• Score: #23 Johns Hopkins-18, Boston University-11
• Records: JHU (5-2) • BU (1-3)
• Location: Baltimore, MD • Homewood Field
• The Short Story: The 23rd ranked Johns Hopkins women’s lacrosse team used a 6-1 run to take control of the game en route to an 18-11 win over visiting Boston University Wednesday afternoon.
How it Happened
• The teams traded goals over the game’s opening 10 minutes as the teams were tied at two at the 20:15-mark. Freshman Shelby Harrison broke the tie when she scored a free position goal with 12:34 to play. That sparked the 6-1 run that saw the Blue Jays go up 8-3, 11 minutes later. Sophomore Maggie Schneidereith capped the run with her second goal of the afternoon to put the Blue Jays up five with 1:32 to play.
• The Terriers got one back on an Avery Donahoe goal with 49 seconds left to make it an 8-4 game at the break. Ava Barry picked up a loose ball and then fed a cutting Donahoe, who beat junior Haley Crosson high to low.
• The Blue Jays opened the second half with back-to-back goals to push out to a 10-4 lead. Harrison opened the scoring when Fitzgerald passed to a trailing Harrison, who dodged past a pair of defenders and beat Christine Laible from just two yards out. Just 80 seconds later, senior Shannon Fitzgerald caused a turnover on the BU clear, picked up the ground ball and then fed Schneidereith for the quick score.
• Lexi Lewis got one back for the Terriers with a free position goal to make it a 10-5 game with 25:44 to play. Senior Emily Kenul followed with back-to-back goals, including one on a nifty spin move, to push the Jays lead to seven just two minutes later.
• Emily Vervlied scored an unassisted goal in transition for BU to make it a 12-6 game. However, Hopkins answered with goals from junior Miranda Ibello and senior CeCe Finney in a 23-second span to push out to a 14-6 lead. Caroline English ended the two-goal spurt with a goal from the slot at the 17:20-mark.
• The Blue Jays responded with a three-goal run, in a span of two and a half minutes, to take their largest lead of the game at 17-7 by the 13:15-mark. The Terriers came right back with a 4-1 run that spanned the rest of the game and accounted for the 18-11 final.
What it Means
• Hopkins improves to 4-0 all-time against Boston University, with all four wins coming at Homewood Field.
• The Blue Jays scored 18 or more goals in back-to-back games for the first time since February 2014.
• Kenul’s first goal of the game was the 100th of her career, making her the 11th player in school Division I history and 24th all-time in school history to reach the milestone. She also extends her point streak to 16 games.
• Schneidereith’s four goals match her career high while her five points are one shy of her personal best. Harrison and Cordingley each notched their first career hat tricks.
• Crosson finished with a career-best 12 saves in the first double-digit save performance by a Blue Jay goalie since Caroline Federico had 12 versus Rutgers on April 27, 2017.
