No. 6 Johns Hopkins 4, Dickinson 1
CARLISLE, Pa. -- Junior Hannah Kronick scored her 12th goal of the season and freshman Meg Van de Loo added two to help Hopkins take down Dickinson 4-1 on Wednesday evening. Kronick’s score eight minutes into the first half tied Erica Suter’s (‘12) school record of 55 career goals, and she also tallied an assist on Van de Loo’s first goal. Hopkins improves to 11-1-1 (4-0-1) on the season with the victory.
Entering the second half with a narrow 1-0 lead, Hopkins got to work early with two goals in the first five minutes. Senior Kelly Baker put home her fourth goal of the season in the 47th minute off a long shot from just outside the 18 that stayed just inside the far post. With a 2-0 advantage, the Blue Jays didn’t waste any time, as Van de Loo found herself wide open in the box in the 49th minute. The freshman from Eau Claire, Wis., received a pass from Kronick a buried it past the keeper to put Hopkins up 3-0.
In the first half, the Blue Jays generated significant pressure, but were only able to come away with one goal. Kronick drilled a shot past the Dickinson keeper from the left side off a pass from Baker in the eighth minute, the quickest goal to start a game for Hopkins since August 31 against Averett.
Van de Loo rounded out the scoring for Hopkins in the 62nd minute, after taking a ball down the right side and beating the Dickinson defender with a precise touch. She beat the keeper in the left of the net, and finished with two goals for the second consecutive game. Dickinson’s Jenna Lamb was able to put in a goal in a 65th minute, but the Jays tightened up on defense allowing only four more shots in the half.

EWING, N.J. -- There was no let down for TCNJ as the Lions ripped off a season-high eight goals in an 8-1 road win at William Paterson on Wednesday.
TCNJ was lethal and efficient early as junior Korrie Harkins scored 36 seconds into the game heading in a cross from Sarah Marion. Marion then made it 2-0 with 18:48 expired, waiting at the left post to knock in a shot by Katie Lindacher.
After the Pioneers scored, the Lions needed only 3:42 to get the goal back with Leigh Applestein scoring from Christine Levering. TCNJ added one more goal before the end of the half when Lindacher scored from Levering as the Lions scored on their first four shots on goal in the game.
The offense continued to click in the second half as TCNJ exploded for three goals in a span of 2:11. Harkins got the first of those goals, with Marion striking for the final two, both assisted by Harkins.
Freshman Lauren Malajian capped the scoring with just 20 minutes left with an assist coming from Gina Caprara.
