"It's great to get our first win as a women's soccer team," said Head Coach Rachael Schmitz.  "We are going to continue with the positive energy and keep on the upward swing."

Penn State DuBois took an early 2-0 lead Thursday.  Scoring for the Lady Lions was Amanda Malacarne, with two goals.  Lauren Laughner picked up an assist on the first.   Malacarne also scored the game winning overtime goal with 3:40 left to play. Jill Curley and Jacey Royer provided a single goal each.
