#3 Michigan Field Hockey shuts out, outshoots Indiana 27-0 on the road

The domination continued for the #3 ranked Wolverines. 

After an unbelievable showing last Sunday where Michigan held #12 Stanford shotless for most of the game in shutout victory, Michigan mauled Indiana earlier this afternoon.

Meg Dowthwaite got her team-best 14th goal of the season about 22 minutes in to put Michigan up 1-0.

The Wolverines put the game away with just 10 minutes left in the game when Halle O'Neill scored her second career goal on a slow-roller that trickled over the goal line.

To say put the game away implies the outcome was ever in doubt. It was not. 

Michigan allowed ZERO shots in 70 minutes of action, outshooting Indiana 27-0. Adding to the defensive discipline, Indiana got zero penalty corner attempts as well (out-cornered 14-0). A corner is when a foul occurs inside the circle. Incredible display by what might just be nation's top defense. 

Michigan obviously took the win today, 2-0 over Indiana. 

There are just two B1G games left and Michigan sits at the top of the B1G standings with a 6-0 B1G record and a 12-2 overall record. 

Next up is a road game at #22 Iowa on Sunday. Despite their record, Iowa is a sneaky team. Top-10 Northwestern needed OT to escape today. 

A win on Sunday and it will be a very special day...

I was at the Stanford game - 1st half anyway- and I was amazed how much better M was than the Cardinal. Every pass by M was on the stick of a teammate. 3-5 corners, 90+% in the offensive zone.

That sport is crazy lopsided when one team is so much better than the other. and M was that vs #12 in the land.
