Hofstra closed out its season-opening road trip to Ohio with a hotly contested 1-0 loss to Ohio State.

The game, the Pride’s second in the Wolstein Classic, was called in the 84th minute due to travel restrictions stemming from a lightning delay.

After a scoreless first half, the Buckeyes would get the game’s only goal as Jake Scheper converted on a penalty kick, beating Hofstra keeper Alex Ashton, who had five saves on the day.

Ashton’s 12 saves on the weekend earned him a spot on the All-Tournament Team along with sophomore Matthew Vowinkel of New Hyde Park, who scored in Friday’s draw with Dayton. The Flyers were the tournament champions after defeating Furman on Sunday.

The Pride is back in action on Thursday, heading to No. 25 Colgate for a 5 p.m. matchup.
