Nov. 1, 2009
COLUMBUS, Ohio - The 23rd ranked Indiana women's soccer team (10-5-2, 2-4-2 Big Ten) lost a 6-0 decision to No. 13 Ohio State on Sunday afternoon at the Jessie Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus. Junior Chloe McKay had two shots in the game, one on goal.
Ohio State (14-2-2, 7-1-1 Big Ten) held most of the possession in the first half and were able to get a pair of goals to take a 2-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. The first goal came in the 23rd minute following a loose ball served into the box off a corner kick that found the foot of Ashley Bowyer for her fourth goal of the year.
Two minutes later Paige Maxwell broke free on the left side of the box and drilled a shot to the far post for her sixth goal on the year to give Ohio State a 2-0 lead.
Indiana goalkeeper Lauren Hollandsworth made a pair of diving saves in the first half, the first coming on a hard shot from the top of the 18 to the near post. The second was on a header from a corner kick that looked destined for the back of the net but she reached her right hand up and poked it over the cross bar. Hollandsworth finished the game with four saves in goal for Indiana.
The Buckeyes' third goal of the game came in the second half on another corner kick, this time Lauren Steuer served in the corner and it bounced off a couple Hoosiers and trickled into the net to give Ohio State a 3-0 lead. The lead jumped to 4-0 on a rebound goal by Lauren Granberg in the 61st minute. Ohio State's Kayla Eckman put home the fifth goal of the game on a set play off a free kick from 35 yards out. The final goal came in the 90th minute on a breakaway by Genna Brand.
Indiana returns to Armstrong Stadium on Tuesday for a key game against No. 18 Purdue starting a 7 p.m. and admission is free.
