The Ohio State field hockey team (8-8; 1-4 Big Ten) fell, 4-2, to No. 14 California Sunday at Phyllis Ocker Field in Ann Arbor, Mich. Sophomore Curlyne Wynn tallied both Buckeye goals.
OSU kept pace with Cal, as both teams went into the break tied 1-1. The Golden Bears struck first when Valentina Godfrid, with Maggie Grimes on the assist, redirected a shot just inside the right post at the 17:58 mark. Wynn (So., Trincity, Trinidad and Tobago/North Eastern College) answered with her sixth goal of the season off of a penalty corner awarded to the Buckeyes at 21:08. Teammates Saskia Mueller (So., Zurich Switzerland/Gymnasium Unterstrass) and Florencia Stier (So., Buenos Aires, Argentina/Washington) were credited with the assist.
In the second half California regained the lead when Grimes tipped the ball into the net off of a penalty corner at 44:57. Godfrid added two more goals to give Cal the 4-1 lead. With less than five minutes remaining in the contest the Buckeyes were awarded another penalty corner and Wynn capitalized, scoring her second goal of the game. Mueller and Stier recorded the assist.
Ohio State goalkeeper, Lindsay Williams (Jr., Harrisburg, Pa./Susquehanna Township) registered five saves on the afternoon compared to California goalie Kelly Knapp’s three. The Buckeyes compiled 10 shots and five penalty corners, while the Golden Bears had 16 and five, respectively.
