Ohio State lacrosse: Buckeyes win again, defeat Delaware, 15-9

Led by Jesse King's eight points, Ohio State went on the road today to defeat the Delaware Blue Hens.

Led by pre-season All-American Jesse King's seven assists, the Buckeyes offense exploded to a tune of 15 goals today, beating the Delaware Blue Hens 15-9. The victory marked the second win in a row for the Buckeyes, making their record on the season 4-6.

There was no jet lag for the Buckeyes traveling to Delaware, as they pumped in six goals in the first stanza. Ryan Hunter scored twice, while J.T. Blubaugh, Rick Lewis Michael Italiano and David Planning all scored for Ohio State in the first quarter. Things were just getting started for the Buckeyes as they headed into the second quarter.

King assisted on five of the team's first seven goals and on Planning's second tally at the start of the second quarter which extended the lead to seven. After goals by Reegan Comeault, Kacy Kapinos and King, the Buckeyes lead the Blue Hens by a score of 10-2 at the half.

New half, same story for the Buckeyes as Blubaugh scored his second goal of the day to start off the third quarter, followed by Carter Brown's 14th goal of the season, extending the score to 12-2. After two Blue Hen goals, Brown and Chris Mahoney scored for the Buckeyes before Delaware added another. Ohio State led Delaware 14-5 heading into the fourth quarter.

With things all but wrapped up, Delaware made the game look a bit more respectable on their end by scoring four times in the final quarter before Comeault scored with the net open to give the Buckeyes a 15-9 victory.

The Buckeyes will be facing Michigan in the "Showdown in the Shoe" next Saturday morning at 11 a.m. before the Ohio State football spring game. If you are heading to the spring game then get there early for some good lacrosse!
