How it Happened
• Freshman Liam Moylan put the Blue Jays on the board early with his first goal of the season. Senior Samy Ramadane sent a corner kick into the box and sophomore Cole Rosenberger headed it to Moylan, who slipped a shot past Michael Tringali in the 11th minute.
• A pair of freshmen connected in the 43rd minute to give Hopkins a 2-0 lead. Matthew MacFarquhar took a pass from classmate Achim Younker at the top of the box and buried a shot in the upper left corner.
• Hopkins pushed its lead to 3-0 in the 57th minute and this time it was Moylan who did the assisting. He played the ball back to Ramadane, who ran onto it and one-timed a shot under Tringali and inside the left post.
• Sophomore Gerrit Church made it a four-goal game in the 72nd minute with a highlight reel goal. Dribbling down the right touchline, sophomore Sebastian Salathe crossed the ball to the opposite side of the box. Church settled the ball, faked out a defender and then fired a shot just inside the far post.
