Three Yards and a Cloud of Links

Good Morning Buckeye Nation.

So It Begins: Ohio State’s Women’s Soccer team started their regular season last night. The 23 ranked Buckeyes played their home opener versus Morehead State. The Buckeyes fell behind in the 14th minute with a goal from the Eagles. Jade Flory played a cross from the right wing and found Macy Cobb for the header from six yards. That didn’t deter Ohio State from coming up with head coach Lori Walkers 200th career victory.

“I’ve been here for a while and it’s a pretty special feeling to reach this milestone,” Walker said. “It isn’t something I think about but it was good to come away with the win to open the season.”

Senior Kristen Niederhaus headed in a Megan Fuller corner shot from six yards for the Buckeyes first goal to tie it in the first half.

In the second half the Eagles went up 2-1 but the Buckeyes scored two more goals one from Nichelle Prince who tied it when Ellyn Gruber played a beautiful ball to the freshman who finished from 10 yards. Lindsey Agnew put the Buckeyes ahead playing a ball from the wing to Michela Paradiso who slotted the perfect ball.

Congratulations to head coach Lori Walker for her 200th victory and to the Lady Buckeyes on their season opening victory.

Gymnastics Schedule: Ohio State men’s gymnastics has announced the schedule for the up coming season.

“We have a tough schedule this year,” Ohio State head coach Rustam Sharipov said. “We’re competing against defending national champion Michigan twice during the regular season, and we’re also traveling to Stanford. The team is really excited and they’ve worked hard to reach the next level toward our goal of becoming a national contender.”

The team opens its regular season schedule on the road at the Windy City Invitational Jan. 18 for the fourth consecutive season.

Big Ten New Looks: Big Ten Network breaks down the new uniform looks for Big Ten teams this season. I have to say I think Penn State’s alternate uniforms look terrible in my opinion. The Buckeyes only change will be adding the seven leafs to honor the seven National Championships.

Scrimmage Victory: Ohio State’s field hockey team shutout Miami. 18 players hit the field for the Buckeyes in their tune up before their season opener on Aug 31st in Philadelphia. Sophomore Emma Royce, senior Maria Swartz and sophomore Anni VonederBrink all scored for the scarlet and gray while Swartz and freshman Paige Hamilton both had assists.

Seven: Exactly one week , 7 days, till the Chase for Eight begins. I will leave you with a video of Ohio State’s number 7 scoring a TD vs TTUN.

Until next Time Buckeye Nation…
