Wittenberg Playday

  • The women traveled to Springfield, Ohio this weekend to take on a few DII and DIII programs to kick off the fall ball season, after just one day of full team practice following a week of tryouts. The format was 4 short games, with a 25 minute running clock and no timeouts. Michigan opened against Kenyon, and managed to start the day off right, with a 6-3 win. Next up for the first of 2 back-to-back games, was Otterbein. Michigan had a nice display of scoring, and not too much action in the defensive end, finishing with a commanding 12-1 win. With only a quick break to change over the opposition's bench, the 3rd game of the day started soon after, against host, Wittenberg. The Wolverines jumped out to a nice 4-1 lead, and though Wittenberg made a late charge, the Wolverines managed to hold on, finishing on top, with a score of 4-3. The last game of the day brought Findlay, a new DII program in the area. Michigan finished the day on a strong note, with a defensive shutout, and a final score of 9-0. With a smaller team this year, and a few players missing the trip, the Wolverines had just 18 players dressed for the day. Every player played in every game, and there was a nice array of scoring coming from both veterans and new players.
