HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. // Tom Dooley scored three goals as No. 18 Hofstra rolled past No. 8 Johns Hopkins, 11-6, Saturday afternoon at Shuart Stadium.

Dooley and Tim Treubig extended the lead to 6-1 with back-to-back goals in a span of less than a minute midway through the second quarter and a smothering Hofstra defense kept the Blue Jays off the board for the rest of the half.

The win is the first for Hofstra against Johns Hopkins since 1999 and improves the Pride to 2-1. It was the second straight defeat for the Blue Jays (2-2), who lost to Princeton last Saturday.

The Pride defense forced nine first-half turnovers.

Hopkins junior Jesse Schwartzman allowed all 11 goals and made 10 saves before giving way to sophomore Graydon Locey late in the fourth quarter.
