IU field hockey players prepare to compete against Penn State on April 11. The Hoosiers lost to Penn State 1-0 Friday and 3-0 Sunday.

IU field hockey fell in its weekend series against Penn State, losing 1-0 Friday and 3-0 Sunday in University Park, Pennsylvania.

The first match began at 3 p.m. Friday. Senior goalkeeper Sachi Ananias had her first playing time this season, recording eight saves while giving up a single goal. The single goal allowed was the Hoosiers’ best defensive performance since Feb. 27 against Iowa.

A late goal from Penn State freshman Sophia Gladieux sealed IU’s fate. 

The second match, a 3-0 loss Sunday, started slowly with a single Penn State goal in the first half. The Nittany Lions added two more in the second half to take the win and series against the Hoosiers. Sophomore midfielder Kennedy Reardon took IU’s one shot on goal in the match.

The Hoosiers were outshot on the weekend, posting 11 to Penn State’s 37. 

IU will return to play Thursday against Michigan State in East Lansing, Michigan, before facing Michigan on Saturday in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
