0 final over Penn State-Abington on Wednesday, Sept. 5, at Edith Robb Dixon Field.

After losing to Susquehanna University on Friday, Aug. 31, in a 1-0 heartbreaker in overtime, the Lady Cavs bounced back with a shooting gallery against the Nittany Lions.

Penn State-Abington goalkeeper Gabrielle Benedict turned a relentless, offensive attack by the Lady Cavs away for 72 minutes.

Just as the teams entered the 73rd minute of play, a shot by Meghan Martin found the upper corner of the net. It was the freshman’s first collegiate goal. Freshman Nicole Hallinan added her first collegiate point with an assist.

That was enough for senior goalkeeper Maddy Edwards and the Lady Cavs. The Nittany Lions fired four shots, with one of them going on goal. Edwards stopped that to keep the lead in tact and would go on to post the 19th shutout of her career.

The Lady Cavs return to action on Wednesday, Sept. 12, when they host Eastern University in the Battle of Eagle Road.
