Blue Jays Dominate Play, Defeat F&M 1-0
LANCASTER, PA- For more than 82 minutes the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team dominated play, but had nothing to show for it. That changed in the 83rd minute when the Blue Jays scored to take a 1-0 lead, on the road, against Frankline & Marshall, Wednesday night. JHU held on to win the game and improved to 7-3-1 on the season and 3-1 in Centennial Conference play. The loss dropped the Diplomats to 3-5-1 in 2015 and 1-2 in CC play.
- The game’s lone goal came at 82:25 when Alexa Rangecroft found the back of the net. Kristen Hori recorded her team-best sixth assist of the season when she dribbled the ball into the box and crossed it to Rangecroft, who deposited it into the back of the net.
Inside the Box Score:
- Hopkins dominated play throughout, outshooting F&M 27-2 in the contest. JHU totaled an 8-0 advantage in shots on goal and 12-1 margin in corner kicks.
- Hori’s six assists put her in a tie for fifth place in program history for most in one season as a freshman. It was the Hawaii native’s sixth straight game with at least one point, which ties her for 10th in program history.

- Bess Kitzmiller and Clara Aranguren shared the goalkeeping duties for Hopkins. The duo split the shutout and neither had to make a save. Aranguren came in to play the second half and earned the victory.
