Women’s football beats Cal 4-0 behind McClellan’s 2-goal effort


CALIFORNIA, Pennsylvania – Playing on the road for the first time this season, the Lock Haven University women’s football team (2-0) earned a 4-0 shutout victory over the University of California (Pa.) (0 -1), thanks in large part to a two-goal exit from the rookie Hunter McClellan (Summit of Granville, Pa / Troy).

LHU opened the 2021 season Thursday (September 2) at home with a 2-1 win over Pitt-Johnstown and the Bald Eagles went to a perfect 2-0 on the season with today’s road win.

This is Lock Haven’s first 2-0 start since 2002.

McClellan scored his first career goal in Lock Haven’s season opener and his two goals today give him the team’s three best goals in the young season. She scored twice out of five shots today.

Josie swartz (Mifflintown, PA / Juniata) scored once and she added two assists. Anna manley (Catawissa, Pa./Southern Columbia) added a goal in the win and the goalie Kylie Auman (Center Hall, PA / Penns Valley) needed just one save to win the shutout, the first of his career at Haven.

Lock Haven were leading 1-0 at half-time after Swartz converted from the penalty spot in the 14e minute.

In the 48e minute one Sydney stahl (Pittsburgh / Keystone Oaks) put McClellan up against Cal goaltender Emily Ouimet and McClellan scored her first goal of the game and second of the season. McCellan went 3-0 LHU in the 53e minute. His second goal of the game came from an assist from Swartz.

Manley put the game aside in the 76e minute. His goal also came from an assist from Swartz and made it 4-0 Lock Haven.

In two games, McClellan leads the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) in goals, penalties and shots.

Lock Haven will be back in action on Saturday, September 11 in Shippensburg at 2 p.m. ET.
