Johns Hopkins led the Eagles in shots (28-22), ground balls (19-16) and draw controls (15-13).

No. 6 North Carolina 12, Virginia Tech 10: Down 7-3 at halftime, the host Hokies staged a furious second-half comeback, tying the score at 9 before the Tar Heels went on a 3-1 run to win the game.

The Hokies (4-7, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) were led by Britt Faulkner, who scored a game-high four goals. Allison Higgins (three goals) and Erica LaGrow (two goals) helped the Tar Heels (11-3, 2-1) hold off the Hokies.

Ashley Snider had five goals and an assist for Goucher.

Colleen Baughman scored all three of the Mustangs' goals as they fell to 1-9.

Rowan 10, Washington College 7: A second-half comeback led by Erin Bollinger (two goals) wasn't enough to overcome an early 4-1 deficit for the host Shorewomen.
