Wyomissing grad Seth Kuhn scored the game’s first goal and was named Offensive Player of the Tournament and Kutztown High grad Pierre Reedy scored the last to help Penn State beat Indiana 3-0 in the Big Ten Tournament championship game Sunday at State College.
The Nittany Lions (13-6-1) won their first Big Ten Tournament title since 2005 and won the regular season and tournament championships in the same season for the first time.
Kuhn, a senior midfielder, gave Penn State a 1-0 lead in the 36th minute. It was his fifth goal of the season, and all have come in the last five games.
The Nittany Lions made it 2-0 on a goal by Tyger Evans 10 minutes into the second half.
Reedy, a redshirt senior midfielder who is in his sixth year after missing most of two full seasons due to injury, made it 3-0 in the 85th minute. Kuhn and Peter Mangione had assists.
Penn State’s defense, led by Brandon Hackenberg, a former player for Reading United, held Indiana (14-5-1) to two shots in the second half.
Kuhn, Mangione and Penn State goalie Kris Shakes were named to the All-Tournament Team. Shakes was named the Defensive Player of the Tournament.
The Nittany Lions will find out their opponent for the NCAA Tournament Monday.
