Their only loss all year was at McDaniel, but at the same place less than two weeks later the Johns Hopkins women’s soccer team got the victory when it counted the most to win their second-straight Centennial Conference title and 11th overall conference championship.

The Blue Jays scored three second-half goals as they beat the top-seeded Green Terror in Westminster, 3-1. Maggie Coulson scored two of those goal while Meg Van de Loo’s 20th goal of the year was the game-winner.

In the 49th minute Coulson netted the first goal of the game when she drove the ball towards the goal and lifted a ball over McDaniel goalkeeper Sarah McDonald. She tried the put the ball over the bar, but the ball hit the bottom of the cross bar and went into the goal.

JHU continued to build on their lead just four minutes later when Van de Loo collected a loose ball off a McDaniel goalkeeper, dribbled it to the top of the box and ripped a shot into the far post to put the Blue Jays ahead 2-0.

Eight minutes after that, Johns Hopkins went ahead by three goals with Coulson’s second of the game. Kristen Hori took a shot, but it was deflected it to Coulson. With room, she took a touch on the ball and ripped it into the corner of the goal from 20 yards out.

JHU’s 3-0 lead came with 30 minutes left. Eight minutes later Nicole Hill crossed a ball from the right end line to Allie Titus for a McDaniel goal, but the Blue Jays held on for the win. The teams were even 9-9 on shots in the game and 3-3 in corner kicks. The Green Terror had a chance to take control of the game in the first half when they had six of their shots and all three of their corner kicks, but Clara Aranguren made four saves in the game to keep the Blue Jays ahead.

The Blue Jays remain undefeated all-time in the Centennial Conference Tournament when playing as the number two seed, improving to 10-0-2. the Blue Jays secured a bit to a 15th-straight NCAA Tourament and will learn what team and where they will play on Monday at 1:30 when the NCAA selection show takes place on NCAA.com.

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.
