The 11th-ranked Blue Jays (8-4) led 4-3 at halftime, but the Midshipmen (3-10) got even less than two minutes into the second half on a goal by Gabe Voumard. JHU took over from that point, however, taking the lead for good on Benn's goal with 9:54 to play in the third quarter. The Blue Jays outshot the Mids 28-11 after halftime.

Benn led JHU with five goals, Kaestner had three goals and three assists, and Stanwick had one goal to go with five assists. John Ranagan also scored twice, and goalkeepers Pierce Bassett and Eric Schneider combined for eight saves.

Johns Hopkins hosts defending national champion Loyola on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be televised by ESPNU.
