Three Yards and a Cloud of Links

Good morning Buckeye Nation. Bet you don’t know what today is!! That’s right its opening season for the Buckeye men and women’s cross country teams and women’s field hockey. So sit back and relax and enjoy our wall to wall coverage and break down of these sports.

Seriously I know these other sports don’t get the attention like football and basketball but they are important to a lot of folks especially to the ones out there working so hard on something they have such passion for and few recognize their sports. I do Three Yards to bring this information to you and to recognize all of Buckeye Nation sports because everyone who wears Scarlet and Gray is awesome.

Opener Falls Short: Buckeyes men’s soccer team opened their season last night and fell to UNC Wilmington 2-1 in double overtime. Senior Sage Gardner had the lone Buckeye goal.

“I am really proud of the way the team played tonight,” John Bluem, Ohio State head coach, said. “I thought they put in a great effort and the turning point really did not come until the red card late in regulation. Credit has to be given to UNCW though and their forward Colin Bonner; he had two good chances and finished both of them.”

The Buckeye soccer team gets back on the field Sunday taking on a Northern Illinois team that beat Cincinnati 3-0 yesterday.

“I know our guys will regroup and come out strong Sunday,” Bluem said. “Northern Illinois played very well against Cincinnati and the players know they need to move on from tonight and be prepared for the next match.”

Sweep: Ohio States women’ volleyball team took out Liberty last night in their season opener. The 23rd ranked Buckeyes won the three sets 25-22,25-22,26-24.
Senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary tied a career high 21 kills and had 8 digs while junior outside hitter Erin Sekinger had career high 15 kills and junior Taylor Sherwin had 40 assists.
Ohio State returns to action Saturday with a 1pm match vs. Green Bay in DeKalb, Ill. The Buckeyes close out the NIU Invitational Saturday night, facing host Northern Illinois at 8pm

Opening Day: As I said earlier the Buckeye field hockey team opens its season today, its 43rd. They will be taking part in the Conference Cup hosted by Temple in Philadelphia, PA. The Buckeyes take on Temple today at 2:30 and then finish the tournament tomorrow vs #2 Maryland or #20 UNH.

Get Your Tickets: Ohio State ice hockey single season tickets go on sale Tuesday at 10am. The Buckeyes will have 22 home games during this inaugural Big Ten hockey season.

To get you in the mood: OK not like you really need to get in the mood for the football opener versus Buffalo today but I will leave you with some videos to enjoy.
