Blue Jays strike fast in 2-0 win over Fords

Meg Van de loo scored her 13th goal of the year against Haverford.

Meg Van de loo scored her 13th goal of the year against Haverford.

Meg Van de loo and Ana Bengoechea connected twice to lead the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Haverford.

Van de loo scored in just the second minute off a corner kick sent to the far post by Bengoechea. In the 65th minute, Van de loo returned the favor when she slid the ball to Bengoechea, who put the ball into the top left side of the goal.

The Blue Jays out-shot Haverford 14-5 and held a 4-2 advantage on corner kicks in the game as they improved to 11-1-2 and stayed perfect in Centennial Conference play through six games. Goalkeeper Clara Aranguren had two saves to lead Hopkins to their third shutout in four games and fifth shutout of the season. It was the first shutout of the year for Aranguren.

While JHU was stuck in an even battle in the first half, the Blue Jays could afford to move some midfielders back into more defensive roles when they needed because of the early score.

The second half was all Blue Jays as they out-shot the Fords 10-1 after halftime. Haverford’s goalkeeper was peppered with shots in the second half, saving five shots and still allowing another goal.

Van de loo’s goal extended her streak of scoring to nine-straight games.

JHU will remain at home for a game on Wednesday against Dickinson at 7 pm.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
