OBrien scored the Buckeyes’ first goal of the game off a free position shot.
However, it wasn’t enough to spark the Buckeye momentum as the Seawolves continued to score another three consecutive goals bringing the score to 11-1.
Johnson scored two goals for the Buckeyes at the end of the first half.
Ohio State attempted to mount a comeback as OBrien scored the first goal of the second half, assisted by senior midfielder Meghan Matey. But there was too much margin for the Buckeyes to close.
