The Ohio State field hockey team (7-6; 0-3 Big Ten) shut out the Pacific Tigers (4-9; 1-1 NorPac), 2-0, Sunday at Grant Field in Iowa City, Iowa. Buckeye freshman Yesenia Luces and sophomore Florencia Stier each notched a goal to give OSU the victory.
“We were able to move the ball around to get the early lead,” Anne Wilkinson, head coach, said. “There was a lot of strong leadership on the field today.”
In the first 35 minutes of action the Scarlet and Gray jumped out to an early lead when Stier (So., Buenos Aires, Argentina/Washington) deflected the ball into the backboard off of a pass from teammate Cammie Trainer (Sr., Hudson, Ohio/Hudson) 1:20 minutes into the game. Luces (Fr., Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago/St. Joseph’s Convent) followed with an unassisted goal at the 17:37 mark. The Buckeye defense also stepped up, limiting the Tigers to one shot in the first half.
Yielding only two shots and two penalty corners in the second half, Ohio State maintained its 2-0 lead, thus securing the win.
Buckeye goalie Lindsay Williams (Jr., Harrisburg, Pa./Susquehanna Township) recorded two saves, while Tiger goalkeeper Kim Myers had three. OSU registered seven shots to Pacific’s three. Ohio State and Pacific were statistically even with six penalty corners a piece.
Ohio State returns to North Turf Field for its final home game of the 2004 season against Northwestern. The Buckeyes and the Wildcats will meet at 1 p.m. Saturday in Columbus. As the last home contest, seniors Lucy Clayton, Meg Lake, Deen Rebstock, Laura Rosenwinkel and Cammie Trainer will be honored prior to the game.
