PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The Ohio State women’s soccer team picked up its first victory of the season, a 2-0 result at Pittsburgh Friday evening.

“I think we played very solid defense in the first half and our rhythm was much better today than the first two games,” Ohio State head coach Lori Walker said. “We received some great minutes from a lot of different players and I think that was key with a regular like Paige Maxwell back in Columbus after violating team conduct.”

The Buckeyes jumped out to the early lead when Tiffany Cameron scored her first goal of the season in the 20th minute. Junior Caitlyn Martin deflected a corner and Cameron was right there to find the back of the net.

Liz Sullivan then provided an insurance tally for Ohio State, the first goal of her career, on a free kick from midfield in the 63rd minute.

For the game, Ohio State outshot the Panthers 14-8 and 6-2 on goal. The Buckeyes also held a 7-3 advantage in corner kicks.

The Buckeyes (1-1-1, 0-0-0 Big Ten) return home to take on West Virginia, a participant in the last 10 NCAA tournaments, at 1 p.m. Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
