Missouri State 0, Bryant 1

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Another strong defensive showing by the Missouri State field hockey team went for naught, as the Bears dropped their fifth-straight game, 1-0, to the Bryant Bulldogs on Saturday (Sept. 21).
The Bears (1-6) and Bulldogs (5-1) dueled to a scoreless tie through the first 64:50, but Bryant’s Rosie Bird scored the game-winner with a shot off a penalty corner. Olivia Jankins assisted on the goal, which was taken directly in front of the goal and MSU goalkeeper Andrea Bain (Sr., Victoria, British Columbia).
The loss was MSU’s second-straight by a 1-0 score, and the Bryant goal was only the fifth allowed by MSU in the last 245:18, covering 3 ½ games. Bain notched a solid performance in net, picking up four saves in five attempts.
Bryant out-shot MSU 10-to-5, and gathered five shots on goal compared to zero for the Bears. Holly Scherer recorded two shots for the Bears, while Hillary Lawless, Liz Young and Sydney Richelieu had one each.

Ohio 1, Indiana 3

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Ohio University field hockey team (2-5) dropped a 3-1 contest to Indiana University (5-2) Saturday afternoon at the IU Field Hockey Complex in Bloomington, Ind.
The Bobcats trailed just 1-0 at the half and held a 6-4 advantage in penalty corners on the day, but were out-shot by IU 10-3 in the second half during a two-goal stanza for the Hoosiers.
“I thought Indiana did a nice job of adapting in the second half of what we’d been doing,” head coach Neil Macmillan said. “We played a superb first half but came away empty handed. When we came to life in the last four minutes of the second half, it was too little, too late unfortunately.”
Senior Jessica Jue (Vancouver, British Columbia) posted her second goal in three games to lead the Bobcat offense, while junior Ashley Cureton (Henrico, Va.) registered three shots, including two on goal, for Ohio.
The Bobcats held IU’s ninth-ranked offense under its scoring average (3.50) for the season. Junior goalkeeper Brittany Walker (Elizabethtown, Pa.) – the reigning MAC Defensive Player of the Week - made six saves in 70 minutes of action while allowing three goals.
Senior Katherine Fenzel (Louisville, Ky.) anchored two penalty corners for Ohio in the match’s first two minutes, which led to a shot from junior Lauryl Desch (Charlottesville, Va.) that was blocked.
The Ohio defense stepped up on the ensuing Hoosier possession, as Walker saved three Indiana shots at 2’ and 3’. The Hoosiers finally beat Walker in the fourth minute, as Karen Lorite notched the first goal of the game to give IU a 1-0 lead.
Ohio put together a strong offensive series in the 8th minute, as Jue fired a shot on goal, then took a penalty corner that led to a pair of shots from freshman Franziska Schmiedel (Mulheim, Germany) and junior Kristine Gegas (Worthington, Ohio).
The ‘Cats earned another penalty corner at 13:55, but the resulting shot from sophomore Adele Sammons (Upminster, England) was saved by IU’s Maggie Olson. Sammons struck again at 23’ with a shot that was blocked, but that was Ohio’s last opportunity of the half, as IU preserved its 1-0 lead heading into the break.
Ohio played well offensively in the half, holding an 8-5 lead in shots and 6-2 edge in penalty corners for the stanza.
The Hoosiers increased their lead to two (2-0) on a goal from Audra Heilman in the 40th minute. Ohio stopped a pair of IU shots at 48’, then Walker made another save at 51’ to keep Ohio within two.
Indiana struck again at 58’ to increase its advantage to 3-0. Ohio answered back just five minutes later, as Jue took a rebound left of the Indiana cage and rifled it past Olson to make it 3-1, Indiana, at the 63:38 mark. The score marked Jue’s second goal of the 2013 campaign.
Ohio threatened again at 63’ when Cureton registered a well-placed shot that was saved by Olson. Cureton again fired a shot at 66’, but Indiana picked up a clutch defensive save to preserve the two-goal lead.
Walker made her sixth save of the match in the 68th minute, but Ohio could not score for the remainder of the contest, and Indiana held on for the 3-1 victory.
The ‘Cats return to action with two matches in Coraopolis, Pa., next weekend. Ohio opens with Towson on Saturday at noon before battling host Robert Morris Sunday at noon.
