Fall is truly here, the leaves are starting to change and sport season in Ohio is in full swing. While Athens was bursting at the seams with the influx of parents this weekend, the Bobcats reaped several home victories across several sports.



Visitors from John Carroll were thrashed this weekend as the Bobcats kicked off the hockey season. The Bobcats won both of their games by a heavy lead winning 7 – 0 on Friday, and by 13 – 0 on Saturday’s game. Only allowing four shots on goal during Friday’s game, the Bobcats showed both an impressive offense and defense in the new season. THopefully they can continue their domination into next week’s match against Kent State.


The Bobcats won their Parent’s Weekend game against Gardner-Webb, tying for first in the MAC East Division. With over 200 yards rushing and over 300 yards passing resulting in 37 points, Ohio’s offensive game was on point this week after a loss last week to Tennessee in Knoxville. A strong comeback for Ohio as they look toward next week’s rivalry game against Miami.

Women’s Volleyball

Ohio’s Women’s Volleyball team strung together a double win this weekend, stomping both Akron and Buffalo this weekend. Playing both games at home the Bobcats won big by beating two conference competitors. Both games the Bobcats went without their opponents winning a set, an impressive display following a close win against Virginia Tech last week and a loss to Radford the same weekend. Next week they have back to back away games at Miami and Bowling Green.


Field Hockey

This week in field hockey the Bobcats clinched a 3 – 2 overtime win against Ball State. Winning goal fired by Junior Maria Russell ended the match shortly before the end of the first overtime. This win came after almost 90 minutes of play, and before the Bobcats have had a chance to play an conference opponents.
