From Press Release

Sophomore Madison Cunningham made a career-high 14 saves and Katie O’Donnell (Henderson) had three goals while freshman Quinn Nicolai (Moorestown-NJ) scored twice as No. 12 Penn State held off a late Lehigh run to secure a 14-13 road victory in nonconference action Saturday from the Ulrich Sports Complex.

It appeared as if Lehigh junior Kellie Gough had evened the score in the final minute, but the officials waved off the goal due to a dangerous follow through. The Mountain Hawks were led offensively by junior Courtney Henig, who tied a career-high seven points behind three goals and four assists.

Gough had four points behind three goals and an assist while senior Julianne D’Orazio (Merion Mercy) tallied two goals and an assist. Junior Alexis King (Conestoga) led the defense with two caused turnovers while freshman goalkeeper Samantha Sagi was sensational, making 16 saves, including a number of point-blank stops to help set the stage for the Mountain Hawks’ late comeback attempt. Junior Sondra Dickey (Conestoga, five draws), senior Kayleen Kelly (4) and junior Olivia Kelly (4) combined for 13 draw controls. Haley Wentzel (Boyertown) had a goal and an assist and a groundball.

Penn State (1-1) also got a goal from Shannon Moore (West Chester East) and a groundball and caused turnover from defender Haley DeAgostine (Henderson).
