Ohai too much for Buckeyes

[OHIO STATE-NORTH CAROLINA] No. 1 North Carolina got goals from Amber Brooks, Kealia Ohai and Emmalie Pfankuch and defeated 2010 NCAA Division I semifinalist Ohio State, 3-0, on the road before 2,892 fans who braved rainstorms that swept through the Columbus area on Sunday.

Adelaide Gay had the shutout in only her second career start for the Tar Heels.

Gay's save in the 55th minute proved to be a key turning point in the game as she tipped Paige Maxwell’s shot shot off the crossbar it kept the score at 1-0 in favor of UNC before the Tar Heels put the game away with two more goals.

Ohio made it 2-0 with the goal of the game when she beat her defender on the dribble on the left side of the box where she finished to the far post from 15 yards out.

Ohio State coach Lori Walker said there were a lot of positives the Buckeyes could take away from the game.

"You're not going to play another team with this type of team speed until the NCAA tournament," she said. "That's great experience for our squad."
