Championship Saturday afternoon!
Out to dinner in Oxford and the entire field hockey team shows up. Happy group right now.
Which restaurant are they eating in - I ate early at Gaslight Brewhouse
Please tell me it’s Phan Shin. Lie to me if you have to.
Kent State beat App State 3-2 in OT, so once again the championship game comes down to Kent at Miami Saturday at 2:00.
One minute before halftime, Miami scores.
At the half Miami 1 - Kent zero
Stats showing zero shots for Kent thus far, assuming they were “parking the bus” (to use a soccer term), but now trailing they’ll have to open up and send numbers forward. Hope that means Miami gets some good chances in the 3rd.
Miami scores again early in the 3rd period.
12 minutes left - Miami scores again!
Kent scores with 8 minutes to go.
Miami 3 - Kent 1
NCAA is next!
Miami wins 3-1. Another MAC championship!!
I don’t care what sport or level of competition you’re playing, 6 titles in a row (let alone 6 regular season/tournaments in a row) is incredible. Congrats to the program, hope they make noise in the NCAA tourney.
From a pure consistency standpoint this program might actually be our historical best. I’d be hard pressed to think of another run in school history quite like what they’ve done. Just awesome. Now, let’s go win some games in the show.
Miami plays Cal in Evanston Wednesday. Winner plays #2 seed Northwestern on Saturday. UNC is the #1 seed in the other bracket.
