No. 8 Cougars tie 0-0 with Buckeyes


PROVO, Utah - The No. 8 BYU Cougars drew a 0-0 tie against the Ohio State Buckeyes in the 2017 season home opener Monday night at South Field.

“We wanted to get off to a strong start with a lot of energy and a lot of emotion, and I thought we did that tonight,” BYU head coach Jennifer Rockwood said. “I thought this was our best performance overall, but we have to be a little more consistent.”

BYU vs. Ohio State Box Score

BYUtv Postgame Recap

Madie Siddoway recorded the first Cougar shot in the fourth minute from just outside the goal box. Her shot just missed the crossbar, but was one of the best first-half opportunities for BYU.

Elise Flake took a shot from just outside the left corner of the 18-yard box in the 39th minute. The ball slammed into the right post, barely keeping the Cougars from getting on the board.

Neither Ohio State or BYU scored in the first half, and both had five shots heading into the break.

Lizzy Braby took two shots in the second half. Her shot from the right just outside the 18-yard box went over the crossbar, while a straight shot to the goal in the 61st minute ended in the keeper’s hands.

Rachel Bingham drove the ball up the field and passed to Nadia Gomes for a shot in the 77th minute that went left of the goal.

The second half ended with 13 Cougar shots and seven for the Buckeyes, but no goals, sending the game into overtime.

The first half of overtime held shots from Gomes and Braby. Hannah Clark had two saves; one in the third minute and a second off a corner kick in the 10th minute.

One more shot in the second half of overtime from Flake grazed the far right post. Neither team managed a golden goal, as both teams wound up with clean sheets.

PROVO, Utah – Ohio State comes into town as No. 8 BYU women's soccer hosts the Buckeyes in the home opener Monday.

BYU at Ohio State Game Notes

BYU Storylines

The Cougars dropped their season opener 3-1 at Penn State last Friday. Despite the score, BYU hung close in possession and shots, particularly in the second half. Cameron Tucker scored her first collegiate goal off a cross from fellow freshman Mikayla Colohan.

Looking to bounce back against the Buckeyes, the Cougars haven't dropped back-to-back games since 2014.

Ohio State Storylines

In their season opener at Arizona State, the Buckeyes won 2-1 in overtime. Meghan Kammerdeiner's 98th minute goal clinched it for Ohio State, who got a goal and assist from both Kammerdeiner and Sammy Edwards.

Like BYU, Ohio State's top scorer in 2016, Lindsay Agnew, was a senior. Edwards is the top-returning scorer, with six goals last season.

The Buckeyes were picked to finish eighth in Big Ten preseason poll.
