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.
