Kaut Saves 16 as No. 17 Penn State Beats Binghamton

The period would belong to Kaut has he made four crucial saves as the Bearcats tried to eat into the lead once again. One such flurry saw back-to-back saves by the All-American netminder with 3:45 remaining as Penn State would eventually clear into its attacking third.

On a Binghamton infraction, the Bearcats called timeout and set up a double team on the restart with 1:32 remaining in the game. Leaving the net open, Sturgis fired the long-range shot to cap the scoring at 11-7.

Penn State won the ground ball battle 23-21 led by Danny Henneghan's (Beverly Hills, Mich.) five ground ball pickups. Henneghan went 10 for 21 in faceoffs. Freshman James Burke (Duxbury, Mass.) had a career-high three ground balls and Sturgis matched his career high with three of his own.

Defensively, Kessler Brown (Springfield, Va.) caused a team-high two turnovers, while Jack Donnelly (Toronto, Ont.), Tyler Travis (Geneva, N.Y.), and Bogert tallied two ground balls apiece. JP Burnside (Garden City, N.Y.) collected a ground ball as well for the defense that has held its past two opponents to six goals a game.

Binghamton out-shot Penn State 41-31 for the game with a commanding 26-9 tally in the second half. The Bearcats went 3 for 5 in extra-man opportunities, while Penn State was 0 for 1.

The Nittany Lions return to Happy Valley for a 1:00 p.m. contest on March 23 against Saint Joseph's in CAA play. Penn State will be in search of its first three-game winning streak of the year and sixth straight win over the Hawks, who last played on Saturday in a 12-5 win over Marquette.
