Johns Hopkins defeats Ohio State lacrosse 10-9 in 3 OT

Jesse King led the Buckeyes with five goals and an assist - Ohio State Athletics

The Buckeyes avenged a three goal deficit in the 4th Quarter but Johns Hopkins defeated the Buckeyes 10-9 in 3 OT.

In a game that will soon be a Big Ten rivalry next season, the Buckeyes stormed back from a three goal deficit in the 4th Quarter but Brandon Benn of Johns Hopkins rifled home the game winner in triple overtime. Pre-Season All-American Jesse King lived up to the hype, scoring five goals and an adding an assist to lead the Buckeyes in scoring.

The Buckeyes had their chances in the first and second overtimes to end the game but the Hopkins' defense and their goalie Eric Schneider stepped up when the game mattered the most. After a Hopkins' slashing penalty with a minute remaining in double overtime, the Buckeyes had a chance man-up but could not register the game winner. Ohio State then started with the ball in triple overtime but they turned the ball over, giving Hopkins' the ball back which led to the game winner by Benn.

Trailing 8-5 in the third quarter, the Buckeye offense, led by King and attackman Turner Evans, exploded for four goals in the 4th quarter to put the game into overtime. Attackman Gordie Koerber tied the game at 9-9 with 3:06 left in the 4th Quarter on an assist from Charlie Schnider.

As expected in the first game of the season, both offenses started off very slow as the game was tied 2-2 at halftime. Just like in other sports, defense tends to be ahead of the offense for the first game or two. Hopkins' dominated face-offs and the Buckeyes will need to improve in that area to be successful this season.

Ohio State looks to bounce back February 16th against Massachusetts in the Moe's Southwest Grill Classic in Jacksonville, Florida.
