Ohio State Picks Up Win Over Marquette

Ohio State looked great with ball movement on offense and their defense was solid against a young Marquette team as the Buckeyes picked up a 18-8 win over the Golden Eagles on Sunday.

Marquette showed signs of inexperience but had raw play with potential. Both sides of the ball need work but can improve with experience.

Ohio State went up 3-0 early with eight minutes left in the first. Marquette got their chances but were stopped by Ohio State goalie Scott Spencer. They made it 3-2 late in the first but Ohio State would score again twice to make it 5-2.

Ohio State could have scored more if not for holding onto too many potential shots. However, they soon made it 7-3 and after a Marquette goal, 7-4. Logan Schuss scored a quick power play goal to make it 8-4 after a roughing call. It was 10-5 at the half.

Carter Brown scored to start the second half for the Buckeyes. Ohio Machine player Stefan Schroder was with me and said this about Ohio State-

“OSU is a young team and how far they go will be determined by how far thiet defense can come… How much they can gel”

Ohio State led 14-6 at the end of three, but picked up the 18-8 win. They were led by a four goal performance from Carter Brown and three from Jesse King.
