No. 13 Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse rolls to 14-6 rout of No. 14 Towson in season opener

Kyle Marr finished with six points on four goals and two assists, and the No. 13 Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team cruised to a 14-6 thumping of No. 14 Towson before an announced 855 that braved storms that drenched Homewood Field in Baltimore on Saturday night.

Marr, a junior attackman, contributed all of his points in a first half in which the Blue Jays raced to an 11-2 advantage. Senior midfielder Joel Tinney tallied two goals and two assists, and junior midfielder Alex Concannon added two goals and one assist.

Ryan Moran, UMBC's second-year coach, got a glimpse into the future as he unveiled his first recruiting class in UMBC’s 9-6 season-opening win over visiting Richmond.

Senior goalkeeper Brock Turnbaugh, a Phoenix resident and Hereford graduate, made 13 saves and the defense stifled the Tigers to help Johns Hopkins win its 11th consecutive season opener.

Junior midfielder Jon Mazza had one goal and one assist to pace Towson, which dropped its first game of the season for the first time since 2013. The 14 goals allowed were the most by the Tigers since March 12, 2016, when that team gave up 14 goals to the Blue Jays.
