With two interceptions, Jack Toner moved into a tie for second all-time on the Blue Jays career list, four behind the current record.

With two interceptions, Jack Toner moved into a tie for second all-time on the Blue Jays career list, four behind the current record.

There was a 15-minute span from the second quarter through into the third quarter in which the Blue Jays scored 35 unanswered points and that sort of quick-strike ability was the big difference for them against Dickinson on Saturday night. The No. 8 Blue Jays remained unbeaten with a 45-10 victory over the winless Red Devils.

The Blue Jays gained 512 yards of offense with over 200 of those yards coming on the ground. They also doubled Dickinson’s first downs in the game, 28-14. JHU quarterback Jon Germano completed 22 of 33 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns. Bulldozing back Ryan Cary finished the game with 111 rushing yards and two more scores. He had 39 more receiving yards as well to lead his team with 150 all purpose yards.

Cary pushed past the 1,000 career rushing yards mark with his effort on the ground while senior Jack Toner continued to move up the all-time interceptions list with a pair in the game. Toner now has six interceptions on the season and moved into a tie for second place all-time with Matt Campbell at 16. He is four shy of the career record at Johns Hopkins.

It was his first interception of the game that also set the Blue Jays up for their first score.

Toner picked Billy Burger off at the Dickinson 39 yard line. After two middling games by Dane Rogerson on the ground he busted loose for a 30-yard touchdown run to put JHU up 7-0 nine minutes into the game.

Toner picked Burger of again late in the first quarter. JHU wasn’t quite able to build on the touchdown right then and saw Dickinson get on the board with a 43 yard field goal by Stephen Walker in early in the second quarter, but following that Dickinson score, JHU really got some momentum going.

The Blue Jays went on a 76 yard drive with Germano opening the drive with two long passed to Quinn Donaldson, Then Cry got going on the drive and had runs of19 ad 12 to help get the Blue Jays on the goal line. It took a few plays, but Germano hit Bradley Munday in the endzone for a touchdown.

That sparked JHU’s run of dominane in the game.

Just a bit later in he drive JHU scored again with several big plays getting them down the field. Germano hit Donaldson down the field for gained of 20 and 12 and had an 11-yard pass go to Boone Lewis Jr before Cary had a 25-yard touchdown run to put the Blue Jays ahead 21-3. And they added another touchdown before halftime with Germano completing four of five passing attempts to take the Blue Jays 64 yards down the field into the endzone. His last pass was a 16-yard strike to Luke McFadden for the score.

Out of the break they scored again, going 52 yards in less than two minutes on only six plays. Munday caught his second touchdown of the game from four yards out. JHU then made it a fourth-straight drive and fifth our of six ending with a touchdown when Cary scored another touchdown with 6:17 remaining in the third quarter to put JHU ahead 42-3.

Germano had a 40-yard completion to Brett Caggiano on the drive while Cary rushed for 30 yards on three hand-offs.

JHU would actually score on a fifth-straight drive when Jamie Sullivan booted in a 32 yard field goal at the open of the fourth quarter. That came right after Burger ran in from seven yards out to give Dickson 10 points in the game.

The Blue Jays will return home on Friday to host Gettysburg 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.
