Cornell knocked Ohio State out of the NCAA lacrosse tournament 16-6

Corenell jumped out to a 6-1 lead after the first quarter, then bumped it to 11-3 at the half before going on to throttle the Ohio State men's lacrosse team 16-6 in NCAA tournament quarterfinals action, ending the Bucks' season.

Ohio State had only allowed 11 goals once all season, and that came in 60 minutes, not 30.

The Big Red's Steve Mock led all scorers with seven goals as Cornell routinely sliced through Ohio State's zone defense. Teammate Rob Parnell finished with two goals and six assists, leaving him just five points away from tying the NCAA's all-time scoring record.

Jesse King led Ohio State with two goals.

The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the No. 3 Buckeyes, who finished the season 13-4. The 13 wins marked the most for the program since the 1978 team won 14.
