• UC Davis would strike first with just over 10 minutes gone in the first half,  with Kate Young putting one past Ohio Redshirt goalkeeper Lina Trucco (Lake Bluff, Ill.).

•  However, Kathleen Humphries of UC Davis would put one by Trucco with 20 minutes left in the game to put the Aggies up 3-0
•  The last 20 minutes were filled with a lot of action in the middle of the field and finished with a UC Davis victory.

•  Ohio also finished the game with a 10-4 lead in Penalty corners.

“The last pass was what let us down. We didn’t put the ball in front of goal. We didn’t finish on goal. We certainly had the opportunities.” – 12th-year head coach Neil Macmillan

Ohio will travel to Columbus to play Ohio State on Sunday (Sep. 4).
