The 11th-ranked Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse team got a combined nine goals and eight assists from its starting attack trio of Wells Stanwick, John Kaestner and Brandon Bennand the Blue Jays used an 11-0 game-ending run to fuel a 15-4 victory over visiting Navy at Homewood Field Saturday afternoon. Johns Hopkins held the Midshipmen scoreless for the final 28:02.
Despite controlling the game statistically in the first half, the Blue Jays found themselves in a 4-4 tie after Gabe Voumard polished off his hat trick for the Midshipmen with a laser into the top corner less than two minutes into the second half.
That tie held for just over three minutes before Benn quick-sticked home a feed to the crease from Stanwick to complete his own hat trick. It took all of seven seconds for the Blue Jays to extend the lead as a clean win on the ensuing faceoff by Mike Poppletonled to a Kaestner goal that was also assisted by Stanwick. An unassisted goal by Kaestner less than two minutes later made it 7-4 and the Blue Jays never looked back.
