The No. 25-ranked Ohio State women’s soccer team is still sitting on 199 wins in its program history.
OSU opened Big Ten conference play on the road Sunday with a 1-1 draw against the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium.
Minnesota senior midfielder Shari Eckstrom scored in the 32nd minute to put the Gophers up, 1-0. Eckstrom gained control of the ball and fired a shot from outside OSU’s penalty area to the right side OSU senior goalkeeper Katie Baumgardner.
OSU sophomore midfielder Danica Wu delivered the equalizer in the 82nd minute after firing a shot on the run that bounced off of the crossbar and into the goal.
The teams then played 20 minutes of extra time and although the Buckeyes took three corner kicks, the teams couldn’t separate themselves.
The Buckeyes (5-3-1) will try for win No. 200 for the third time on Friday against Illinois at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. First kick is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
