Women's soccer: Johns Hopkins' NCAA run ends with quarterfinal loss to Williams
Ephs score 3-0 victory, eliminate Blue Jays for third time in four seasons
For the third time in four seasons, the Johns Hopkins women's soccer team saw its season end with a loss to Williams in the NCAA Division III tournament.
The host Ephs (20-1-1) got a first half goal from junior Natalie Turner-Wyatt and two second-half scores from senior Natasha Albaneze for a 3-0 win in a quarterfinal game played in Williamstown, Massachusetts, on Sunday afternoon.
The No. 11 Blue Jays (18-3-3) owned a 19-14 edge in shots and attempted 10 corner kicks compared to one for Williams, but they couldn't find the back of the net. A penalty kick by Michelle Santangelo in the 72nd minute went wide of the goal.
Johns Hopkins fell to 1-5 all-time in NCAA quarterfinal games. In its lone trip to the Final Four, Hopkins lost 1-0 to Williams in 2014. A year ago, the Ephs ended the Blue Jays' tournament run in the round of 16.
