FH: Ohio State Falls to Kent State

Maddy Humphrey scored her second goal of the season in Tuesday’s loss

Box Score

Columbus, Ohio – The 23rd ranked Ohio State women’s field hockey team dropped its first contest of 2017 on Tuesday at Buckeye Varsity Field by a score of 2-1 to Kent State. Ines Delpech scored the game winner for the Golden Flashes with 4:39 left to play in the game.

 

A game that Ohio State (2-1 overall) dominated on the stat sheet, the Buckeyes had a hard time cashing in on their opportunities. Kylie Leblanc of Kent State racked up five saves in the Golden Flashes second win of the year (2-3 overall).

 

For the second game in a row, the Buckeyes found themselves facing a deficit in the first half. At the 19:01 mark, the Golden Flashes received a goal from Jamie Fries off a penalty corner with the assist going to Jessica Nesbitt.

 

The Buckeyes outshot the Golden Flashes to the tune of 13-3 in the 70-minute affair. In the 25th minute of the first half, Maddy Humphrey scored an acrobatic goal after receiving a delicately placed long-distance pass from Juliette Duquesne. After Humphrey secured the ball on her stick, she was on the left side of the circle and had a one-on-one with Leblanc of Kent State. Humphrey poked the ball out to the right, dodged the goalie, and then dove to her right and whipped the goal in for her second goal of the season.

 

Humphrey’s career goal total is now up to 36 which ties her for 10th all-time in program history with her former teammate Peanut Johnson (2012-15). In addition to goals scored, Humphrey’s career point total now sits at 92, only four points behind Lucy Clayton for 10th all-time in program history.

 

Closing out the first half with a penalty corner, Maartje Bongers nearly gave Ohio State the lead heading into the locker room. With Humphrey taking the Buckeyes’ second penalty corner of the first half, Bongers’ shot easily beat the keeper but was just a tad bit too wide and ricocheted off the post and out of bounds to end the half.

 

The Buckeyes dominated ball possession in the second half and made a final charge after Kent State took the one goal lead. Trailing by one with less than five minutes to play, Ohio State pulled Liz Tamburro from the net for an extra attacker for the final push.

 

The one-man advantage helped Ohio State secure four straight penalty corners in the closing minutes. Of the four penalty corners, only Esther Clotet Alsina’s shot made it to the keeper and Leblanc turned it away. The other three opportunities for Ohio State were all blocked before reaching the goal keeper.

UP NEXT

Ohio State hits the road for the next two weeks starting with away games at Miami (OH) and No. 19 Wake Forest this Friday (Sept. 8) and Sunday (Sept. 10).

ABOUT THE WOLSTEINS
The annual Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic, now in its 12th year, is named in honor of the family that first brought professional soccer to Ohio in 1979. From 1979-1988, the late Bert Wolstein (2004) was the owner and president of the Cleveland Force of the Major Indoor Soccer League. Since them, the Wolstein support of Ohio State has been nothing short of generous. The most recent major act of a giving was a $1.5 million gift to the Department of Athletics, resulting in the naming of the field at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, as part of a $4.9 million total gift to the university in September 2012. The Wolsteins previously made a major contribution in 2001 to the Ohio Stadium renovation project, prompting the dedication of the Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Football Center in the southwest tower.

 

EARLY BIRDS

The Buckeyes are 18-11-7 all-time in their early season home tournament, including a 9-5-6 mark in the last 10 seasons. Ohio State has captured the tournament title six times (2006-2009, 2011 and 2012). Last year, the team lost in overtime in both games against Virginia Tech and UC Santa Barbara.

 

SOME NOTES ON THE BUCKEYES

·         Ohio State returns four starters from the 2016 squad and welcomes 18 newcomers. Fifteen of the 18 newcomers are freshmen. The Buckeyes lost nine letterwinners and seven starters from the team that finished 5-13-1 overall and 3-4-1 in conference play.

·         The Scarlet and Gray bring back their leading point scorer in senior forward Nate Kohl, a second team All-Big Ten selection with 14 points (6g, 2a), a year ago. Junior midfielder Abdi Mohamed, honored as a second team selection, also returns after scoring 11 points (4g, 3a). Goalkeeper Parker Siegfried is back too after earning All-Big Ten Freshmen honors in 2016.

·         The Buckeyes were picked seventh in the Big Ten preseason poll announced last week. Maryland was the preseason favorite followed by Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Michigan and Penn State.

·         Senior back Hunter Robertson joined Kohl and Mohamed on the Big Ten Preseason Honor List.

·         The 2017 incoming class ranked seventh in the country by College Soccer News. The Buckeyes were one of four schools in the nation to have three straight Top 10 classes along with North Carolina, Wake Forest and Virginia.  The group hails from three different countries, while five members are natives of Ohio. The incoming Buckeyes feature seven defenders, five forwards, four midfielders and two goalkeepers.

·         The tournament begins a four-game homestand for the Buckeyes. Ohio State welcomes Lehigh Sept. 1 and Wright State Sept. 4.

August 21, 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

J.T. Barrett is first three-time captain in school history; five on defense, four from offense

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State will be led by a record number of captains in 2017 with nine players selected to lead the Scarlet and Gray on and off the gridiron. The corps of leaders, all voted on by their teammates, features five on defense, including four defensive linemen, and four on offense, led by the first three-time captain in program history.

 

2017 Ohio State Captains

§  Graduated quarterback J.T. Barrett;

§  Fourth-year junior H-back Parris Campbell;

§  True senior defensive end Jalyn Holmes;

§  Fourth-year junior defensive end Sam Hubbard;

§  Graduated defensive end Tyquan Lewis;

§  Fourth-year junior receiver Terry McLaurin;

§  Graduated center Billy Price;

§  Graduated defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle; and

§  Fifth-year senior linebacker Chris Worley.

 

The captains features the first three-time captain in this, the 128th season of football at Ohio State: quarterback J.T. Barrett, from Wichita Falls, Texas, who was previously named a captain in 2015 and again last year. Barrett has started 30 games at quarterback and has a record of 26-4 in those games. He is a two-time winner of the Chicago Tribune Silver Football as the Big Ten Conference’s best player and earned his degree in Autumn 2016 communications.

 

DE Tyquan Lewis and C Billy Price are the ninth and 10th two-time captains in school history. Lewis, from Tarboro, N.C., is the reigning Big Ten defensive lineman of the year and is a veteran of 41 games played and 26 starts. Lewis, who graduated last August with his degree in sociology, is one of the top players in Ohio State history in terms of quarterback sacks with 16.5, good for 14th-place in school history and just 11 away from No. 2 all-time.

 

Price, who graduated earlier this summer with his degree in business administration, has started 41 consecutive games – every game of his career – and he is just nine away from Luke Fickell’s program record of 50 starts and 50 consecutive starts. Price was a first-team All-American last year and was named a Big Ten Conference Distinguished Scholar for having a grade point average above 3.70 for the 2016-17 academic year. Price is from Austintown, Ohio.

 

DT Tracy Sprinkle is the fourth captain for the season who has his degree. He graduated last spring with his bachelor’s in family resource management. A fifth-year senior from Elyria, Sprinkle earned a starting position last season only to have his year end in the first game with a knee injury. He’s battling back to be a starter once again and enters the season having played in 17 games.

 

LB Chris Worley is the fifth, fifth-year senior named a captain. The veteran of 39 games and 14 career starts is coming off a season in which he was fourth on the team in tackles with 70 and played his best in the biggest games. Worley had an interception vs. Michigan State; he had a career-high 11 tackles in the win over Michigan and 10 in the College Football Playoff semifinal vs. Clemson. He also had 10 tackles vs. Oklahoma and a career-high seven solo tackles against Wisconsin. Worley is from Cleveland.

 

Two more fourth-year players and defensive ends – Jalyn Holmes, from Norfolk, Va., and Sam Hubbard, from Cincinnati – were named captains, giving the team four players from the defensive line as captains.

 

Holmes is a true senior who has played in 37 games, including 11 as a true freshman in 2014 when Ohio State won the initial College Football Playoff. Holmes is coming off an honorable mention all-Big Ten season in 2016 and enters 2017 with 55 career tackles, 11 tackles-for-loss, four quarterback hurries and two fumble recoveries.

 

Hubbard was a first-team Academic All-American last season when he started all 13 games and recorded 46 tackles, eight tackles-for-loss and four quarterback hurries. The fourth-year junior was also named honorable mention all-Big Ten. He has 16 career TFLs and 10.0 quarterback sacks.

 

Two fourth-year receivers – Parris Campbell, from Akron, Ohio, and Terry McLaurin, from Indianapolis – round out the captains and give the offensive side of the ball a total of four captains.

 

Campbell is a fourth-year junior who is a veteran of 21 career games with 12 starts to his credit. A big-play threat, Campbell averaged nearly 10 yards per reception last year and also led the Big Ten, while ranking 11th nationally, in kickoff returns (27.8 yards-per return). His 584 return yards rank third in Ohio State history, as do his 149 return yards vs. Indiana. Campbell is majoring in sociology.

 

McLaurin enters the 2017 campaign as one of the most experienced receivers on the Buckeyes’ roster, evidenced by 25 appearances over the last two seasons. He caught 11 passes for 114 yards (10.4 yards/reception) and scored the first two touchdowns of his career last year when he hauled in passes against Rutgers and Nebraska. A fourth-year junior, McLaurin is majoring in communications and spent a portion of this past summer interning at Nike.
