    BLACKSBURG, Va. Lynz Keys (Whitby, Ontario) scored six goals to lead the Ohio lacrosse team but the Bobcats fell behind early and could never catch up in a 14-12 loss at Virginia Tech Sunday.

    Melissa Menna (Downington, Pa.) and Dana Dobbie (Guelph, Ontario) each scored twice while Caitlin Link (Finksburg, Md.) and Katie Peksa (Salisbury, Md.) added single tallies for Ohio.

    The Hokies took a 2-0 lead in the first six minutes of the game but Ohio tied it with goals by Peksa and Dobbie at 7:59 and 12:47, respectively.

    Tech scored three straight goals to lead 5-2 with 5:21 left in the half but the Bobcats tried to rally. Keys and Link scored goals 70 seconds apart and Ohio trailed 5-4 with exactly three minutes to play. However, the Hokies ran off three straight over the final 1:39 to pull away 8-4 at the break. The back-breakers were goals with 32 and eight seconds remaining before halftime.

    The teams alternated goals over the first 18 minutes of the second half to make the score 12-8. Menna and Dobbie tallied the first two before Keys struck for back-to-back goals. Her run stretched to four as she scored at the 50:10 and 52:24 marks to make the score 12-10.

    After a Hokie score, Keys got her fifth straight, and sixth of the contest, with 5:23 left and then Menna followed with 3:13 left as the Bobcats rallied to 13-12. However, Virginia Tech added some insurance and Ohio could not score again to make the final margin two.

    Jennifer Cassidy tallied 10 saves in goal for the Bobcats, who fell to 5-5 with the loss. Ohio continues its road swing and returns to American Lacrosse Conference action Friday at Vanderbilt.
