COLUMBUS, Ohio – Lara Dickenmann scored the game-winning goal to give the Ohio State women’s soccer team a 3-2 victory vs. Indiana Friday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Lisa Collison and Danielle Dietrich each contributed a goal, helping the Buckeyes record its second-consecutive three-goal game of the season.
“Part of what we want this team to learn is to overcome adversity,” Lori Walker, head coach, said “I think we really battled through and when adversity struck, we put back our shoulders and fought.”
Ohio State struck first, taking a 1-0 lead 26:10 minutes into the first half when Collison (Fr., Niagara Falls, Ontario/Burlington Flames) took a Dickenmann (So., Kriens, Switzerland/Sursee) pass and shot the ball into the left corner of the net from the six-yard box for her team-leading 10th goal. In the stanza, both teams were even in corner kicks with two and the Buckeyes out shot the Hoosiers 8-7 going into the break.
Indiana evened the score at 1-all in the second half (58:35) when a Buckeye defender knocked the ball into the OSU net for the own goal. However, Ohio State regained the lead in the 71st minute after Dietrich (Sr., Cincinnati, Ohio/Kolping) fired a straight shot past IU keeper Lauren Fabbro on a penalty kick. Trailing, 2-1, Indiana answered with a score less than six minutes later (75:10) with a Courtney O’Bryan corner kick goal. All even at 2-2, Collison and Taylor Smith (Jr., Shaker Heights, Ohio/Cobras) fed Dickenmann a ball that she shot just over the goal line on a slow roller at the 80:18 mark for the gamewinner. For the game, the Buckeyes out shot the Hoosiers 22-16 and Indiana held the corner kicks advantage, 4-3. Staci Sinkway (So, Mission Viejo, Calif./So Cal Blues) who played all 90 minutes in goal, made six saves. IU goalkeepers Stacey Van Boxmeer and Fabbro combined for five saves.
“I think our team played hard and I think Indiana played hard” Walker said. “At the end, Indiana put an extra player up front, so we had to adjust for that. I have to give Indiana credit, they never gave up.”
Ohio State will face Purdue at 1 p.m. Sunday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium for game four of a five-game homestand. The Buckeyes’ fifth-consecutive match at JOMS will come against Penn State Oct. 14 at 7 p.m. The Buckeyes will try to break the NCAA national home attendance record of 6,527 when they meet the Nittany Lions in a re-match of the 2004 Big Ten Tournament final. Last season, Ohio State outlasted Penn State for a 2-0 win at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium for the conference tournament crown.
