The Bobcats look to end their season on a high note with two matches at home to close out this season’s shortened campaign. They take on Kent State on Thursday and will finish the regular season with Buffalo on Sunday.
Here is everything you need to know:
Opponent: vs. Kent State (2-4, 2-4 Mid-American Conference)
Kickoff is at 2 p.m.
Kent State has lost its last four matches, including a 3-1 loss to Ohio in mid-March.
The Golden Flashes had their matches against Buffalo and Miami postponed last week, so they will have had 10 days off going into Thursday’s match.
Kent State’s match on Sunday has also been postponed, so Thursday’s contest will be its season finale.
Player to Watch: The Golden Flashes have only scored five goals all year, but senior forward Yasmine Hall has scored three of them.
Opponent: vs. Buffalo, (4-1-1, 4-1-1 MAC)
Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
Buffalo has won four of its last five matches and has not lost in over a month. This includes a double overtime win over Ohio on March 21.
The Bulls are currently in second place in the MAC but given that each of Bowling Green’s final four matches were postponed, they could qualify for the MAC championship game with two wins this weekend.
Player to Watch: Senior forward Marcy Barberic has tallied six goals and an assist for the Bulls this season.
Notes on the Bobcats:
Ohio currently sits at 2-6 and has lost its last four matches. However, one of its two wins came over Thursday’s opponents, Kent State. That match was one of Ohio’s best performances of the season and they came out with a 3-1 victory.
The Bobcats will finish with a losing record for the first time in three seasons. However, ending the season on a high note will give them something to build on in a shortened offseason.
Player to Watch: Junior forward Abby Townsend has consistently been Ohio’s most dangerous player this season. The Bobcats will need her to continue to play well if they want to pick up some results this weekend.
