The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team rallied from a fourth-quarter deficit Saturday to secure a 9-7 victory against Rutgers at Homewood Field in the first Big Ten Conference lacrosse game for both schools.
The No. 19 Blue Jays (4-5) trailed 7-6 entering the fourth period but got goals from Holden Cattoni, Ryan Brown, and Wells Stanwick over the final 15 minutes for the victory. It marked JHU's first win this season in a contest decided by two or fewer goals—the Blue Jays had lost four such games earlier in the season.
Hopkins led 6-3 at halftime but was held scoreless in the third quarter as the Scarlet Knights (4-7) put together a four-goal run. But Rutgers stumbled in the fourth quarter, turning the ball over on six of its eight possessions. The other two possessions ended with saves by JHU goalkeeper Eric Schneider, who finished with 11 saves.
Brown paced the Blue Jays attack with four goals, and Cattoni added two. Cody Radziewicz and John Crawley also scored for Hopkins, which visits Ohio State on Sunday at 6 p.m.
