No. 5 Penn State Field Hockey Shuts Down Ohio State 3-0

No. 5 Penn State (11-2, 4-1 Big Ten) recorded its sixth shutout of the season on Friday in Columbus when it took down Ohio State 3-0.

Junior Gini Bramley scored twice for the Nittany Lions, and junior Moira Putsch added a third in the later stages of the game to seal the victory over the Buckeyes (6-6, 0-4 Big Ten). Junior goalie Jenny Rizzo made three saves in the victory.

How It Happened

The Nittany Lions got off to a fast start in tonight’s game and didn’t look back from that point.

Gini Bramley scored the opening goal of the game just five minutes into the first half — giving Penn State a 1-0 lead that they would not give up for the rest of the game.

The Buckeyes responded well to conceding the first goal of the evening with two penalty corners, but Penn State’s defense was equal to them, and they kept their lead.

Bramley struck again for Penn State with five minutes remaining in the first half to double her team’s lead. Her seventh goal of the season was created by Moira Putsch’s team-leading 11th assist of the season. The period ended with the Nittany Lions on top by two goals.

At the start of the second half, Penn State did not take their foot off the gas, continuing to apply pressure to the Buckeye defense.

The Nittany Lions recorded the first eight shots of the period without scoring a third insurance goal, but they finally got it off the stick of Putsch with less than ten minutes remaining in the game. Her 12th goal of the season was the icing on the cake for Penn State, effectively sealing the team’s 11th victory of the season.

The final 10 minutes of the period went off without a hitch for the Nittany Lions. They only allowed the Buckeyes to record their first shot of the second half with 1:17 remaining.

Player Of The Game

Gini Bramley | Junior | Attacker/Midfielder

Gini Bramley’s sixth and seventh goals of the 2017 season propelled her team to a big conference victory. The junior has been a nice source of secondary scoring for Char Morett-Curtiss’ squad this season, and she continued to cement her role as a key piece of the team with her performance today.

What’s Next

Penn State is back in action for a rare neutral site game against the University of California tomorrow at noon. The game will also be played in Columbus.
