Michigan field hockey holds MSU without a shot in 2-0 win and more Friday results
The Michigan field hockey team scored two second-half goals and did not allow host Michigan State to take a single shot in a 2-0 win Friday in East Lansing.
The No. 7-ranked Wolverines got both of their goals from freshmen. Aline Fobe scored the game-winner in the 41st minute and Emy Guttman, a Pioneer High School graduate, added an insurance goal in the 61st minute.
Michigan had 10 shots in each half to hold a 20-0 advantage. It’s the second time this season the Wolverines (12-3, 4-1 Big Ten) have held an opponent without a shot this season. They also blanked Ball State on Sept. 17.
The win gives Michigan a half-game lead over Penn State in the Big Ten standings. They can clinch at least a share of the conference title when they host Indiana next Friday in their final Big Ten regular season game of the season.
Ohio State 1, Michigan 0: Ohio State’s Chelsy Swackhamer broke the scoreless tie with a 25-yard shot in the 78th minute. Goalkeeper Haley Kopmeyer made five saves for Michigan (9-6-2, 4-4-1 Big Ten), giving her a program-record 100 saves on the season. (Details)
