The Ohio State field hockey team was victorious over the Calgary Dinos, 3-1, in exhibition play Saturday. All of the scoring action occurred in the second half, following a strong defensive stand by both teams in the first. Buckeyes Meg Lake, Florencia Stier and Cammie Trainer scored OSU’s three goals, kicking off the 2004 season.
The first 35 minutes of competition got off to a slow start as the ball was frequently exchanged between the two teams. Ohio State recorded five shots to Calgary’s six, and was awarded three penalty corner opportunities, while the Dinos received four.
There was an offensive surge by both teams in the second half as the Buckeyes fired10 shots and Calgary took nine. Ohio State quickly put the first point on the board, with Stier (So., Buenos Aires, Argentina/Washington) taking advantage of a penalty corner 3:40 minutes into the half, scoring the Buckeyes’ first goal. Less than three minutes later, the Dinos pushed the ball past the OSU defense to even up the score. On Ohio State’s fifth penalty corner of the afternoon, Trainer (Sr., Hudson, Ohio/Hudson) netted the ball above the Calgary goalie, and Laura Rosenwinkel (Sr., Glenside, Pa./Springfield) and Deen Rebstock (Sr., St. Louis, Mo./Witfield) were credited with the assists. Finally, Lake (Sr., St. Louis, Mo./Villa Duchesne) sealed the Buckeyes’ victory with a score at the 3:78 mark.
Both Buckeye goalie Lindsay Williams (Jr., Harrisburg, Pa./Susquenhanna Township) and Dino goalie Burgundy Biletski were statistically even as both goaltenders compiled three saves on the day.
Ohio State officially commences regular season action when they travel to the East Coast to face Maine at 11 a.m. Aug. 29 and Vermont at 11 a.m. Aug. 30.
