First-year attackman Joey Epstein scored three goals, and Brett Baskin and Alex Concannon added two goals apiece as the Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team cruised to an 11-4 win against Mount St. Mary's at Homewood Field on Tuesday night.
No. 17 Hopkins (3-3) spotted the Mountaineers (3-5) a 2-0 lead, then used a 10-1 run to take command. Epstein opened the scoring for the Blue Jays with seven seconds left in the first quarter, sparking a six-goal run that put the home team in front to stay.
The win was the 200th at Johns Hopkins for Coach Dave Pietramala, who improved to 200-84 in 19 seasons with the Blue Jays. He is the 17th coach in Division I history to reach the 200-win mark with one school.
Epstein led a balanced attack for Hopkins and now has at least two points in all six of his career games. Sophomore goalie Ryan Darby made 12 saves for JHU, and classmate Kyle Prouty won 11 of 12 faceoffs and collected four ground balls. Complete box score
