COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State scored three goals in the second half to pull away from a game Bowling Green squad and claim a 3-1 victory on Thursday evening at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

The win improves the Buckeyes to 2-1-0 on the season while Bowling Green drops its third road match to open the season 0-3-0.

Senior Kayla Fischer had a big night, scoring her first two goals of the season and also added an assist. Sophomore Chloe Delyser had the game-winner, which was the first goal of her career. She too had an assist on the evening.

How it Happened

The Buckeyes were knocking on the door in the first half but it was to no avail as the teams went scoreless in the first 45 minutes. Freshman Kailyn Dudukovich had the best chance for the Buckeyes in the opening half as her header in the 28th minute hit the post and stayed out.

In the second half, the Buckeyes finally broke through as Kayla Fischer headed home a pass from Kine Flotre off a nicely placed corner kick in the 55th minute to give the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead. Bowling Green answered right back with a goal off a corner kick of its own just over two minutes later and the match was again tied.

In the 78th minute, Emaly Vatne found Fischer on the left wing and she crossed to Chloe Delyser in the middle of the box and Delyser buried her first collegiate goal. Fischer then capped the night as she took a pass from Delyser and streaked down the left side of the field, ultimately beating the Falcon keeper for her second goal of the evening. That one came just 20 seconds after Delyser’s goal and took the wind out of the Falcons’ sails.



  • Ohio State outshot Bowling Green 28-8 for the match
  • Playing in just her 14th career match, Chloe Delyser notched her first goal and her second career assist.
  • Kayla Fischer now has 16 goals in her career. Her team-high eight shot attempts gives her 171 for her career, which is 13th-most in program history.
  • The five points were the most in a game in Fischer’s career
  • Junior Kitty Jones-Black notched her second assist of the season and the second assist of her career.
