Maryland's men's lacrosse team used a five-goal second-half run to pull away for an 11-8 victory against Johns Hopkins on Saturday at Homewood Field in the regular-season finale for both teams. With the win, Maryland secured the Big Ten Conference regular-season title.
The No. 9 Blue Jays (8-5, 3-2 Big Ten) got back-to-back goals from senior Ryan Brown to tie the score at 6 midway through the third quarter. But the Terps (12-2, 5-0) took charge from there, holding Hopkins scoreless for more than 22 minutes to pull away for the win.
The game marked the 114th meeting between the two schools; JHU leads the all-time series 71-42-1.
