Johns Hopkins routs Dickinson, 42-7; Margraff nears state record

Johns Hopkins, ranked ninth in Division III, scored the first 42 points and gained 454 total yards as the Blue Jays beat host Dickinson, 42-7, on Friday night.

Johns Hopkins (6-0, 5-0 Centennial Conference), which defeated Dickinson (2-4, 2-3) for the eighth straight time, improves to 39-1 in its past 40 regular-season games and gives coach Jim Margraff his 173rd career victory. Margraff is one win shy of tying Eddie Hurt's record for most wins by a college football coach in Maryland. Hurt won 174 games from 1929 to 1959.

Sophomore running back Stuart Walters covered the first 29 yards on two carries, and junior running back Brandon Cherry went 23 on the next play to set up the Blue Jays in the red zone.
