Host Johns Hopkins got two goals and one assist each from John Ranagan and John Greeley and Matt Dolente won 13 of 14 faceoffs to lead the No. 14 Blue Jays to a 10-3 win over visiting Manhattan at Homewood Field on Wednesday night.

Johns Hopkins (4-1) got goals from eight players.

The Blue Jays needed just 72 seconds to open the scoring as sophomore attackman Zach Palmer dodged from behind the goal and scored from in tight to give the Blue Jays the early lead.

The lead remained at one for nearly the entire first quarter before sophomore Lee Coppersmith blew home his second goal of the year off a feed from Palmer with 31seconds remaining.

A goal by Rob Guida less than four minutes into the second quarter pushed the Blue Jay lead to 3-0, but that was as much distance as the Blue Jays could create in the first half as the Jaspers (0-6) were content to hold the ball for long stretches, at least four of which resulted in stalling warnings before intermission.

Hopkins carried a 4-1 lead into halftime as the teams traded goals in the final minute of the second quarter. A turnover right in front of the Blue Jay net led to an empty-net goal by Manhattan's Brendan Rogers with 48 seconds remaining in the first half, but Greeley answered 38 seconds later as he picked the far post off a skip-pass from Ranagan.

Any hopes for a Manhattan comeback were dashed in the first six minutes of the third quarter as the Blue Jays scored three times in just over three minutes to push the lead to 7-1. Ranagan sandwiched goals around Ben Smith's first career goal as a Blue Jay.

St. Mary's 12, McDaniel 6: Dennis Rosson (Severn) tied the school record for most goals scored in a game with seven for the host Seahawks (1-2).

Towson's lone goal came in the second half on a free-position shot from Kelly Custer.

UMBC 8, Delaware 5: The host Retrievers (4-2) opened with a 3-0 run, two by Ashley Stodter, and never looked back.

The Blue Hens (2-3) scored their first goal at the 17:05 mark. UMBC led 5-3 at the half. Stodter finished with her second hat trick of the season.

Hood 20, Lancaster Bible 7: Kelsey Blackwell scored a career-high seven goals and had two assists for the host Blazers (2-4).
