BUCKEYES FALL TO HOOSIERS, 3-2 COLUMBUS, Ohio ? Indiana (7-2, 2-1) defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes (2-5-1, 0-2) on a goal by Tracy Grose with just 3:09 left in the game. Grose took a pass from Kelly Wilson and drove with the ball across the crease before finding the net from 10 yards out to make the final score 3-2. It was Grose?s first gamewinning goal of the season.
The Hoosiers put up the first goal with Kris Fosdick?s fifth goal in the last five games. Wendy Dillinger and Grose assisted on the goal. The Buckeyes tied the game with 2:53 left in the first half, and then took the lead on Jodie Stranges? direct kick in the 58th minute. Down 2-1, Indiana battled back to tie the game with a Dillinger goal in the 65th minute before Grose added the final goal.
"We made it as difficult as we could," said head coach Joe Kelley. "They (Ohio State) never gave up. We had plenty of chances to put it away and didn't, but overall it was a nice effort. It was great to see Tracy (Grose) score the goal the way she did."
The Hoosiers are home to battle No. 2 Notre Dame on Tuesday evening. Game time is 7:00 pm.
