Hopkins wins defensive showdown at Navy

Posted on 18 April 2014 by WNST Staff

ANNAPOLIS, MD – The sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team capped a tough stretch of three games in seven days with a gutty 6-5 win at Navy before a crowd of 8,655 at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium Friday night. The Blue Jays previously topped Maryland (11-6) and Mount St. Mary’s (17-2) to open the three-game run and the Midshipmen gave them all they could handle before Hopkins forced a late turnover and ran out the clock to run its winning streak to four games.

In a game that saw both teams score just twice in the second half, it was Navy that had momentum and possession late, but a pair of big plays – a save by senior Eric Schneider on a left-handed runner by Gabe Voumard and a deflected pass by junior co-captain Michael Pellegrino that eventually gave the Blue Jays possession in the final 15 seconds – proved to be the difference.

Schneider bailed the Blue Jays out with his 17th save on Voumard’s shot with 1:01 remaining as he swept across the field and got his hands free from 12 yards out. Still, the Blue Jays weren’t out of danger as they failed to clear the ball cleanly and Navy regained possession and called timeout with 34 seconds remaining.

The Midshipmen worked the ball around to Schneider’s left, but an Austin Heneveld pass to the middle was deflected by Pellegrino and junior John Kelly came up with the ground ball near midfield before Navy was called for a hold with 12 seconds remaining that effectively sealed the win for the Blue Jays.

Johns Hopkins never trailed in the game, but the Blue Jays could never quite put the Midshipmen away and needed the late-game heroics of Schneider, Pellegrino and the defense to seal the victory.

It took less than a minute for Hopkins to open the scoring as Brandon Benn finished from in tight on a nifty feed to the crease from Wells Stanwick. Voumard answered just under three minutes later as he had time and room from 12 yards and beat Schneider up high.

That score held until early in the second quarter, when Hopkins took a two-goal lead on the strength of back-to-back goals by Benn in a span of just 28 seconds. He scored from the wing at the back end of a transition chance that was jump-started by a Schneider save and sophomore Connor Reed then drew a slide off a dodge and found Benn alone five yards to the right of goalie John Connors, who gave up the inside post as Benn completed his 18th career hat trick.

T.J. Hanzsche and Tucker Hull wrapped goals around an extra-man tally by Ryan Brown for the Blue Jays to account for a 4-3 score at the half and Hopkins pushed that lead to three goals less than seven minutes into the third quarter as Holden Cattoni blew a low shot past Connors off a feed from Reed and Benn found the same spot midway through the period to make it 6-3.

The three-goal cushion was down to two when Sam Jones found the top corner from straight away in an extra-man situation with 5:22 remaining in the third and Hull added his second of the game nearly 15 minutes later to make it 6-5 with 5:27 left in regulation.

The Midshipmen fired four more shots at Schneider and the Blue Jay defense in the final four minutes, but two missed the mark and Schneider got the better of Hull and then Voumard to help seal Johns Hopkins’ ninth win of the season.

Schneider’s 17 saves are the second-highest total of his career and six of those 17 came in the final 15 minutes. He anchored a defense that held its third straight opponent to six goals or less.

Benn’s four goals push his career total to an even 100, which makes him the 17th player in school history to reach the century mark. Brown (1g, 1a) and Reed (2a) were the only other multi-point scorers for the Blue Jays.

Navy got 14 saves from Connors and the Midshipmen held decided advantages in shots (46-29) and ground balls (27-10), but Schneider and the Blue Jay defense got the stops they needed down the stretch to close out the win and polish off the rugged seven-day run.

Hopkins tries to extend win streak Friday at Navy

Posted on 17 April 2014 by WNST Staff

Television: CBS Sports Network

The Game: Johns Hopkins (8-3) plays its third game in seven days as the Blue Jays make the short trip to Annapolis to take on Navy (4-7). Game time is set for 7 pm at Navy-Marine Corps Stadium with a national television broadcast on CBS Sports Network.

A Look Back: Johns Hopkins picked up its third win in 11 days as the Blue Jays topped host Mount St. Mary’s, 17-2, on Monday. Navy fell to rival Army, 14-7, last Saturday. The loss is Navy’s second straight and fifth in its last six games.

Series History: Johns Hopkins and Navy are meeting for the 87th time in a series that dates to a 6-1 Blue Jay victory in 1908. The Blue Jays picked up a 15-4 victory at Homewood Field last season, but Navy has won two straight in Annapolis, including a decisive 8-2 victory in 2012. JHU leads the series 58-27-1.

These are the Facts: Johns Hopkins enters this week’s game against Navy with an all-time record of 941-306-15 (.752). The Blue Jays own nine NCAA titles, 29 USILA titles and six ILA titles for a total of 44 national championships.

Poll Position: Johns Hopkins is ranked sixth in this week’s USILA Coaches Poll and fifth in the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll. Navy is not ranked this week in either poll.

Closing on Mr. Scott: Dave Pietramala picked up his 155th victory as the head coach at Johns Hopkins with the 17-2 victory at Mount St. Mary’s and he continues to close in on the record for most career coaching victories at Homewood. Only Bob Scott, who won 158 games as the head coach at JHU from 1955-74, has won or coached (214) more games than Pietramala at Johns Hopkins.

Career Win Number 178: In addition to his 155-53 (.745) mark as the head coach at JHU, Dave Pietramala also postd a 23-17 record in three seasons as the head coach at Cornell and now boasts an overall record of 178-70 (.718). Pietramala’s 178 wins rank 10th among active Division I coaches.

New Blue: The Johns Hopkins lineup features six new starters after a large senior class departed Homewood last spring. The six are spread throughout the lineup and include Eric Schneider (G), Rob Enright (D), John Kelly (D), Holden Cattoni(M), Connor Reed (M) and Ryan Brown (A). Brown did start four games at midfield last season, but made the move to his natural attack position this season, and Enright had five career starts through his first two seasons.

New Blue II: In addition to the six new starters in the lineup, the overall Blue Jay roster is also vastly different than a year ago. Gone are 11 seniors who exhausted their eligibility and in their place are 17 freshmen.

Youth Will be Served: Johns Hopkins is fielding one of the youngest rosters in the nation this season as 17 of the team’s 49 players are freshmen and 29 are either freshmen or sophomores. Only nine of the 49 are seniors and two of those nine - Eric Schneider and Phil Castronova - have an extra year of eligibility and are planning to return for the 2015 season.

For Starters: Entering the 2014 season, the entire 49-man Johns Hopkins roster counted a total of 132 combined career starts to its credit. Of those 132, Rob Guida (38), Jack Reilly (30), Brandon Benn (29) and Wells Stanwick (17) accounted 114, or 86.7%. No other returning player had started more than five games for the Blue Jays. By contrast, last year’s 11-man senior class graduated with a combined 321 starts with six of those 11 players earning 45 or more starts during their careers.

An Offensive Group: Johns Hopkins enters this week’s game against Navy averaging 12.64 goals per game and the Blue Jays have scored at least 10 goals in all but one game this season. Entering the game against Navy, JHU ranks ninth in the nation in scoring offense, fifth in assists per game (8.1) and 10th in points per game (20.7).

Sharing the Ball: An effective part of the Blue Jay offense this season has been the ability to move the ball and that has shown up in the percentage of the team’s goals that have been assisted thus far. Through 11 games, 89 of JHU’s 139 goals have been assisted, or 64.0%. Only three times since 2003 has Johns Hopkins finished a season with more than 60% of its goals being assisted. The 2003 team assisted on 67.4% of its goals, while the 2004 (64.3%) and 2009 (62.4%) teams also eclipsed the 60% mark.

Extra, Extra: Johns Hopkins converted on three of its four extra-man opportunities against Mount St. Mary’s and is now 21-of-37 (.568) for the year. The Blue Jays rank fourth in the nation in extra-man offense heading into the Navy game.Brandon Benn (6 EMO goals), Holden Cattoni (6), Ryan Brown (4) and Wells Stanwick (3) have combined to score 19 of JHU’s 21 EMO goals this season.

Kennedy, Faceoff Unit Shine: Behind the efforts of junior Drew Kennedy, Johns Hopkins ranks 11th in the nation in faceoff winning percentage entering this week’s game at Navy. On the year, the Blue Jays have won 168-of-271 (.620) as a team on the year.
For his part, Kennedy has been a workhorse as he is 152-of-239 (.636) through 11 games and also has a team-high 109 ground balls thus far. He ranks among the national leaders in faceoff winning percentage (11th) and ground balls per game (3rd / 9.9) after winning 9-of-11 with nine ground balls at Mount St. Mary’s.

Holding Them Down: The Blue Jays have held the opposition scoreless for long stretches at key points this season. The 11 teams Johns Hopkins has played thus far have 14 scoreless droughts of 11 minutes or longer and 11 of 15 minutes or longer. JHU held Maryland scoreless for stretches of 20:11 to open the game and 18:52 immediately after the Terps scored their first goal and then held Mount St. Mary’s off the board for 44:56 to open the game.

More Holding: Johns Hopkins has held each of its 11 opponents under its season scoring average (current average) thus far. Recently, the Blue Jays held Albany to just eight goals (just over half of what the Great Danes entered the game averaging) and Maryland to just six goals (less than half the Terps’ average entering the game). In all, JHU has held nine of its 11 opponents to nine goals or less.

A Final Holding: The Johns Hopkins defense has not allowed a first-quarter goal in the last three games. The Blue Jays led Albany, 5-0, Maryland, 1-0, and Mount St. Mary’s, 2-0, at the end of the first quarter and haven’t allowed a first quarter goal since UNC scored with 51 seconds left in the first period of its game at JHU on March 29. The scoreless stretch for the opposition in the first quarter now stands at 45:51 and the Blue Jays have allowed just one goal in the last 55:25 of the first quarter.

Second Quarter Defense Nearly the Same: While the Blue Jays haven’t allowed a first quarter goal in the last three games, they’ve been nearly as effective in the second quarter over the same period of time. In wins against Albany, Maryland and Mount St. Mary’s the Blue Jays have allowed a total of just two goals in the second quarter. The Great Danes and Terps both managed a second-quarter goal against the Blue Jays after being held scorelessin the first. Mount St. Mary’s didn’t score until the final four seconds of the third quarter.

Attack Driven: Johns Hopkins’ starting attack unit of senior Brandon Benn, junior Wells Stanwick and sophomore Ryan Brown is being counted on to lead the way offensively for the Blue Jays this season and the trio has been up to the task thus far. They have combined for at least three goals and seven points in all 11 games this season, with 11 goals against UMBC and nine goals against both Towson and Princeton. The trio has a pair of 16-point games to its credit (Towosn, UMBC) and a 14-point effort as well (Princeton). The three started the first 10 games together before Brown sat out the game at Mount St. Mary’s.

Second-Longest Game in School History: The triple overtime game against Ohio State in the season-opener ranks as the second-longest game in the history of the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse program. The longest game in school history was a four-overtime game against Virginia on March 24, 2001.

In Overtime: With the 11-10 loss at Virginia, Johns Hopkins is now 20-11 all-time in overtime under head coach Dave Pietramala; this includes the 10-9 triple overtime victory against Ohio State in the season opener. The Blue Jays have won four of their last six overtime games dating back to late in the 2011 season.

State Rivalries: Johns Hopkins improved its record to 65-8 (.890) under head coach Dave Pietramala in games played against teams from the state of Maryland with the 17-2 victory at Mount St. Mary’s. Including this week’s game at Navy, the Blue Jays will play six games this season against in-state rivals.

Poll Position: The Blue Jays are ranked sixth in this week’s USILA Coaches Poll. The Johns Hopkins Athletic Communications Office uses the USILA Poll to represent JHU’s official ranking at the time of a game. Prior to falling out of the top 20 of the USILA Poll on April 26 and May 3, 2010 (JHU was receiving votes in both polls), the Blue Jays had been ranked in the top 20 in 367 consecutive polls dating back to the first poll in 1973.

Navy vs. Johns Hopkins – The Series
• Tonight’s contest marks the 88th meeting between Navy and Johns Hopkins … it’s the 65th-consecutive year the two programs have battled and it is the third-longest continuous series between Navy and another team on the lax field behind Army-Navy and Navy-Maryland.
• The Blue Jays own a commanding 59-27-1 advantage in the series, however Johns Hopkins’ amazing 36-game winning streak was snapped in 2010, when the Mids dealt the Blue Jays a 9-8 overtime loss.
• While Johns Hopkins owns a 31-19-1 lead in games played in Annapolis, the Mids have won each of the last two played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.  The first of the two was the 9-8 extra-frame victory by the Mids in which Andy Warner scored the game winner.  Meanwhile, in 2012, Navy dismantled the Blue Jays in an 8-2 route.
• Seven of the last 15 games between Navy and Johns Hopkins have been decided by one goal … additionally, four of the seven one-goal games have gone into extra minutes.
• Third-year Navy head coach Rick Sowell is 1-1 all-time against the Blue Jays.

Taking the Field In …
10    Navy has lost just five games (58-5) when scoring 10 or more goals since the start of the 2004 season … Navy is 12-0 under Sowell when scoring 10 or more goals (5-0 in 2012, 3-0 in 2013, 4-0 in 2014).

6    Junior midfielder Gabe Voumard has produced multiple goals in 6 games this season, including each of the last 3 games.
5    Senior long stick midfielder Pat Kiernan is just 8 ground balls shy of moving into the top 5 on the Mids’ career ground balls list.  He has 175 and is ranked eighth.
4    Kiernan is pacing the Mids with 19 caused turnovers this spring and is ranked 4th on Navy’s all-time single season list.  He needs just 1 caused turnover to become the program’s third different player to post 20 takeaways in a season and first to do it multiple times.

Scouting the Blue Jays
• In his 14th season at Johns Hopkins, head coach Dave Pietramala has his Blue Jays playing at the top of their game at the right time of the year.  The Blue Jays won their first five games of the year, before stumbling in consecutive games to nationally-ranked programs Syracuse (12-10), Virginia (11-10 OT) and North Carolina (13-9).  Hopkins snapped its losing streak against Albany and has since won three in a row, including an 11-6 win over No. 3 Maryland last weekend at Homewood Field.
• Johns Hopkins is ranked among the top 20 in 10 statistical categories, including extra-man offense where it is ranked fourth nationally.  The Blue Jays have scored 21 goals on 37 opportunities (56.8) and are coming off a 3-for-4 performance at Mount St. Mary’s Monday evening.
• The Blue Jays are also ranked among the nation’s best in assists per game (5th), points per game (10th), face-off winning percentage (11th), scoring margin (11th), scoring offense (12th), shot percentage (14th), winning percentage (15th), ground balls per game (17th) and scoring defense (17th).
• Johns Hopkins, however, is ranked 65th in caused turnovers per game (5.5) and clearing percentage (83.7).
• Two of the top point producers in the country are on Hopkins’ roster this season.  Ranked ninth in points per game (4.55) and fourth in assists per game (3.27) is junior attackman Wells Stanwick.  He has produced 50 points on 14 goals and a team-best 36 assists.  Meanwhile, sophomore attackman Ryan Brown stands 11th in points per game (4.30) and third nationally in goals per game (3.20).  Brown owns 43 points on a team-best 32 goals and 11 assists.
• Senior attackman Brandon Benn (27) and sophomore middie Holden Cattoni (20) have also topped 20 goals this season.
• Senior Eric Schneider directs the defense from between the pipes where he owns an 8.11 goals-against average and has stopped 54.6 percent of the shots he has faced this season.  The defense has surrendered double digits in three games this season, all three losses.
• Following Hopkins tradition, Pietramala once again has one of the premiere faceoff men in the country.  Junior Drew Kennedy owns a 63.6 winning percentage and is coming off a 9-for-11 effort against Mount St. Mary’s.  entering the week, he was ranked 11th nationally with a 62.7 winning percentage.  Kennedy has also picked up a team-best 109 ground balls and stands third in the country, grabbing better than 10 a game.

Loyola remains #1, Maryland falls in weekly lacrosse rankings

Posted on 14 April 2014 by WNST Staff

The greatest rivalry in the history of college lacrosse lead to a major shift in the sport’s weekly polls Monday.

Johns Hopkins raced past previous #3 ranked Maryland Saturday, posting an 11-6 victory over the Terps at Homewood Field. Hopkins moved up in the rankings thanks to the win while the Terrapins slid in both polls. Loyola remained #1 in both polls after crushing Boston University 15-6 Saturday for their 11th straight win and the Patriot League regular season title. Towson fell out of the polls after dropping an 8-1 decision to Penn State Saturday night.

Hopkins routs Mt. St. Mary’s to improve to 8-3 on season

Posted on 14 April 2014 by WNST Staff

EMMITSBURG, MD – The sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team had 11 different players score goals and 13 players had at least one point as the Blue Jays topped host Mount St. Mary’s, 17-2, at Waldron Family Stadium Monday afternoon. Johns Hopkins moves to 8-3 on the year with its third straight win, while the Mountaineers slip to 0-14.

Playing less than 48 hours after an emotional 11-6 win over rival Maryland, the Blue Jays led just 2-0 at the end of the first quarter as the Mount stayed in a tightly packed zone defense. Back-to-back goals in the first three minutes of the second quarter doubled the lead as junior Wells Stanwick found seniors Brandon Benn and Kevin Interlicchio alone on the crease in a 48-second span to push the lead to 4-0.

Johns Hopkins controlled a majority of the possession in the first half by winning 8-of-10 faceoffs and slowly began to find seams in the Mount zone. Benn added his second of the first half on a quick-stick from the doorstep less than four minutes after Interlicchio’s goal and freshman John Crawley had a hand in two straight late in the period, scoring an unassisted goal on a wing dodge and then getting the helper on Benn’s third with 1:02 left. A transition goal by freshmanNick Fields off the ensuing faceoff accounted for an 8-0 Blue Jay lead at the half.

The lead swelled to 12-0 by late in the third quarter as freshman Cody Radziewicz, junior Brady Faby, Interlicchio andHolden Cattoni all scored in a span of less than eight minutes to build the 12-goal lead.

The Mountaineers finally broke through in the final seconds of the third quarter as Bubba Johnson beat Blue Jay goalie Eric Schneider with a low shot off an assist from Kyle McDonough and the Mount made it two straight at the 10:29 mark of the fourth quarter when Clayton Wainer scored from the wing.

Both teams substituted liberally in the fourth quarter with Johns Hopkins freshman attackman Jack Grass doing most of the damage with three goals and one assist in the final nine minutes of the game. Sophomore Liam Giblin and senior Greg Edmonds also scored in the final quarter for the Blue Jays, who played a total of 45 players in the game.

Johns Hopkins held decided advantages in shots (57-14), ground balls (47-19) and faceoffs (18-5) and matched a season high with 12 caused turnovers. Mount St. Mary’s goalie Chris Klaiber played well in goal for the Mount as his 19 saves were just one shy of his career high.

Stanwick paced the Blue Jays with a career-high-tying six assists, while Benn and Grass both added hat tricks. Four Blue Jay goalies combined for six saves with Schneider playing 45 minutes and stopping three shots.

Johns Hopkins will return to action on Friday, April 18 when the Blue Jays hit the road again at Navy. Faceoff is set for 7 pm.

Notes: Johns Hopkins has not allowed a first-quarter goal in the last three games • Stanwick’s six assists give him 36 on the year, the ninth-highest single-season total in school history and the most by a Johns Hopkins player since Dan Denihan had 40 in 2000 • JHU is now 65-8 under head coach Dave Pietramala against teams from the state of Maryland.

Hopkins makes quick turnaround to visit Mt. St. Mary’s Monday

Posted on 14 April 2014 by WNST Staff

The Game: Johns Hopkins makes a quick turnaround from its game against Maryland on Saturday as the Blue Jays make the short trip to Emmitsburg, Maryland to take on Mount St. Mary’s. Faceoff from Waldron Family Stadium is set for 4 pm. The Johns Hopkins-Mount St. Mary’s game was originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 4, but snow forced the game to be postponed.

A Look Back: Johns Hopkins picked up its second straight win with an 11-6 win over rival Maryland before a crowd of 9.553 at Homewood Field on Saturday. Mount St. Mary’s gave 17th-ranked Bryant all it could handle before falling 9-7 on the road on Saturday.

Series History: Johns Hopkins and Mount St. Mary’s are meeting for the sixth time in a series that dates to a 19-6 Johns Hopkins victory in 2006. The Blue Jays have won each of the five previous meetings, including a 15-3 victory in 2007 in JHU’s only other trip to Mount St. Mary’s.

These are the Facts: Johns Hopkins enters this week’s game against Mount St. Mary’s with an all-time record of 940-306-15 (.751). The Blue Jays own nine NCAA titles, 29 USILA titles and six ILA titles for a total of 44 national championships.

Poll Position: Johns Hopkins was ranked ninth in last week’s USILA Coaches Poll and eighth in the Warrior/Inside Lacrosse Media Poll. Mount St. Mary’s was not ranked in either poll. Rankings for April 14 were not available in time to be included in this edition of the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse notes, but JHU’s official ranking at the time of the game will be what the Blue Jays check in at in the USILA Poll.

Closing on Mr. Scott: Dave Pietramala picked up his 154th victory as the head coach at Johns Hopkins with the 11-6 victory against Maryland and he continues to close in on the record for most career coaching victories at Homewood. Only Bob Scott, who won 158 games as the head coach at JHU from 1955-74, has won or coached (214) more games than Pietramala at Johns Hopkins.

Career Win Number 177: In addition to his 154-53 (.744) mark as the head coach at JHU, Dave Pietramala also postd a 23-17 record in three seasons as the head coach at Cornell and now boasts an overall record of 177-70 (.717). Pietramala’s 177 wins rank 10th among active Division I coaches.

New Blue: The Johns Hopkins lineup features six new starters after a large senior class departed Homewood last spring. The six are spread throughout the lineup and include Eric Schneider (G), Rob Enright (D), John Kelly (D), Holden Cattoni(M), Connor Reed (M) and Ryan Brown (A). Brown did start four games at midfield last season, but made the move to his natural attack position this season, and Enright had five career starts through his first two seasons.

New Blue II: In addition to the six new starters in the lineup, the overall Blue Jay roster is also vastly different than a year ago. Gone are 11 seniors who exhausted their eligibility and in their place are 17 freshmen.

Youth Will be Served: Johns Hopkins is fielding one of the youngest rosters in the nation this season as 17 of the team’s 49 players are freshmen and 29 are either freshmen or sophomores. Only nine of the 49 are seniors and two of those nine - Eric Schneider and Phil Castronova - have an extra year of eligibility and are planning to return for the 2015 season.

For Starters: Entering the 2014 season, the entire 49-man Johns Hopkins roster counted a total of 132 combined career starts to its credit. Of those 132, Rob Guida (38), Jack Reilly (30), Brandon Benn (29) and Wells Stanwick (17) accounted 114, or 86.7%. No other returning player had started more than five games for the Blue Jays. By contrast, last year’s 11-man senior class graduated with a combined 321 starts with six of those 11 players earning 45 or more starts during their careers.

An Offensive Group: Johns Hopkins enters this week’s game against Mount St. Mary’s averaging 12.2 goals per game and the Blue Jays have scored at least 10 goals in all but one game this season. Entering the game against Maryland, JHU ranked 11th in the nation in scoring offense, second in assists per game and eighth in points per game. Updated NCAA statistics are published on Mondays and were not available at press time.

Sharing the Ball: An effective part of the Blue Jay offense this season has been the ability to move the ball and that has shown up in the percentage of the team’s goals that have been assisted thus far. Through 10 games, 78 of JHU’s 122 goals have been assisted, or 63.9%. Only three times since 2003 has Johns Hopkins finished a season with more than 60% of its goals being assisted. The 2003 team assisted on 67.4% of its goals, while the 2004 (64.3%) and 2009 (62.4%) teams also eclipsed the 60% mark.

Extra, Extra: Johns Hopkins converted on two of its four extra-man opportunities last week against Maryland and is now 18-of-33 (.545) for the year. The Blue Jays ranked third in the nation in extra-man offense heading into the Maryland game. Brandon Benn (6 EMO goals), Holden Cattoni (5), Ryan Brown (4) and Wells Stanwick (3) have combined to score all 18 EMO goals for JHU this season.

Kennedy, Faceoff Unit Shines: Behind the efforts of junior Drew Kennedy, Johns Hopkins ranked third in the nation in faceoff winning percentage entering the game against Maryland. Despite a rare off day against the Terps (JHU was 6-of-21), the Blue Jays have still won 150-of-248 (.605) as a team on the year.

For his part, Kennedy has been a workhorse as he is 143-of-228 (.627) through 10 games and also has a team-high 100 ground balls thus far. He ranks among the national leaders in faceoff winning percentage and ground balls per game (10.0) after winning 21-of-25 faceoffs with 15 ground balls against Syracuse, following that with a 16-of-25 performance with 11 ground balls at Virginia and capping a three-week run against top 10 teams with a 20-of-26 showing with 13 GBs against North Carolina. The 21 faceoff wins and 15 ground balls against the Orange are both career highs.

Holding Them Down: The Blue Jays have held the opposition scoreless for long stretches at key points this season. The 10 teams Johns Hopkins has played thus far have 13 scoreless droughts of 11 minutes or longer and 10 of 15 minutes or longer. JHU held Maryland scoreless for stretches of 20:11 to open the game and 18:52 immediately after the Terps scored their first goal.

More Holding Them Down: Johns Hopkins has held each of its 10 opponents under its season scoring average (current average) thus far. The Blue Jays held Albany to just eight goals (just over half of what the Great Danes entered the game averaging), and Maryland to just six goals (less than half the Terps’ average entering the game). In all, JHU has held eight of its 10 opponents to nine goals or less.

Hopkins dominates Maryland in newest chapter of historic series

Hopkins dominates Maryland in newest chapter of historic series

Posted on 13 April 2014 by WNST Staff

BALTIMORE, MD – The ninth-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team used a 4-0 run that bridged the second and third quarters to turn a 2-1 lead into a 6-1 advantage and the Blue Jays never let third-ranked Maryland get closer than three in the final 25 minutes as JHU scored an 11-6 victory before a Homecoming crowd of 9,553 at Homewood Field on Saturday. In winning the 111th meeting between the two teams, Johns Hopkins improves to 7-3 on the year, while Maryland had a two-game winning streak snapped and slips to 9-2.

Johns Hopkins held Maryland off the board for more than 20 minutes to open the game, but a Joe LcCascio extra-man goal at the 9:48 mark of the second quarter sliced a 2-0 deficit in half. On the strength of a stingy defense and the play of goalie Eric Schneider, the Blue Jays would hold the Terps scoreless for more than 18 minutes after LoCascio’s goal and Hopkins used the four-goal spurt to take control.

An extra-man goal by senior Brandon Benn with 2:46 remaining in the first half was the first of three goals the Blue Jays would score in the final three minutes of the second quarter as the 2-1 lead swelled to 5-1 by halftime. Junior Wells Stanwick added an extra-man goal off a slick cross-crease pass from sophomore Holden Cattoni 50 seconds after Benn’s goal and Stanwick then snuck one just inside the near post from goal-line extended with eight seconds left in the opening half.

A transition goal by Benn just 2:32 into the third quarter pushed the lead to 6-1, a score that held until Rustin Bryant ended the scoring drought for the Terps with an extra-man goal of his own with just under six minutes remaining in the period.

Stanwick closed out the third-quarter scoring by completing his hat trick in the final 90 seconds of the period before Bryant added his second man-up goal of the game early in the fourth quarter to make it 7-3.

The Blue Jays’ largest lead of the game came midway though the final quarter when Cattoni and sophomore Ryan Browntallied unassisted goals in a span of just over two minutes. Cattoni surprised Maryland goalie Niko Amato with a 10-yard shot on a dodge from the top, while Brown beat Amato with a dodge from behind the goal to give the Blue Jays what appeared was a comfortable 9-3 lead with eight minutes to play.

The six-goal lead was sliced in half in less than three minutes as Henry West scored back-to-back goals in a span of just 45 seconds and LoCascio added another extra-man goal with just over five minutes left in the fourth quarter to make things interesting.

Maryland, which got a 15-of-21 performance on faceoffs from junior Charlie Raffa, had possession with a chance to cut the deficit further, but Schneider made a pair of big saves, including one on LoCascio from in tight, to preserve the three-goal lead.

The Blue Jays milked the clock late and scored a pair of goals in the final 3:21 in timer-on situations as Brown capped a long possession with strike from in-tight on a slick feed to the crease from Stanwick and freshman John Crawley added his second goal of the game in the closing minute to account for the final scoring.

The 11 goals, which match the most allowed by the Terps this season, were spread among five Johns Hopkins goal-scorers with Stanwick leading the way with his three. Benn, Brown, Cattoni and Crawley all added two goals with Stanwick (3g, 1a) and Cattoni (2g, 2a) registering four-point games on the day.

Schneider and the Blue Jays defense were on-point, especially in six-on-six situations, as Maryland didn’t score an even-strength goal until the 53rd minute of the game and finished with just two in the game. The Terps did cash in on 4-of-6 extra-man chances, but a 12-save performance from Schneider and 12 caused turnovers by the Blue Jays were more than they could overcome.

LoCascio, West and Bryant all scored twice for the Terps, who also got three assists from senior midfielder Mike Chanenchuk, but Maryland’s starting attack managed just one assist and no goals on seven shots against JHU’s starting defense of senior Jack Reilly, Rob Enright and John Kelly. That trio combined for 10 ground balls and four caused turnovers.

Johns Hopkins has less than 48 hours until it returns to action as the Blue Jays travel to Mount St. Mary’s for a game against the Mountaineers on Monday, April 14 (4 pm). The game was originally scheduled for March 4, but was postponed due to snow.

Notes: Johns Hopkins is now 70-40-1 all-time against Maryland and has won 10 of the last 13 games against the Terps when entering the game ranked lower than UM• Today’s game was the final regular season game between the two teams with Johns Hopkins as an independent and Maryland as a member of the ACC … both teams will compete in the Big 10 next season • JHU was 2-for-4 on extra-man chances and is now 18-of-33 (.545) on the year • Stanwick’s hat trick today is the seventh of his career.
