COLUMBUS, Ohio - Logan Schuss, a junior attackman on the No. 11/12 Ohio State men's lacrosse team, was named the ECAC Lacrosse League Offensive Player of the Week Monday. He led Ohio State (3-0, 1-0 ECAC) with five goals in the team's win over then-No. 5 ranked Denver Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla.
Four of his five goals vs. the Pioneers tied the score or put Ohio State in the lead, including the go-ahead tally in the fourth quarter in the eventual 10-9 win.
He opened the scoring early in the first quarter, tied the game with the first goal of the second quarter and completed the hat trick at 7:26 of the third with a man-up goal, drawing Ohio State within one (5-4). His fourth goal deadlocked the score at 6 at 3:44 of the third quarter and his final goal came at 13:35 of the fourth, putting Ohio State in the lead for the first time (9-8) since the first quarter. It was his second career five-goal game and first since last season at Virginia.
The five goals extended Schuss' point streak to 33, with at least one point in each game of his collegiate career. He leads the Buckeyes with 15 points and 10 goals this season. Schuss now has 123 points to rank 20th in Ohio State history.
This Saturday, the Ohio State lacrosse programs will play a doubleheader in Columbus. The 14th-ranked women's team, who is off to a 4-0 start to the season, will take on Brown at 11 a.m., followed by a men's game between the Buckeyes and No. 8/10 UMass at 1 p.m. The games are scheduled for Ohio Stadium but could be moved inside Woody Hayes Athletic Center in the event of unplayable weather and/or field conditions. Fans are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets to the men's game to ensure a spot should the game be moved inside.
