The American Lacrosse Conference opener for No. 14 Johns Hopkins and host Ohio State was an offensive show, with a combined 34 goals. Seven players scored for the Buckeyes in their 22-12 win over the Blue Jays yesterday afternoon.

Hopkins dropped to 2-3 overall and 0-1 in the conference, while Ohio State improved to 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the conference. Freshman Candace Rossi paced the Blue Jays with five goals.

Trailing 10-4 after a goal by Alayna Markwordt just 12 seconds into the second half, Hopkins got three unanswered goals in a span of 2:52 to cut the deficit in half at 10-7. Rossi got things going when she took a feed from junior Brett Bathras and scored her second goal of the game. Junior Sam Schrum followed with her third of the season just more than a minute later to cut it to 10-6. Rossi then notched her second straight hat trick, scoring with 25:06 to play on a free-position shot.

Ohio State responded with six straight goals in just 4:11 to push its lead to 16-7. Five Buckeyes scored during the run, led by a pair from Markwordt. Rossi temporarily halted the run with her fourth goal of the game with 19:36 to play, making it 16-8. Maghan Beaudrault then connected with Kelly Haggerty, and Ohio State's lead was back to nine with 17:37 remaining.

Hopkins put together another 3-0 run with goals from freshman Cami Kramer, Bathras and Rossi. But it was answered by a 5-2, game-ending run by the Buckeyes.
