The Ohio field hockey team (2-5) was in Bloomington, Indiana Saturday, where they fell short of the Indiana Hoosiers (5-2) losing 3-1.
It was the Hoosiers who came out the aggressors, taking four shots at the goal within the first four minutes of play. Ohio’s goalkeeper Brittany Walker was able to get three saves, before giving up a goal to IU’s Karen Lorite, who scored 3:35 into the half off of a rebound left of the cage.
Ohio would statically dominate Indiana for the rest of the half, outshooting the Hoosiers 8-5 while he the advantage in penalty corners 6-2. However, Ohio was unable to capitalize and score, heading into the half down one.
In the second half, the Hoosiers held the advantage in shots and penalty corners, outshooting the Bobcats 10-3, and having two penalty corners to Ohio’s none. Unlike Ohio, Indiana took advantage of their strong play, turning it into points.
A little over five minutes into the half, Indiana would get a score from the left of the cage by Audra Heilman and would score again roughly 18 minutes later when they got an assisted score off a penalty corner by Sydney Supicia.
Ohio would not be shut out on the afternoon, as Jessica Jue would score with 7:15 left in the game on a rebound left of cage.
Leading the way for the Bobcats were Jue, with the team’s lone score, Ashley Cureton and Kristine Geas with three shots apiece, and goalkeeper Walker with six saves.
The Bobcats will look to rebound next weekend, as they’ll be taking on Towson next Saturday and Robert Morris on Sunday.
