    EVANSTON, Ill. Sixth-ranked Northwestern scored the first seven goals of the game and built a 17-2 lead at halftime in a 25-7 victory over the Ohio lacrosse team Friday afternoon. Lynz Keys (Whitby, Ontario) and Courtney Santelli (Pittsburgh, Pa.) scored two goals apiece to lead the Bobcats.

    The 25 goals were the most ever scored against Ohio, who falls to 7-7 overall and 2-3 in league play. The Wildcats improved to 13-1 and 5-0 to clinch a share of the American Lacrosse Conferene title with their 12th straight win, the second-longest streak in the country.

    Lindsay Finocchiaro set the tone early with an unassisted goal just 22 seconds in. Lindsey Munday followed with an unassisted goal of her own at 1:09 and then Angela McMahon finished an Aly Josephs feed at the 1:43 mark.

    The Bobcats stopped the run at seven when Becky Oxman (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) scored an unassisted goal at 9:24 but Northwestern came back with nine straight goals. Perhaps the most staggering statistic of the first half was that the Wildcats scored their 17 goals on just 19 shots one shot was saved by Ohio goalkeeper Jayme Levy (Reisterstown, Md.) and the other shot went just over the crossbar.

    Ohio scored the first goal of the second half when Caitlin Link (Finksburg, Md.) finished a Melissa Menna (Downington, Pa.) feed but Northwestern scored the next five goals as both teams began to substitute.

    Keys scored two goals in a row and then Santelli followed up with two of her own to cut the margin to 21-7. However, Northwestern tallied the last four goals of the game for the final margin.

    Ohio returns to action Saturday when it faces Denver in a non-conference game at Northwestern. The regular season finale is Wednesday at home against Ohio State.
