No. 7 Penn State's patented defense lead to shutout win vs. No. 13 Wisconsin

  Penn State recorded its second consecutive shutout and sixth of the season.

MADISON, Wis. -- Seventh-ranked Penn State shut out No. 13 Wisconsin 2-0 thanks to a pair of second-half goals by Emily Ogle and Salina Williford.

Penn State has not allowed a goal in more than 200 minutes of play and has held its opponents to one or fewer goals in 12 of 13 matches this season.

The first half saw strong play on both sides of the field with Penn State taking five shots and Wisconsin recording six.

But in the 78th minute, the Nittany Lions finally broke through. Streaking through the middle, Maddie Elliston slipped the ball to Mallory Weber. Weber ran around a Wisconsin defender and from just outside the 18-yard box, sent a cross from the nearside corner to Ogle 5 yards out. Ogle sent it low past the goalkeeper for the 1-0 lead.

With just 25 seconds left in regulation, the Blue and White tacked on another goal to seal the victory. Megan Schafer dished the ball from the far post to Williford, who knocked in her fourth of the season for the final 2-0 score.

Britt Eckerstrom improved her record to 12-1, making four saves in her fifth shutout of the year.
