The stage was set for a Friday night showdown between the Michigan women’s soccer team (6-6 overall, 2-3 Big Ten) and Ohio State (6-4-1, 3-1-1). The Wolverines snapped their two-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory.
If the Wolverines (2-0-1 Big Ten, 6-1-1 overall) sat comfortably before, now with a three-goal advantage, they switched into cruise control against Ohio State (0-2-1,1-6-2). So much so that the Buckeyes were able to pull one back in the dying embers of the game, making the final scoreline 3-1 in Michigan’s favor.
Sophomore forward Umar Farouk Osman netted two goals in a showing that propelled the Michigan men’s soccer team (1-0-0 Big Ten, 5-1-0 overall) to a victory over Rutgers (0-1-0, 1-4-1), 2-0 on Friday night.
