Michigan field hockey blanks Penn State, Ezurike hat trick leads U-M women's soccer

By Joseph Tobianski

Sophomore Rachael Mack scored a pair of second-half goals to lead the Michigan field hockey team to a 2-0 win over No. 6-ranked Penn State Sunday at Ocker Field.

With the win, the No. 10 Wolverines (11-3, 3-1) move into a first-place Big Ten Conference tie with the Nittany Lions (11-4, 3-1).

Mack, who had a hat trick against Penn State in last year's Big Ten tournament semifinals, deflected a Bryn Bain shot into the goal in the 43rd minute for a 1-0 lead. Eight minutes later, Mack added an insurance goal on an assist from Pioneer High School graduate Emy Guttman.

Another Pioneer grad, Haley Jones, was called on to make just one save while recording her sixth career shutout for Michigan.
