    BALTIMORE, Md. -- Sophomore Dana Dobbie tallied three goals and two assists and freshman Frannie Sullivan scored a career-high three goals and added an assist as Ohio started its weekend road trip with an 11-6 non-conference victory at UMBC. The game was the first-ever on the new UMBC Turf.

    The Bobcats (5-8) never trailed in the contest, as they opened a 2-0 lead in the first 2:19. Sullivan started the surge by converting a free position shot 2:05 into the contest. Over the next 14 seconds, Dobbie won the ensuing faceoff, gained the draw control and scored her first goal.

    UMBC got on the board with 23:44 left in the first half, but Dobbie answered 55 seconds later after taking a pass from Sullivan. Kelley Windle put Ohio up 4-1 on an unassisted goal with 19:30 left.

    The lead reached 5-1 when Caitlin Link scored on a Kristen Gombeski assist with 3:35 to play, and 6-2 by intermission when Sullivan answered a Terrier goal with one of her own just 56 seconds before halftime.

    UMBC opened the second half with the three straigt goals by Kelly Fiorani to close to within 6-5, but Ohio tallied back-to-back strikes to regain a three-goal advantage. Julie Roguski scored on a Dobbie pass with 19:36 remaining, then Sullivan tallied an unassisted goal with 14:34 left.

    The Terriers tallied an unassisted goal at 10:04 before the Bobcats added three goals as insurance. Kari Fasick scored unassisted with 8:48 to play, then Gombeski tallied her second on a Dobbie pass at 3:48. Dobbie rounded out the scoring with 1:23 to play.

    Jen Heup made eight saves in the win for Ohio.

    The Bobcats' road swing continues Sunday when they return to American Lacrosse Conference action with a noon game at Penn State.
