    ATHENS, Ohio – Ohio had eleven different players score goals Sunday as the Bobcats routed Howard, 20-2, in non-conference lacrosse action at Pruitt Field. Caitlin Link tallied four goals and Kari Fasick added three as Ohio recorded its highest offensive output of the season.

    “This win was good for our confidence,” head coach Kate Brew admitted. “Everyone was able to see some action and it was nice to have 11 players contribute to the scoring total. Defensively, I thought Lizzie (Wilson) was outstanding, and Jen Heup made nine saves. We are looking forward to building off this as we face a key road trip to UMBC and Penn State next weekend.”

    Ohio (4-8) opened the scoring just 51 seconds into the contest when Kelley Windle found the net unassisted for a 1-0 lead. Howard tied the game less than two minutes later when Dominque Browner tallied a goal at the 2:18 mark. But Link converted a free position shot 29 seconds after that to start a string of 19 unanswered goals and the rout was on.

    Windle added her second goal of the game at the 5:30 mark and Dana Dobbie scored back-to-back in a 68-second span – with 21:17 and 20:09 left in the period – to make the score 5-1. Link and Kristen Gombeski scored 46 seconds apart in the next minute to push the lead to 7-1. The advantage climbed to 13-1 at intermission.

    Ohio milked the clock in the second half, not scoring its first goal until 16 minutes left in the contest. Link scored unassisted then and added another in similar fashion at the 12:45 mark. Pairs of goals by Fasick and Tiffany Smith – her first of the season – helped Ohio eclipse the 16-goal standard it established against St. Mary’s on March 25.

    Howard (3-9) closed out the scoring when Browner tallied a free position goal with just 1:43 remaining.

    Ohio next hits the road Friday and Sunday when it travel to UMBC and Penn State.
