Ohio 2, Louisville 6

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Ohio University field hockey team (1-3) dropped its final contest in the Derby City, 6-2, to the host Louisville Cardinals (3-1) Sunday afternoon at Trager Stadium.
The Bobcats finish the two-match trip to Louisville with a 1-1 record after defeating William & Mary on Saturday. 
“This weekend was a good learning experience for our team,” head coach Neil Macmillan said. “We did a nice job on Saturday of being competitive and taking care of the game. Today we were a bit gassed from our game on Saturday, and that was very much due to the way Louisville played. They played a very fast game and really put a lot of pressure on us.”
Senior Luli Gomez Teruel (Salta, Argentina) led Ohio with two goals on three shots in the contest and has now posted at least one score in three of the ‘Cats four matches this season. Gomez Teruel’s second goal was assisted on by sophomore Adele Sammons (Upminster, England).
“Luli had an exceptional game,” Macmillan said. “She used a great opportunity on her first goal to pop up on the end of a corner to put in a shot that was heading wide. Then, she scored off a penalty stroke later on for her second goal. She had a great weekend, as her goal on Saturday was very well taken off a nice unselfish feed from Katherine Fenzel.”
Ohio opened the scoring in the game, as Gomez Teruel buried her first shot of the contest (7’) into the back of the cage after receiving the nice feed from Sammons at the top of the circle. 
Louisville posted an equalizing goal at 12’, then added another at 19’ after Ohio could not capitalize on a penalty corner opportunity at 16’. The ‘Cats deflected a string of Louisville scoring opportunities in the 23rd and 24th minutes and entered halftime trailing by just one score (2-1). 
After a shot from Gomez Teruel in the 36th minute went wide, Louisville posted two more scores at 41’ and 45’, then notched a goal at 50’ to build a four-score lead (5-1) over the Bobcats. After Louisville recorded a goal at 59’, Gomez Teruel posted her second goal in the 64th minute on a penalty shot to make the score 6-2 in favor of the Cardinals. 
Ohio returns to action next weekend with a pair of matches in Evanston, Ill. The ‘Cats open with a match against California on Saturday (Sept. 14) at 2 p.m., then battle 11th-ranked Northwestern on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Miami 0, Boston 1

EVANSTON, Ill. – A hard-fought, defensive battle between the Miami University field hockey team and 16th-ranked Boston University was scoreless until nearly the end, but a goal in the 60th minute gave the Terriers a 1-0 win. BU improves to 3-1 on the season, while the RedHawks fall to 2-2.
Miami had the first great chance to score when it earned a penalty corner in the 10th minute, but senior midfielder Jordan Long’s shot attempt was blocked. The Terriers brought the ball down to their attack zone and got off back-to-back shots, but each time senior goalkeeper Sarah Mueller was in position to make the save. The ‘Hawks best chance in the first half came in the 26th minute when sophomore midfielder Bea Dechant had a great sweep to the top of the cage, but BU goalkeeper Valentina Cerda made a diving save.
The RedHawks earned three penalty corners during the first 20 minutes of the second half, resulting in a pair of shots. Junior back Ali Froede and junior back Shannon Regan each put the ball on net, but Cerda was able to make the stops. In the 60th minute the ball got loose out of a scramble and BU’s Anne Fruitema was able to tip it in at the goal line to put the Terriers on the board.
Miami went on the attack as it looked for the tying tally. Junior forward Valentina Neira and junior midfielder Gabby Goldach had back-to-back shots, but once again Cerda stayed strong in net. The RedHawks had one final opportunity in the 65th minute when they earned a penalty corner, but Froede’s shot was just wide.
Boston University had a narrow, 11-7, advantage in total shots. Despite that, Miami was the offensive aggressors most of the game, holding a 7-1 lead in penalty corner attempts. Froede led the RedHawks with two shots, while Mueller made seven saves in net.
Miami remains in Evanston, Ill. on Monday when it takes on 11th-ranked Northwestern at 1 p.m. (EDT).
