Johns Hopkins, ranked ninth in Division III, defeated Gettysburg, 37-14, on Friday night at Homewood Field, giving Jim Margraff his 174th career victory, tying him with former Morgan State coach Eddie Hurt as the winningest college football coach in Maryland history.

The Blue Jays (7-0, 6-0 Centennial Conference) jumped out to a 34-0 halftime lead, and senior quarterback Braden Anderson threw for 306 yards and four touchdowns in just over one half of action.

Anderson led Hopkins to touchdowns on its first three possessions and capped off the first two with touchdown passes of 35 yards to Stuart Walters and 50 yards to Bradley Munday, respectively.

Walters' touchdown reception came after the Blue Jays defense stopped Gettysburg (3-4, 3-3) on a fourth-and-1 on its opening possession, while Munday's came on the first play of Hopkins' second drive.

The Blue Jays defense allowed just 21 yards in the first quarter, and another three-and-out from Gettysburg after Munday's touchdown set up Hopkins' third score.

Anderson, who finished with 306 passing yards, directed the eight-play, 51-yard drive to near perfection, going 5-for-6 for 38 yards before Walters darted the final 15 yards to the end zone to make it 21-0 just 11:29 into the game.
