All it took was the No. 5 Blue Jays’ 13-12 win at No. 9 Rutgers on Sunday night for Williams to double his season total in assists. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound Loyola Blakefield graduate had a game-high six points on two goals and four assists, including one goal and three assists in a second half in which the team overcame three-goal deficits on three occasions. The four assists were a career best for Williams, who had not recorded more than one assist in a game and had entered the weekend with four total assists this spring. Williams leads Johns Hopkins in goals with 21 and is tied with senior midfielder Joel Tinney and junior attackman Kyle Marr for second on the offense in points with 29 each.

The top five of Monday morning’s latest Maverik men’s lacrosse media poll now includes Albany, Maryland, Yale, Denver and – making its 2018 debut – Johns Hopkins.
