SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa field-hockey team fell to No. 20 Ohio State, 2-0, in Columbus, Ohio, on Sunday.

With the loss, the Hawkeyes’ season record falls to 4-7 overall, 1-2 in Big Ten play. The win improved Ohio State’s record to 9-4, 2-1 in the conference.

Despite combining for 13 first-half shots, neither team could find the back of the net in the first frame of play. Both defenses held until the 64:57 mark in the second half when Ohio State’s Maria Briones scored on a deflection following a Buckeye penalty corner.

Briones later assisted on Berta Queralt’s goal to give Ohio State a 2-0 lead under two minutes later.

The shutout was the first against the Hawkeyes since Aug. 30 when Iowa lost to No. 2 North Carolina, 5-0.

Iowa will return to Grant Field this weekend for two more Big Ten battles. Iowa will face No. 8 Michigan State (11-3, 2-0) on Saturday at 4 p.m., then face Penn State (4-9, 1-2) on Oct. 18 at 1 p.m.
Iowa’s game with Penn State will be shown on broadcast delay on the Big Ten Network at 7 p.m. Oct. 19.
