WEST POINT, N.Y. -- Billy Evans scored four goals, including the game-winner 17 seconds into overtime, as No. 4 Johns Hopkins edged No. 15 Army, 13-12, yesterday before 1,732 at Michie Stadium.

It's the closest margin of victory in this series since the Blue Jays fell to the Cadets by a goal in 1982. Hopkins (4-2) had outscored Army by an average of 10 goals over the last seven meetings.

Army (4-3) started the fourth quarter with a 4-0 run with two goals by Ross Yastrzemsky to take its first lead of the game at 12-10.

Hopkins tied the game at 12 when Evans and Milford Marchant scored unassisted goals in the final five minutes.

The Blue Jays opened the game with a 6-3 lead after outshooting Army 19-9 in the first quarter. But the Cadets took over in the second half, holding Hopkins to one goal over a 21-minute period before the Blue Jays came back to tie the game.

Army goalkeeper Travis Loving stopped 26 shots.
