Johns Hopkins 14, Maryland 9
Del Dressel, Brian Wood and Brendan Kelly each scored three goals to help No. 2-ranked Johns Hopkins beat No. 3-ranked Maryland, 14-9, before a homecoming crowd of approximately 11,000 that ringed Homewood Field for a college lacrosse game today.
Against Maryland, Hopkins (7-1) is 10-0 in regular-season games and 5-0 in postseason games since 1976.
"You know coming here on homecoming, you have to play solid for 60 minutes," said Maryland Coach Dick Edell. "I don't think we played well for 60 minutes."
For the first 15 minutes the Terrapins (7-2) played superbly. They led, 3-2, and 4-3, largely because specialist Todd Ensor won six of eight faceoffs.
But during the last three periods, the Blue Jays controlled 11 of 19 faceoffs as Ensor was neutralized. They also outscored Maryland, 11-5, in that time.
"If you don't get the ball, you don't get the shots," Edell said.
Johns Hopkins scored first after 1:13 when Kelly bounced a shot from 25 feet past Jim Beardmore (10 saves).
Maryland controlled the ensuing faceoff and, 12 seconds later, a goal by Chris Bullen tied it.
Brian Willard gave Maryland its first lead, 3-2, with 11:17 left when he spun off his defender and bounced a shot from 15 feet.
Maryland led again, 4-3, when Tom Worstell, the only Terrapin with more than one goal, scored for the second time with 6:51 to play in the opening period.
"In the first quarter, we settled the ball down," said attackman Brendan Hanley, Maryland's leading scorer who was held without a goal or assist. "We ran an offense called 'Hopkins.' It's kind of an isolation. It worked twice for Worstell. After that we didn't settle the ball down."
Dressel coverted a pass from Wood with 1:28 to give Johns Hopkins a 6-4 lead. "Rather than go one on one," Dressel said, "We moved the ball around and tried to get everyone to touch. A lot of my goals happened that way."
