Field Hockey: Ohio looks to rebound against a struggling Central Michigan team

After back-to-back losses to Indiana and Wake Forest, Ohio is looking for a bounce-back road win against Central Michigan. Here’s what to know about Central Michigan.

Match Info:

Opponent: Central Michigan (1-11)

Location: Cristy Freese Field (Mount Pleasant, Michigan)

Time and Date: Oct. 13, 2 p.m.

After two losses at home this past weekend, Ohio is on the road looking to get a win against Central Michigan. Ohio is coming off a match in which it was able to stay competitive with a top 25-ranked school, Wake Forest. With this momentum boost, Ohio looks to make a push into the Mid-American Conference tournament, playing against another MAC team this week. With Ohio at 2-2 in the conference, a victory over Central Michigan would put it above .500, giving them a good opportunity to reach the tournament.

Players to Watch:

Katelyn Whittle has been a standout offensive player for the Bobcats, as the forward has put up 10 goals in 10 matches this season, tying her for sixth in the country for goals per game. Expect her to continue to add to this count, as Central Michigan has given up 52 goals so far this season and is on an 11-match losing streak.

Central Michigan’s forward, Zoey Emrick has a team-high eight points in 12 games. The freshman has been a bright spot for the struggling team and looks to continue her outstanding season with a win against Ohio. Expect a shootout between Whittle and Emrick during Saturday’s match.
