Men's lacrosse: Marr's late-game heroics lift Hopkins past Michigan

No. 7 Blue Jays secure spot in Big Ten tournament with 10-9 road victory

Kyle Marr scored with 31 seconds to play, lifting the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team to a 10-9 win against Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on Saturday afternoon.

It marked the second time in four games that the No. 7 Blue Jays (9-3) scored the game-winning goal in the final minute of regulation, a feat they had not accomplished in more than eight years—since February 2010—before this April. With the win, Hopkins qualified for the four-team Big Ten tournament, which begins May 4 at Michigan.

Marr's game-winner, off a pass from Joel Tinney, capped a back-and-forth contest in which each team had a pair of three-goal runs. The Wolverines (7-6) never led, but they did rally from deficits of 3-0 and 7-4 to even the score, then notted the game at 9 on a goal by Brent Noseworthy with 1:04 remaining.

Marr finished with four goals, Patrick Fraser added three, and Tinney scored two goals to go with four assists. Goalkeeper Brock Turnbaugh made 11 saves. Complete box score.

The Blue Jays conclude their regular season on Saturday when they host Maryland at 2 p.m. The winner will claim the conference's regular-season title and earn the top seed in the Big Ten tournament.
