JHU loses shootout in Centennial semis

Bryan See made two stops in the penalty shootout and five saves in regulation and overtime for a shutout.

Bryan See made two stops in the penalty shootout and five saves in regulation and overtime for a shutout.

After a 90-minute battle ended in a scoreless draw, the Johns Hopkins men’s soccer team had to enter the coin flip that is penalty kicks, and it was there that the No. 8 Franklin & Marshall Diplomats earned the right to advance with a 4-3 advantage on kicks.

JHU controlled most as they out-shot the Diplomats 21-13. Bryan See also had five saves to preserve the shutout, but the Blue Jays couldn’t capitalize on any of their chances to get the one goal they needed as Dave Reingold made a remarkable 15 saves to preserve the clean sheet.

In the penalty shootout, junior co-captain Mike Swiercz converted his attempt for the Blue Jays and in the second round both Drew Collins and F&M’s Alex Bilodeau had their attempts stopped. Reingold made another stop in the third round to keep Cole Rosenberger’s attempt out. Jimmy Connolly then gave F&M a 2-1 lead. Both Samy Ramadane and Ryan Fincher were successful in the fourth round, but after senior co-captain converted his attempt, See made a crucial stop against Stephan Sherbahn to keep the Blue Jays alive.

Now in sudden death, Reingold got another stop on Jonah Muniz’ attempt and Ugo Okolie converted to send the Diplomats to the title game. JHU finished the season with a 12-3-3 record. Their dozen victories are the most since they won 15 in 2010.

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.
