Junior midfielder John Crawley scored twice in a 60-second span late in the fourth quarter, then netted the game-winning goal less than two minutes into overtime to lift the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team to a 12-11 win against Penn State in State College, Pennsylvania, on Sunday night.
The No. 14 Blue Jays (7-4, 2-1 Big Ten) scored the game's first four goals and never trailed but couldn't put away the Nittany Lions (7-5, 1-2), who twice rallied from two-goal deficits in the fourth quarter. Penn State's Matt Florence scored with 29 seconds remaining to force extra time.
But in overtime, Hopkins capitalized on a PSU turnover to take possession, then got the decisive goal from Crawley on a pass from Cody Radziewicz.
Crawley and Holden Cattoni each had three goals for the Blue Jays, and Ryan Brown and Wilkins Dismuke added two apiece. Goalkeeper Brock Turnbaugh had nine saves.
Hopkins returns to action Saturday at Michigan at 5 p.m.
