Johns Hopkins took a 9-1 lead and never looked back as the Blue Jays beat Maryland 14-10 tonight at Homewood Field in the 100th meeting between the two teams.

In front of a standing room only crowd of 10,555, Johns Hopkins (8-1) scored six goals on its first six shots to give the Blue Jays a commanding 8-1 lead in the first quarter. Hopkins scored five goals in the opening five minutes.

Justin Smith scored to bring Maryland within 9-2 in the second quarter, then Hopkins' Frank Potucek scored to give the Blue Jays an eight-goal cushion. But a stick check revealed that Potucek's stick was illegal, resulting in a disallowed goal and a three-minute unreleasable penalty for the Blue Jays.

Although No. 4 Maryland (8-2) only managed to score once during the extended extra-man opportunity - a goal by Andrew Schwartzman (Pikesville) , Smith and Joe Walters scored to close the gap to 9-5.

After the Terps ran off three unanswered second-quarter goals, Hopkins goalie Scott Smith was pulled in favor of Jesse Schwartzman (Pikesville).

Healy scored two more times in the third quarter and Walters' second goal brought Maryland within 13-8. But Kyle Dowd quickly answered for Hopkins giving the Blue Jays a 14-8 lead heading into the final quarter.

Maryland's Bill McGlone scored twice in the fourth quarter for Maryland. Hopkins did not score in the final period.

Maryland, which suffered its first loss of the season to Navy last week, didn't get on the board until 10:38 left in the first quarter off a Brendan Healy goal.

Kyle Barrie scored the Blue Jays' first two goals, the second coming off an extra-man opportunity. Barrie scored later on with 7:13 remaining to finish with a first-quarter hat trick.

Hopkins outshot the Terps 18-5 in the first quarter.

Barrie led Hopkins with three goals. Healy led the Terps with three.
