Ohio State's men's lacrosse team defeated Air Force 8-6, clinching at least a share of the ECAC regular season title for the first time in program history.

It was a low scoring game throughout, and tight too. The Buckeyes (6-6, 3-0) were ahead most of the day, but the Falcons kept coming back, tying the score five times. Ryan Hunter's fourth goal of the day put Ohio State up 7-6, and an empty net goal by Carter Brown with under a minute remaining sealed the deal.

Goalie Scott Spencer had a career-high 14 saves in the win. Ohio State can win the outright conference title by beating Fairfield next Saturday.

For the Buckeyes, the win over Air Force marks a strong recovery from a disappointing non-conference slate. Win or lose next week, the Buckeyes will host Fairfield, Air Force and Michigan on May 1 and 3 in the ECAC Championship for an automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.

Love me some LA-X I remember a few years ago our goalie scored a goal in the opening round of the NCAA tourney.

Well done young bucks!

The way we completely dismantled and shut down *ichigan before the spring game I would have thunk we were better then a 6-6 record.

Glad that we are taking care of business, but this has been a disappointing season.  The ECAC is a bottom their conference and this is not the way to follow up a groundbreaking season that saw the Bucks take a top 4 seed in the NCAA tournament.  I promise you this, the B1G will be a big step up in difficulty next year and I'd rather not fight with Rutgers and TTUN for the scraps at the bottom.

Cause I couldn't go for three
