Arthur's Overtime Goal Leads Hopkins Past #25 McDaniel
BALTIMORE, MD- The Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team won its sixth consecutive game Tuesday night, defeating previously-undefeated and 25th-ranked McDaniel 3-2 in a double-overtime thriller at Homewood Field. Alaina Arthur’s goal in the 109th minute put the Blue Jays up for good and clinched the victory to improve JHU’s overall record to 12-3-1 and Centennial Conference record to 8-1. The win also means Hopkins can finish no worse than second place in the conference.

- McDaniel tied the game at one apiece in the 11th minute when Kristen Upton sent in a shot from 50 yards out and bounced it over the head of JHU’s goalkeeper.
- The Green Terror took the lead in the 62nd minute off the foot of Maggie Quinn. The senior took a cross from midfield and was able to get past the Blue Jays’ back line and beat the goalkeeper.
- Hopkins tied the game in the 80th minute when Issy Berkey connected on a penalty kick. The senior sent a laser into the bottom left corner of the goal to force overtime.
- Arthur’s game-winning goal came with just 1:29 on the clock in double overtime. The senior was able to collect a pass from Sophie Murphy and beat the goalkeeper to win the game for the Blue Jays.
