Baltimore
- Johns Hopkins' midfielder Joel Tinney buried the game-winner with time running out in the first overtime to defeat Loyola, 14-13, at Homewood Field. Tinney took a pass from Blue Jay Pat Fraser just inside the midfield stripe and sprinted cross-field, faking a ball flip back to Fraser before continuing to the right of the goal, squaring up on the run, and firing a left-handed shot from roughly 10 yards out to seal the victory.

With the goal, Hopkins moves to 3-0 on the season. All three of its victories are against Maryland foes (Navy, UMBC, Loyola). The Greyhounds drop to 0-2, with both losses coming in overtime. Despite yielding the game-winner, goalie Jacob Stover played well, making 14 stops for the Greyhounds. Hopkins' attackman Shack Stanwick led all Blue Jay scorers with four goals and one assist.

Loyola hosts Lafayette (0-2) this Saturday, while Hopkins travels to Chapel Hill to take on the defending national champion Tar Heels (3-0) in a battle of unbeatens.
