Ursinus quarterback Thomas Garlick scrambled 8 yards for a touchdown with 20 seconds remaining on Saturday afternoon, lifting host Ursinus to 21-17 victory against the Johns Hopkins football team and putting an end to the Blue Jays' 45-game regular-season winning streak.

No. 8 Hopkins (4-1) had won 40 consecutive games against Centennial Conference opponents heading into Saturday's game. Their most recent loss against a league foe came on Nov. 3, 2012.

The Bears (5-0) took over at their own 26-yard line with 5:03 to play moments after JHU took a 17-14 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback David Tammaro. Ursinus marched 74 yards in 13 plays for the winning score, converting all four of its third-downs in the process. Garlick's game-winning scramble came on a third-and-7 play from the Blue Jays' 8-yard line.

Tammaro had a hand in both Hopkins TDs—in addition to his fourth-quarter scoring run, he also threw for 258 yards, including a 9-yard touchdown to Brett Caggiano. The Blue Jays were outgained 433-412 in the game. Complete box score

Hopkins returns to Homewood Field on Saturday to take on Franklin & Marshall at 1 p.m.
