Senior Drew Kennedy won 18 of 24 faceoffs, senior goalkeeper Eric Schneider made 13 saves, and the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team rolled to a 16-9 Homecoming weekend win against Michigan on Saturday at Homewood Field.
With the win, the Blue Jays improved to 6-6 overall (3-1 in the Big Ten Conference) and secured a spot in the inaugural Big Ten Conference tournament.
Nine players tallied at least two points for JHU, which used a five-goal run spanning the second and third quarters to take a 10-5 lead. Wells Stanwick led Hopkins with three goals—his 11th career hat trick—and an assist. Ryan Brown, Joel Tinney, John Crawley, and Holden Cattoni had two goals apiece.
Davis Joseph scored twice for the Wolverines (5-7, 1-3).
Johns Hopkins will return to action on Saturday when it takes on rival Maryland at 8 p.m. at Byrd Stadium. This will mark the 112th meeting in a series that dates to a 10-0 Johns Hopkins victory in 1895.
The Blue Jays are assured of no worse than the No. 3 seed in the conference tournament and can earn a share of the Big Ten regular-season title with a win at Maryland. The Terps will host the conference tournament semifinals on April 30 and the championship game on May 2.
