Ohio State spoils debut of Johns Hopkins coach Peter Milliman | STATE LACROSSE ROUNDUP

Visiting Ohio State jumped to a seven-goal lead midway through the second quarter and held off a second-half Johns Hopkins rally to secure a 14-8 Big Ten men’s lacrosse victory over the Blue Jays at Homewood Field on Saturday afternoon.

The loss spoiled the Johns Hopkins coaching debut of Peter Milliman, whose team rallied to within four several times before a pair of late Buckeye goals accounted for the final scoring.

Ohio State used a 5-0 run that turned an early 1-1 tie into a 6-1 lead early in the second quarter. A Tre Leclair unassisted goal with 8:20 left in the first quarter ignited the spree for the Buckeyes, who got goals from five different players during the run. A Grant Mitchell goal, his second of the game, with 13:21 on the second-quarter clock capped the surge.

Johns Hopkins’ Connor DeSimone had a hat trick to lead the Jays and Leclaire scored four times to pace the Buckeyes.
