Around the Oval is our weekly look-in at the sports that don't always get the recognition they deserve.
We'll start this week off on a bitter note, as the Ohio State women's soccer team's unbelievable season came to a devastating end last Saturday. The Buckeyes went down in a penalty shoot-out to Oakland, 3-2.
Senior forward Tiffany Cameron scored her 21st goal of the season in the second half to tie the game, 1-1, but despite the Buckeyes tallying 15 second-half shots to two for the Grizzlies, the game went into overtime.
Ohio State and Oakland were both unable to tally a game-winner in either overtime period, sending the game into penalty kicks. Oakland held the advantage in penalty kicks, 3-2, to advance to the second round.
The 2012 seniors wrap up their careers as the winningest class in school history with 59 wins. The group of Cameron, Lauren Granberg, Jessie Greenberg, Kendyl Reed and Aly Walker advanced to the NCAA Tournament all four seasons, reaching the first College Cup and earning the first Big Ten Championship in program history in 2010.
