The Spartans faced off against Penn State as they closed out the Michigan State soccer doubleheader that featured both the men’s and women’s teams kicking off. The two sides battled to a draw sharing the points in a defensive showcase.
The first action of the match came in the sixth minute, when Penn State found itself with a free kick on the right side of the 18-yard box. The free kick was clipped into the back post before redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Zac Kelly punched the ball, ricocheting it off a Penn State man before flashing just past his post.
In the 13th minute, the Spartans got their first sight of a goal. Freshman forward Richie Ludwig slipped a pass to sophomore forward Jake Spadafora who went bursting towards the Penn State end line. Spadafora squared a ball to the feet of sophomore forward Jonathan Stout who fired a goal-bound shot
