* FACEOFFS: The team gave Tony Seaman the game ball after Saturday's 22-5 victory over Washington College, his first as Johns Hopkins' coach . . . Adam Wright had five goals, Jeff Wills three, and Matt Panetta contributed six assists . . . Seaman said fTC the film of the opening loss to Princeton showed the Blue Jays "panicked" when they dropped behind and the team learned from it: "If we run our offense properly, we're good; if each guy tries to do it himself, we're not as successful. We made the Princeton goalie look like an All-American; this time we were shooting from 10 yards out instead of 14 and it made a difference."
