Junior attackman Kyle Barrie scored four goals and senior attackman Conor Ford (St. Paul's) added three as No. 1 Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team held off Penn, 10-9 at Homewood Field Saturday afternoon. The win is the 20th straight at home for the Blue Jays (0-1), while the Quakers fell for the second consecutive season at Homewood Field.
Hopkins sophomore goalie Scott Smith stuffed aside a shot in the final five seconds to seal the victory for the Blue Jays (1-0).
The Blue Jays carried a 7-4 lead into halftime, only to have the Quakers outscore them, 4-1 in the third quarter to tie the game at 8-8.
Junior Matt Rewkowski, playing in his first game at Johns Hopkins, gave the Blue Jays the lead for good at 9-8 with an extra-man goal at the 9:03 mark and he appeared to give the Blue Jays the insurance goal they would need when he assisted on Ford's goal with 2:35 remaining to push the lead to 10-8.
Will Phillips (Annapolis) scored four goals for Penn (0-1), including the Quakers' final goal of the game with 1:53 remaining.
