COLUMBUS, Ohio The 19th-ranked Ohio State field hockey team suffered its first setback of the 2022 season as the Buckeyes dropped a hard-fought 1-0 decision to Miami on Sunday afternoon in Oxford, Ohio. The Buckeyes are 3-1 on the season while Miami improves to 3-3.

The Short Story
Ohio State outshot Miami 15-3 on the stat sheet and had nine penalty corners, but the only goal of the game went in favor of the Redhawks as Miami was awarded a penalty stroke with four seconds remaining in the first half and converted.

The Buckeyes generated offense all afternoon but couldn’t put one in the back of the cage. Leanne Bough, Emma Goldean, Cameryn Forgash and Sarah Charley all had shots on goal while goalkeeper Abby Danson made one save and faced just two shots on goal.

How It Happened

  • The Buckeyes surrendered their first goal of the season with just four seconds remaining in the first half as Claudia Negrete-Garcia scored off a penalty stroke. It was her team-leading fourth goal of the season for the Redhawks.
  • The first three shots of the game in the first quarter all belonged to Ohio State. The Buckeyes were able to generate two scoring chances off corners, but each of their shots was saved by Miami’s Isabelle Perese.
  • Ohio State dominated the third quarter on the stat sheet, outshooting Miami 13-0 while getting six corner opportunities. Miami goalkeeper Isabelle Perese made three saves, however, to keep the scarlet and gray off the scoreboard.
  • Trailing entering the fourth quarter for the first time this season, Ohio State’s only shot over the final 15 minutes – an opportunity 1:37 into the final stanza by Cameryn Forgash – was saved by Perese.

 This and That

  • Ohio State’s scoreless streak of defense to start the season was 209:56.
  • Miami is one of Ohio State’s most-played non-conference opponents in school history; Sunday was the 49th all-time meeting between the two teams.
  • Eight of the last 12 games have been decided by one goal.
  • Despite the setback, the Buckeyes have won nine of the last 12 games in the series overall.
