• The Short Story: The Johns Hopkins men’s soccer team got two goals each from sophomores Liam Moylan and Achim Younker in a 6-0 win over host Ursinus Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference action.
How it Happened
• Hopkins needed just 3:36 to get on the scoreboard as Moylan put the Blue Jays on the board with his first goal of the season.
• Younker then scored a pair of goals in a span of less than three minutes to stake Hopkins to a 3-0 lead in the 22nd minute. He made it a two-goal game in the 20th minute when he one-timed a cross from senior Mike Swiercz into the right side of the goal. Younker then tapped in a pass from sophomore Connor Jacobs from the middle of the six-yard box.
• Just like the first half, Moylan was the first to score in the second half. This time he needed only 2:21 to get his second of the game. Freshman Alejandro Maclean crossed the ball from the right side and Moylan one-timed it at the left post to put Hopkins on top 4-0.
• Freshman RJ Moore pushed the lead to five in the 60th minute when he headed home his own rebound off a Brandon Lillian save.
• Freshman Jonathon Brown capped the scoring in the 88th minute and gave the Blue Jays’ a six-goal lead. Junior Gerrit Church lofted a corner kick into the box, where it was deflected by a Bear defender. Brown collected the rebound and buried a shot past Lillian.
What it Means
• Hopkins improves to 36-7-2 against Ursinus and is unbeaten in the last 22 straight matches in the series.
• Hopkins remains in first place in the Centennial Conference with one game to play in the regular season.
