Jesse Cole's First Career Goal Lifts JHU Over McDaniel 1-0

Jesse Cole scored her first goal for Hopkins on Wednesday.
The Basics 
• Score: #11 Johns Hopkins - 1, McDaniel - 0
• Records: #11 Johns Hopkins (11-2-1, 6-0 CC), McDaniel (9-4, 5-2 CC)
• Location: Westminster, MD (Soccer Field)
• The Short Story: Jesse Cole scored her first collegiate goal as the Johns Hopkins women's soccer team defeated McDaniel on the road on Wednesday afternoon by a 1-0 score.

How it Happened
• Early pressure by JHU led to shots by Insa Mannstadt and Kyla Persky but both were blocked by the Green Terror defense; a Thea Harvey-Brown shot also sailed high in the opening ten minutes of the match.
• McDaniel's best chance in the half came off a corner kick at 26:07, but Abby Keen's shot was turned away by Robyn Lipschultz to keep the game scoreless.
• With just under three minutes remaining in the half, Cole collected a loose ball in the box and put what turned out to be the game-winning goal past Green Terror goalkeeper, Sydney Kelly, to put Hopkins up 1-0.
• JHU would once again pepper the McDaniel defense with a number of shots early in the second half, however, none were able to find the back of the net.
• Maddie Schwartz looked to tie the game for the Green Terror at 75:27, but her shot was saved by Lipschultz, and Hopkins would claim the 1-0 win.

What it Means
• JHU is 24-5-0 all-time against the Green Terror.
• The Blue Jays have won 23 of last 24 games against McDaniel, with the lone loss coming last season (Oct. 22) at McDaniel by a score of 3-2. JHU responded later in the season with a 3-1 win in the Centennial Conference Tournament.

Inside the Box Score
