Big Ten Network | Twitter Penn State MSOC

No. 16 Penn State celebrated senior night in style, as the Nittany Lions beat No. 17 Maryland behind Christian Sload's goal in overtime. This was the Nittany Lions' first victory over the Terrapins since 2005.

Sload's golden goal, which came after the ball bounced around the box from a cross, capped off a night where Penn State had to crawl back, as the Terrapins were up 2-0 until the 22nd minute. The Nittany Lions' first goal came when Aaron Molloy swung a beautiful ball into the box where it met the head of Brandon Hackenberg. 

PSU's second goal came when freshman Kyle May blasted a ball, that was dancing in the box, into the bottom right corner of the goal. The Terrapins had a nice buffer though, thanks to goals From Eli Crognale and Justin Gielen, both coming within the first 13 minutes of the match.
