Michigan field hockey holds MSU without a shot in 2-0 win and more Friday results

By Staff

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)

Eastern Michigan 5, Ball State 1: Bianca Rossi scored twice in the first 19 minutes to give the Eagles (3-11-2, 3-5-1 MAC) an early lead at Scicluna Field. Emily Dzik, Angela Vultaggio and Stephanie Clarke also added goals. (Details)

Eastern Michigan 3, Buffalo 0: Rachel Iaquaniello had 14 kills and Paige Roback added eight kills as the Eagles (18-6, 6-3 MAC) won their fifth straight match and third straight in three sets. (Details)

Northwestern 165, Eastern Michigan 130: The Eagles won five of 16 events against their Big Ten visitors. Jeffrey Craig (one-meter, three-meter diving) and Jacob Hanson (200 backstroke, 200 IM) won multiple events. (Details)

Michigan 171, Toledo 121: Pioneer High School graduate Ashley Cohagen (100 backstroke, 200 backstroke) and Alexa Meheasan (50 freestyle, 100 freestyle) won two events apiece for the Wolverines in their home opener. (Details)
