COLUMBUS, Ohio – Maghan Beaudrault scored the game-winner with 36 seconds remaining in regulation to give Ohio State a dramatic 16-15 victory over Louisville Saturday afternoon at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
The tally was Beaudrault’s second of the game and came just 32 seconds after Brittney Zerhusen tied the game at 15.
After Louisville jumped out to the early 5-3 lead, the Buckeyes came back behind three first half goals off the bench by Kirsten Donahue to head into the half with a 10-9 advantage. The Buckeyes pushed that lead to 14-12 after Zerhusen scored with 12:38 remaining. However, the Cardinals scored three unanswered before Ohio State scored a pair to take the lead for good with less than a minute remaining.
Kelly Haggerty scored three goals and added four assists, one on the game-winner, while Gabby Capuzzi added four goals.
The Buckeyes (4-2) will be back in action March 20 against George Washington at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The game is set for 1 p.m. with free admission for all fans.
