Senior attackman Conor Ford (St. Paul's) scored three goals and added one assist as the top-ranked Johns Hopkins closed the regular season with an 11-7 victory at Loyola Saturday afternoon.

The win is the sixth straight for the Blue Jays, who end the regular season with an 11-1 record for the third straight year. Loyola closes the season at 4-8.

Hopkins jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first 15:30 of the game and the 'Hounds were never closer than three the rest of the way. Loyola's Stephen Brundage finally ended the shutout at the 9:46 mark of the second quarter.

Patrick Kennedy and Greg Leonard extra-man goals bookended a Joe Landry tally in the first 5:44 to quickly pull Loyola within 9-5 with 8:16 to play. Kyle Harrison scored just seven seconds after Leonard's tally, but Jordan Rabidou and Pat Shek goals in a span of just 54 seconds with still more than five minutes remaining made it 10-7. The Blue Jays held off the 'Hounds the rest of the way and Matt Rewkowski's second goal of the game closed the scoring
