Junior Kyle Marr scored with 14 seconds remaining, lifting the sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team to a 13-12 win against No. 9 Rutgers on Sunday night in Piscataway, New Jersey.
Marr took a pas from senior Shack Stanwick about seven yards in front of the net, and with just one second on the shot clock fired a shot to the top corner of the net while falling to the ground. The goal gave the Blue Jays (7-2) their sixth consecutive win. This was the Big Ten Conference opener for both teams.
The Scarlet Knights (7-3) led 9-6 with under five minutes to play in the third quarter, but a goal by Patrick Fraser ignited a 4-0 run that put JHU in front. Rutgers evened the score at 12 with 3:05 left, setting the stage for Marr's game-winner.
Fraser paced Hopkins with three goals, and sophomore Cole Williams added two goals and four assists. Connor DeSimone also scored twice, and Stanwick had a goal and four assists, giving him at least one point in a school-record 57 consecutive games. Goalkeeper Brock Turnbaugh had nine saves.
