Team of the Week

Ohio State 3-17 After upsetting Denver, Ohio State has trips to No. 18 Towson and No. 3 Notre Dame this week.

Senior Day for the Buckeyes was one to rejoice as Ohio State toppled then-No. 3 Denver with a fourth-quarter rally to jump from unranked to No. 15 in this week’s Inside Lacrosse poll.

Ohio State scored the game’s last four goals to beat Denver 13-11. In a game that featured eight ties and eight lead changes, the Buckeyes took control with a trio of goals in the final period’s first five minutes.

Sophomore Tyler Pfister totaled three goals and four points and Jesse King added four points, including the game-winning goal. Ohio State redshirt sophomore goalie Tom Carey made 11 saves.

King, the Buckeyes' leading scorer at 21 goals and 33 points, extended his point streak to 44 games with a fourth consecutive four-point performance.

Ohio State added a 7-6 win at No. 18 Towson to improve to 7-2 this season. The Buckeyes stay on the road Saturday at No. 3 Notre Dame.

Honorable Mentions

No. 7 Cornell (4-2)

Cornell dropped the hammer on Ivy League foe Yale, doubling up the then-No. 6 Bulldogs with a 14-7 win in New Haven, Connecticut. Matt Donovan and Dan Lintner scored four goals each while the Big Red defense keyed the rout by holding Yale scoreless for a 24-minute stretch.

No. 5 Maryland (5-1)

The Terrapins continue to plug away behind the nation’s top defense after an early-season loss. Senior Charlie Raffa won 13 of 16 faceoffs and Matt Rambo totaled four points to lead an 11-2 road win against then-No. 15 Villanova.
