The Penn State men's soccer team (6-1-1, 1-0-0 Big Ten) opened up Big Ten play Friday night with a hard fought 1-0 win against Wisconsin (2-3-3, 0-1-0 Big Ten).
The Lions dominated for large portions of the game, out-shooting the Badgers 23-9 and 14-3 in the second half. Despite this, it took until the final 10 minutes for the Lions to net the winning goal.
The subs for the Lions continued to take advantage of their extra playing time as three subs combined for the winning goal and Penn State had 16 players see playing time.
In the 81st minute, Hasani Sinclair and Drew Klingenberg picked up their first assists of the season as the Badgers turned the ball over toward the end line. The ball was crossed to Kelton Cheney at the back post, who scored in his second consecutive game.
The Badgers threatened to equalize off an 88th minute corner but sent the header wide to seal the Penn State win.
