Game Notes
♦ Missouri State is 2-7-0 all-time vs. Ohio State, and 0-2-0 vs. Bucknell. The Bears last played Ohio State in 2012 and lost 10-1. MSU and Bucknell renew their series after a 14-year hiatus, as the Bears and Bison will square off for the first time since a 2-1 Bucknell victory in 1999.

♦ Sophomores were instrumental in the Bears’ 3-2 win over Pacific on Monday. Holly Scherer scored the game-winning goal – the third of her career. Liz Young tied the score at two goals apiece, and Charlie Redhead got the Bears started with a goal to put them ahead 1-0. The 2013 sophomore class contributed 36 percent of the team’s 77 points a year ago.

♦ The Bears were part of a strong season-opening weekend for Mid-American Conference teams, as the league went 7-6 against non-conference foes. The six-team MAC allowed only 37 goals in the 13 games.
