March 31, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Greg Jackson scored five goals, including back-to-back goals to break a 14-14 tie, to to lead No. BTC 10 Penn State to an 18-14 victory over UMBC at Jeffrey Field.

Chad Henry scored nine goals, one off the school record, to lead the Retrievers (2-4), who have lost six straight on the road.

Jackson, the Nittany Lions' leading scorer, also had three assists.

The Nittany Lions (7-1) took a 14-11 lead into the fourth quarter, but UMBC drew even at 14 on Henry's final goal of the game with 8: 26 to play.

Answering the Retrievers' 3-0 run, Penn State scored four straight, including two goals and one assist from Jackson, to close out the game.

Penn State has won five in a row.

"We should have been tighter on defense," Penn State coach Glenn Thiel said. "We kept leaving Henry open in close, and that's where [Nittany Lions goalkeeper] Kevin [Keenan] has trouble."
