Rutgers notches first Big Ten win in season finale against No. 11 Ohio State
PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Prior to celebrating a nine-member senior class, Rutgers provided one last highlight, downing No. 11 Ohio State 17-10 on Saturday. The victory was Rutgers' first Big Ten Conference win.
Senior Brian Goss and freshman Jules Heningburg each had three goals on the day, while senior Joe Nardella, junior Scott Bieda and sophomore Jeff George each had two scores.
Jake Andersen made 10 saves in the cage to earn the victory. Nardella was 19 of 28 on faceoffs and collected nine ground balls.
Rutgers used a 7-0 second quarter to race out to an 11-4 halftime lead in the victory.
"This is a proud moment for the program, having the nine seniors leave the program with something they could put their stamp on with a top-ten win," Rutgers head coach Brian Brecht said. "I'm proud of those nine guys who put on that jersey and have been a big part of our success."
