Six days after a decisive win at then-No. 2 North Carolina, the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team couldn't muster an encore performance at Princeton.
The No. 3 Blue Jays fell behind early and never led in an 18-7 loss against the unranked Tigers on Friday afternoon in Princeton, New Jersey. The hosts scored the game's first three goals, went on a 10-0 run at one point, and were never threatened en route to their largest margin of victory ever in 87 games against Hopkins.
