• The Short Story: Visiting St. John Fisher scored three goals in the final seven minutes to grab a 4-1 win over the Johns Hopkins field hockey team Sunday afternoon.
How it Happened
• The Cardinals struck first as they capitalized on a penalty corner just 11:43 into the game. Lauren Fazio took the corner, sending the ball to the short side to Bre Socker. She collected the ball and sent a low shot to the near post.
• Hopkins came out firing in the second half and the pressure paid off at the 46:26-mark as the Blue Jays tied the game. On a restart, junior Grace Hillman dribbled in and slipped a pass to senior Clare Kavanagh at the top of the circle. She took one touch to her left and blasted a back-handed shot off the blocker of Ashley Maynard and into the top of the cage.
• St. John Fisher would have the final say of the game however with a late-game flurry. Socker started the late run with a goal nearly identical to her first one. That put the Cardinals on top, 2-1, at 63:35.
• Emily Markarian then scored back-to-back goals in a 65-second span to put the game away. Her first came on a deflection with her back to sophomore goalie Jodie Baris at 67:10. She then dribbled in on Baris and slotted a shot past Baris.
