The Towson men's lacrosse team scored five consecutive goals over a 17-minute period spanning the second and third quarters, then held on for a 7-5 victory against fifth-ranked Johns Hopkins on Tuesday night at Unitas Stadium in Towson.

The win was the Tigers' first against the Blue Jays since April 27, 1996, ending a run of 19 consecutive JHU wins in the series. Johns Hopkins leads the all-time series 39-4.

The Blue Jays (1-1) led 3-1 in the second quarter following goals by Wilkins Dismuke, Wells Stanwick, and Ryan Brown, but a five-goal spurt put Towson (1-0) in front for good. Brown pulled JHU within 6-4 with 27 seconds to play in the third quarter, but the Tigers iced the game from there and won 11 of 15 fourth-quarter ground balls to secure the victory.

Tyler White came up big in net for the Tigers with 12 saves. Eric Schneider had 11 saves for the Blue Jays, who were outshot 34-31.

Johns Hopkins returns to action Saturday at Villanova at 1 p.m.
