Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse's Kyle Marr scores five straight goals, Blue Jays rally to beat Georgetown in OT
Johns Hopkins found itself with its back against the wall and its season on the line, trailing Georgetown 8-3 late in the third quarter of the first round of the NCAA tournament. But the No. 5-seeded Blue Jays rallied to win 10-9 in overtime after Kyle Marr scored five consecutive goals and assisted on another to close out regulation on a 6-1 run to force overtime.
JHU's Shack Stanwick then scored the game-winner in overtime.
Georgetown's Robert Clark put the Hoyas ahead 8-3 with 7:59 remaining in the third quarter but Johns Hopkins' defense held them to just one goal in the final 23:58 of the regulation, allowing Marr to cut the deficit in the final quarter. He scored goals at the 14:03, 12:34, 7:15, 6:16, and 4:03 marks in the fourth quarter, with the final goal tying the game at nine goals apiece.
Marr now has a team-high 39 goals on the season, as he improved upon his nationally-ranked 2.27 goals-per-game average.
