Men's lacrosse: Closing run lifts No. 14 Ohio State past No. 19 Johns Hopkins

Ryan Brown's eight goals not enough as Buckeyes earn 15-12 win

Carter Brown scored six goals and Jesse King added five goals and two assists as the No. 14 Ohio State men's lacrosse team pulled away for a 15-12 win against No. 19 Johns Hopkins in a Big Ten contest in Columbus, Ohio.

The Blue Jays (4-6) came up short despite a near-record performance from attackman Ryan Brown, who matched his career high with eight goals and added one assist in the loss. The eight goals are one shy of the Johns Hopkins single-game record. William Logan scored nine times for Hopkins against Virginia in 1927.

In a back-and-forth game that featured nine ties, the Buckeyes (9-3) outscored JHU 4-1 over the final seven minutes to secure the victory. Hopkins had tied the score at 11 with 7:54 to play when Ryan Brown scored off a feed from junior Holden Cattoni.

The win was the first for Ohio State in six meetings against Johns Hopkins, which will return to action on Saturday against Penn State at Homewood Field at 6 pm.
