Box Score

PITTSBURGH, PA - The 18th-ranked Johns Hopkins men's soccer team rallied in the second half to down Mount Union, 3-1, at the Radisson Invitational Saturday evening. The Blue Jays improve to 5-1-0 on the season while the Purple Raiders slip to 3-3-0 overall and saw their shutout streak end at 294:35 minutes.

Mount Union dominated the stats in the first half, as the Purple Raiders peppered the Blue Jay goal with shots. Senior goalie Ravi Gill (Morganville, NJ/Marlboro) came up with five first half saves to keep Hopkins in the game. The Purple Raiders would finally get one past Gill late in the first to take a 1-0 lead into the half. A Hopkins foul in the box gave Mount Union a penalty kick in the 43rd minute. Gill came up with the save on Korey Smerk's shot, but he was able to score off his own rebound to give the Purple Raiders the lead.

Hopkins came back strong in the second half, getting three goals in a span of less then 10 minutes to take a 3-1 lead. The Blue Jays were the beneficiaries of a Purple Raider-own goal in the 60th minute that tied the game at 1-1. Just over two minutes later, junior Evan Kleinberg (South Orange, NJ/Columbia) snuck a shot through the Purple Raider back line and inside the far post to put Hopkins on top in the 62nd minute. Senior Max Venker (Oldsmar, FL/Palm Harbor University) then buried a cross from junior Kevin Hueber (High Bridge, NJ/Voorhees) inside the left post to make it a 3-1 game.

Gill finished with seven saves, a career-high, in earning the win for the Blue Jays. Jon Critell, who saw little action in the first half, made five second-half saves for the Purple Raiders. It was a tale of two halves, as Mount Union held the edge in shots (10-2) in the first, while JHU had the edge in the second (8-6).

 

 

Hopkins returns to action on Wednesday, September 16 as Cabrini visits Homewood Field. The non-conference tilt is slated to begin at 4:00 pm.
