John Hopkins Upsets Top-Ranked Men's Lacrosse
April 11, 1998
BALTIMORE -- Sophomore midfielder A.J. Haugen and senior attackman Dylan Schlott each scored three goals and junior goalkeeper Brian Carcaterra recorded a career-high 22 saves to lead sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins to a 10-6 victory over top-ranked Maryland in front of 10,219 at Homewood Field. The victory is the fifth straight for the Blue Jays and improves their record to 7-2, while the loss drops the Terrapins to 8-1.
Haugen scored his third goal of the game with 13:57 remaining in the fourth quarter that sparked a decisive four-goal Blue Jay outburst in the fourth quarter. Schlott then added two of his three goals around the second goal from senior Andrew Godfrey as Hopkins out-scored the Terps, 4-0 in the final quarter.
Maryland had erased a 6-2 halftime deficit by out-scoring the Blue Jays, 4-0 in the third quarter. A pair of extra-man goals by Matt Hahn and Bill Ruhl in the first three minutes of the quarter cut the lead to 6-4, and Bob Hanna and Scott Hochstadt each tallied later in the third period to tie the game at six, setting the stage for Hopkins' final run.
Carceterra posted 14 saves in the first half, helping Hopkins to the 6-2 halftime advantage. He followed his first half performance with eight more saves in the second-half and earned Player-of-the-Game honors along with Maryland goalie Kevin Healy, who also made 22 saves.
Senior Andrew Whipple led the Maryland attack with one goal and two assists, while Hochstadt added two goals.
In addition to Haugen and Schlott, the Blue Jays got two goals and an assist from senior midfielder Andrew Godfrey.
