Penn State took down Michigan 11-6 up in Michigan’s Oosterbaan Field House on Saturday in front of a packed crowd. TJ Sanders and Shane Sturgis each notched four goals for the Nittany Lions, and goalie Austin Kaut made 12 saves for the win. Penn State was only up 5-3 at the half, but used a 5 goals run in the third period to push that margin to 10-3. Michigan won the last period 3-1, but it wasn’t enough to come back on PSU.
Michigan tried to feed the crease a bit, and in this case (at the :45 second mark), they pay the price:
Jack Forster had two goals and an assist for PSU, while Kyle Jackson did the same for Michigan. Tommy Paras and Will Meter both added a goal and an assist, and Gerald Logan had an impressive 19 saves in net for the Wolverines. Penn State was only 1 of 6 on extra man opportunities, while Michigan was more more effective, going 2 for 3.
Penn State dominated on face offs, 15-5, and picked up GBs at an impressive rate, outpacing Michigan 44-27 in that category.
