Villanova snares team of the week honors

  Villanova scored a big 19-9 victory on the road against Penn State.

Villanova bounced back from its season-opening overtime loss to Harvard with a dominate performance against then-No. 12 Penn State on Feb. 27.

Eight different Wildcats scored points in a 19-9 victory over the Nittany Lions in State College, Pennsylvania.

Jake Froccaro scored a school-record eight goals and assisted two more and Luke Palmadesso captured 22 of 27 faceoffs.

"We know Luke's a great faceoff guy and I think the rest of the country is learning about him now," head coach Mike Corrado said.

Villanova’s defense outplayed Penn State on ground balls, collecting 34 to 14.

"It was almost make it take it,” Corrado said. “We had a lot of offensive opportunity and we got on a little bit of a roll. We'd score, we'd win a faceoff, and we were able to get on two or three runs in that opened the game up.”

Villanova returns to the field hosting Drexel on Tuesday, March 1.
