Schuss Nets 7 as No. 19 Ohio State Opens with Win over Detroit

Two goals from the Buckeyes had Detroit behind by one, but UDM took advantage of a holding call and with the man-up, Callaghan collected his second assist as he found Maini for the goal and the game was tied at 6-all heading into the locker room.

Ohio State regrouped at the half and scored the first two goals of the third, but off a caused turnover by senior defenseman Jamie Hebden (Farmington Hills, Mich./Brother Rice), Detroit was able to push the ball down the field and Beauregard struck for his lone marker and the Titans trailed by just one, 8-7, at the 7:04 mark of the third.

That is when OSU broke the game open with five-straight goals and the Buckeyes took a 13-7 lead with 12:10 in the game. UDM's last goal was scored by Maini as the Titans won a faceoff and senior LSM Jordan Houtby (St. Catharines, Ont./Holy Cross) corralled the ground ball and whipped a pass to Maini, who beat the keeper with just under 12 minutes remaining.

Senior A.J. Levell (Columbus, Ohio/Dublin Scioto) made 17 saves, two away from his career high, and picked up a team-high five ground balls. Levell saw 47 Ohio State shots as they outshot the Titans, 47-20. Detroit was 16 of 20 in clears and was 2 of 4 with the extra-man attack.

Schuss ended with 10 points in the game for OSU, while Carter Brown had six with two goals and Jesse King netted five.

The Titans will now get ready to face Navy on Friday, Feb. 15, as Detroit visits Annapolis and the Midshipmen. Game time is set for 7:00 p.m.
