College Crosse News

The Buckeyes were not messing around last night as they thumped Detroit Mercy 23-9. You can find the box score for last night’s game here. The OSU recap of the game can be found here.


Senior Tre Leclaire (6G, 2A), junior Jackson Reid (4G, 3A) and sophomore Jack Myers (4G, 5A) led a balanced offensive attack that saw nine different players score goals. Sophomore Griffin Hughes chipped in with the first hat trick of his career and freshman Grant Mitchell added five points in his collegiate debut.

The Buckeyes broke the game open in the second quarter, netting 11 goals to build a 15-3 halftime lead. The 23 goals are the most ever by an Ohio State team in its season opener.

From Meet Pat March, the man tasked with sparking the Syracuse offense in 2020.

March is the new offensive coordinator for SU, replacing long-time assistant and program institution Kevin Donahue. March comes to the Orange after working in a similar post at Princeton, where he helped engineer offenses that ranked in the top-10 nationally in scoring each of the last-three seasons.
