February 20, 2010|By From Sun staff reports

Steven Boyle had six goals and two assists to power the host Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team past Manhattan, 14-3, in its season opener Friday at Homewood Field.

Boyle, a senior, had a hand in seven of the fifth-ranked Blue Jays' first nine goals, as he scored five and handed out both of his assists in the first 32 minutes.

He scored back-to-back unassisted goals in the first seven minutes to give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead.

Mike Maydick and Michael Kimmel (Loyola High) then scored back-to-back goals in a seven-minute span to push the advantage to 4-0 early in the second quarter.

Hopkins' smothering defense held the Jaspers (0-1) scoreless for three quarters.

The Blue Jays outshot Manhattan 40-23, had a 45-24 edge in ground balls and won 15 of 20 faceoffs.

Hopkins, which has seven starters back from last season's 10-5 team, will host No. 20 Delaware at 5 p.m. Tuesday.


Navy 14, Robert Morris 4: Kathy Young had a career-high four goals and six points, and Erin Rawlick added a game-high five goals as the Midshipmen (3-0) topped the Colonials (0-1) at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

Rawlick has a team-leading 23 points (14 goals, nine assists) through three games.

Young leads Navy rookies with 11 points (six goals, five assists).

Navy led 5-1 at halftime before pulling away over the final 30 minutes, outscoring the Colonials 9-3.

The Mids will host Longwood on Sunday at 1 p.m. before heading out on the road for the first time this season next weekend at Davidson.
