Ursinus scored a touchdown in the final seconds of the first half and on the opening play of the fourth quarter as the Bears rallied from a 10-point second-quarter deficit to beat Johns Hopkins, 21-17, at Homewood Field yesterday.

The Blue Jays' 11-game winning streak ended as they slipped to 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the Centennial Conference.

The win was the second straight for Ursinus, which evened its overall record at 4-4 and its league record at 2-2.

T.J. Lyons capped a six-play, 44-yard drive with a 19-yard touchdown run with 6:42 remaining in the second quarter as the Blue Jays took a 17-7 lead.

After the teams traded possessions, Ursinus used a nine-play, 59-yard drive that quarterback Vince Gallagher capped with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Justin Zielger with six seconds remaining in the first half.

Gallagher was 6-for-7 for 51 yards on the drive and rushed for the other 8 yards on a second-and-14 play that he followed with a 9-yard completion to Brandon Evans.

Hopkins had possession in Ursinus territory twice in the third quarter but couldn't score.

Gallagher moved the Bears 90 yards in five plays to take the lead.

His 32-yard touchdown pass to junior Josh Hannum just seven seconds into the fourth quarter came under heavy pressure and gave the Bears the lead for good.
