For the third time in its past four games, Johns Hopkins won on penalty strokes, as the host Blue Jays tallied twice in the best-of-five shootout to eliminate Salisbury State, 1-0, from the NCAA Division III tournament yesterday.
The Blue Jays (17-2), winning an NCAA tournament game for the first time, advance to the quarterfinals, where they will face the winner of the last night's College of New Jersey-Hartwick game.
During the penalty strokes, Johns Hopkins goalie Katie Reytar (Hammond) stopped three straight Salisbury attempts after the Sea Gulls' first shot went wide. Reytar had eight saves in the game.
Sophomore Camille Fesche (Dulaney) scored the first penalty stroke and junior Amy Bruschi converted the Blue Jays' fourth attempt for a 2-0 advantage.
Salisbury State (15-4) outshot Johns Hopkins, 13-1.
