The Ohio State field hockey team (5-5; 0-2 Big Ten) suffered a 2-1 defeat to the Central Michigan Chippewas (4-3; 1-1 MAC) Sunday at North Turf Field in Columbus, Ohio. Sophomore Jessica Gofgosky scored for the Buckeyes, marking her first goal of the season.
“We didn’t get the result we wanted today,” Anne Wilkinson, head coach, said. “We had plenty of opportunities to put the ball away, but we just didn’t finish.”
In the first half the Buckeyes took a 1-0 lead when Gofgosky (So., Marathon, N.Y./Marathon Central), with Saskia Mueller (So., Zurich, Switzerland/Gymnasium Unterstrass) on the assist, fired a shot into the net from the right side of the goal 16:29 minutes into the stanza. Going into the break, the Scarlet and Gray held the shot advantage, 14-1.
A little over fourteen minutes into the second half, Central Michigan’s Allyson Doan tied the game after receiving a pass from teammate Kristy Reed and pushing the ball into the backboard. Less than a minute later Erica Takach scored after the Chippewas were awarded a penalty corner at the 50:02 mark to seal the victory.
OSU goalie, Lindsay Williams (Jr., Harrisburg, Pa./Susquehanna Township) recorded five saves to CMU goalkeeper Sarah Mancuso’s 10. Ohio State registered 23 shots and nine penalty corners, while Central Michigan had eight and three, respectively.
The Buckeyes travel just down the road to Athens, Ohio, where they will face the Ohio Bobcats at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Ohio State then faces Iowa at 1 p.m. Saturday and Pacific at 1 p.m. Sunday in Iowa City, Iowa.
