COLUMBUS, Ohio When it needed them the most, Ohio State’s captains rose to the occasion on Saturday.

Fifth-year senior Jackson Reid and senior Jack Myers combined for 11 points as Ohio State outscored Johns Hopkins 4-1 in the fourth quarter to earn a hard-fought 12-10 victory on Saturday in front of 1,970 at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes, winners of two straight, are 8-3 on the season and 2-1 in the Big Ten while Johns Hopkins falls to 5-7 overall and 1-2 in the Big Ten.

The Short Story
Reid, Scott White and Connor Mitchell scored fourth-quarter goals as Ohio State turned a 9-8 deficit into an 11-9 lead with 10:36 remaining. Johnny Wiseman then put the capper on the afternoon, scoring with 7:09 to play and giving the Buckeyes a two-goal lead, an advantage they wouldn’t relinquish.

Reid matched his career high five goals while adding an assist. Myers, meanwhile, had four assists and also scored a goal. Mitchell and Wiseman also scored twice.

Skylar Wahlund made eight saves, including three in the fourth quarter, and Justin Inacio won 14 of the 25 faceoffs he took with seven ground balls.

“It was great to see so many of our alumni today and have a chance to honor them before the game,” said head coach Nick Myers. “We beat a good team today. It’s never easy putting Big Ten wins together. Got some timely goals and did a good job on defense and in goal to make winning plays. We will enjoy this one and get right back to work.”
