The Johns Hopkins women's soccer team came up one win short of advancing to the national semifinals for the second time in program history, falling 2-0 to William Smith on Sunday in an NCAA Division III quarterfinal matchup in Geneva, New York.

The Blue Jays (17-3-4), who advanced to the quarterfinals with a 2-0 win against Centennial Conference rival Dickinson on Saturday, dominated the game statistically—taking 17 shots to just three for the Herons—but were unable to score.

William Smith (20-1-1) broke a scoreless tie in the 59th minute on a goal by Julia Keogh. Twelve minutes later, the Herons struck again, with Sheila McQuillen slotting a shot into the net.

Hopkins goalkeeper Caitlin Hendricks saw her outstanding streak of more than 589 minutes of game play without allowing a goal—a streak that spanned five complete games and parts of two others—come to an end.
