#7 UVa Field Hockey Upsets #6 Penn State 4-2

Posted: Updated:

Virginia senior Elly Buckley led the 'Hoos with two goals as the #7 'Hoos took down #6 Penn State Sunday at University Hall Turf Field. 

The Cavaliers had a convincing lead until Penn State's Taylor Herold put a goal in with 8 minutes remaining in the match to make it a one goal game (3-2 Cavs).

With only two minutes remaining, Lucy Hyams crossed the ball to Riley Tata who put her reverse stick on the ball for a goal that iced the 'Hoos 4-2 victory over PSU.

Virginia will return to action Friday at 2 PM as they hit the road to take on Yale.
