COLUMBUS, Ohio-- The Ohio State women's soccer team fell to the recently-crowned Big Ten champion Penn State Nittany Lions Friday, 1-0, at State College, Pa. The Buckeyes saw their record fall to 5-12 overall and 1-9 in the Big Ten following their fifth-consecutive loss. The No. 6 Nittany Lions improved to 15-2-1 overall and remained a perfect 9-0 in the Big Ten.

PSU jumped out to the early lead when freshman Heidi Drummond deflected a shot from teammate Joanna Lohman at 15:41.

OSU's Amber Barnes (Sr., Fairfield, Ohio/Fairfield) was able to keep the top-rated offense in the conference off the scoreboard for the remainder of the match by stopping 12 shots. In her last three games, Barnes has recorded 10, 13 and 12 saves, respectively.

The Nittany Lions fired 21 shots while OSU was held to zero, the lowest total for an OSU team in the program's history. The previous record was set nearly six years ago to the day when Notre Dame allowed only two shots on Oct. 21, 1994.

OSU will finish its streak of four-consecutive road matches when the Buckeyes visit Ohio University Thursday for a 3 p.m. match at Athens, Ohio.
