In a game that featured nine ties and six lead changes, a decisive rally from seventh-ranked Virginia lifted it to a 16-15 overtime win against the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team on Saturday.

The No. 19 Blue Jays (3-5) trailed 13-12 before netting three goals in a four-minute span midway through the fourth quarter to grab a 15-13 lead. JHU then had a 30-second 6-on-4 advantage at the 2:45 mark, but the Cavaliers defense held and that set the stage for a wild ending. Virginia (6-2) scored twice in the final 94 seconds of regulation, then got the game-winner from Greg Coholan 1:31 into overtime to claim the victory.

Holden Cattoni paced Hopkins with four goals, the last of which came with 4:43 to play and staked JHU to a two-goal lead. Joel Tinney added three goals and two assists, and Cody Radziewicz had two goals.

Johns Hopkins plays its first-ever Big Ten Conference game when it hosts Rutgers on Saturday at 2 p.m.
