YORK, PA - In a game befitting two top-10 teams, it would take two overtimes to decide the winner between sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins and 10th-ranked York on Wednesday afternoon. For the second straight game, it was a freshman that came through for Hopkins as Thomas Mourmouras' (Biddeford, ME/Cheverus Jesuit Prep) goal, the first of his career, in the 106th minute gave the visiting Blue Jays a 2-1 win over the Spartans.

In the fourth minute, senior Scott Bukoski (Sagamore, MA/Bourne) had Spartan goalie Jesse Derksen beat with what appeared to be the game's first goal, but it was cleared off the line by Aaron Beale. However, Hopkins would get on the board in the 11th minute on a strike from junior Sean Coleman (Lee, NH/Exeter/UNH). A Spartan foul set up a Blue Jay free kick about 26 yards from goal. Senior Evan Kleinberg (South Orange, NJ/Columbia) tapped the ball over to Coleman, who snuck a shot inside the left post for his second goal this season. For the Blue Jays it was their first goal against the Spartans since 2007 - a stretch of more than 388 minutes.

The game went back-and-forth from there and York finally drew even in the 79th minute. Beale played a long ball into the Hopkins box from the right side, looking for the head of Mike O'Connell on the far post. O'Connell missed the ball, but the ball slipped just inside the left post to knot the game at 1-1. It was the Spartans' first goal against the Blue Jays in more than 344 minutes. A tie game is a situation these two teams are used to as the last two meetings between them as ended in scoreless draws. This one would turn out differently however, though not without a pair of overtimes.

Mourmouras' goal was set up by another set piece, this one near the right end line, about 16 yards out. The ball came across the top of the box to freshman Danny Reategui (Ashburn, VA/Broad Run), who flicked it back to Mourmouras. He collected the ball and lofted it over Derksen and into the net kicking off a celebration on the Blue Jay sideline.

Senior Ravi Gill (Morganville, NJ/Marlboro) finished with one save to earn the win, while Derksen had five in the loss. Hopkins held the advantage in shots (16-6) and corners (9-6). It is just the third loss at Graham Field for the Spartans since the facility opened in 2006. York last loss at home on October 3, 2009 to Christopher Newport.

Hopkins returns to action on Saturday, September 11 at the Cialella Classic against New Jersey City. Game time is set for 2:00 pm.
