Winner, winner

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State won its 16th Big Ten Championship and third outright title in four years thanks to second half heroics by senior Kori Chapic on Senior Day, as the Nittany Lions beat Iowa 2-1 Sunday afternoon.

Chapic had the first two-goal game of her career, scoring the pair five-and-a-half minutes apart to capture the conference title. Chapic and her teammates Kindrah Kohne, Emily Hurd and Whitney Church were honored prior to the match.

The trio of Emily Ogle, Salina Williford and Kori Chapic struck for the game-winner. On a free kick, Hannah Clark kicked the ball to midfield, which went directly to Ogle. Ogle chested down the ball and tapped it to Williford, who dished it to Chapic. Chapic dribbled the ball and sent it sailing from 20 yards out just under the crossbar for the 2-1 game-winner. The goal was Chapic's fifth of the year, marking a career-best.

Iowa (10-4-1, 5-4-1 Big Ten) got on the board just 5:01 into the match when Corey Burns took a perfectly placed corner that sailed directly into the net for the 1-0 lead.

After the goal, the Nittany Lions (16-2-0, 11-1-0) outshot the Hawkeyes 10-1 in the final 40 minutes of the half.

Penn State didn't let up upon returning from halftime and were rewarded in the 53rd minute. At midfield, Williford fed the ball to Ogle, who sent it to Kori Chapic streaking down the wing. She sent a rocket from 25 yards out that sailed over goalkeeper Clark's head to get the equalizer.

Also earning a career-best mark was Britt Eckerstrom (16-2-0), who posted her 16th win of the year. She made three saves in the victory.
