Last year, the Navy Midshipmen pulled off a colossal upset when they beat Johns Hopkins, 8-2, in their last game of the season. That afternoon a motivated home team held the Blue Jays to their lowest single game goal total in 46 years.

On Friday, the top-ranked Maryland Terrapins arrived in Annapolis and were surely lectured on the outcome of last year's Hopkins-Navy match up. The visiting Terps sprinted out to a 3-0 lead before the Mids rattled off five straight goals to move out to a 5-3 lead. 

In the end, the Terps pulled away for an 11-8 victory, led by standout midfielder John Haus. With the Mids at 3-8 on the season, it was a rare loss to build from as they face archrival Army (6-4) this upcoming Saturday at home. Maryland will host Johns Hopkins (6-4) on Saturday.
