COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Hofstra University men fell, 1-0, to Ohio State at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in the Pride’s final game of the Wolstein Classic Sunday afternoon.
After a lengthy lightning delay, the game was called in the 84th minute due to travel restrictions.
Hofstra (0-1-1) had several early chances, outshooting Ohio State (1-1) in the beginning of the first half, including putting two shots on goal.
The Buckeyes broke the scoreless tie in the 65th minute, earning a penalty kick, which Jake Scheper converted past Alex Ashton.
Two defensive saves kept it a one-goal game, while senior goalkeeper Alex Ashton also made five saves.
The game entered a lightning delay with 6:44 remaining and never resumed.
Ashton’s 12 saves on the weekend earned him a spot on the all-tournament team along with sophomore Matthew Vowinkel, who scored in Friday’s draw with Dayton. The Flyers were the tournament champions after defeating Furman Sunday.
