The loss snapped Virginia’s four-game winningstreak as the Cavalier fall to 4-2 this season. The third-ranked Blue Jaysimproved to 3-1 with the win.

The two teams battled through two lead changes and eight ties, beforeO’Kelly and Dan Denihan tallied back-to-back goals midway through thefourth quarter to give the Blue Jays a 16-14 lead with 5:48 to play.Virginia attackman Tucker Radebaugh scored his fifth goal of the game with34 seconds remaining to pull Virginia within one at 16-15. After Hopkins’Eric Wedin won the ensuing faceoff, Virginia got the ball back after anillegal stick against Hopkins, setting the stage for one final Cavalieropportunity with 21 seconds remaining.

The Cavaliers worked the ball around for nearly 15 seconds looking for ashot, only to have Brandon Testa stick-check the ball away from DrewMcKnight with time expiring as the ball rolled loose.

The Blue Jays jumped to an early 3-1 lead on a goal by Conor Denihan andtwo by Schlott. But the Cavaliers struck back quickly, scoring six of thenext seven goals to take a 7-4 lead. Radebaugh scored twice during the run,which also included goals by Conor Gill, Aaron Vercollone, Hanley Holcomband David Baruch.

Holcomb’s goal was the first one for Virginia during the run, but provedcostly as he was called for an unsportsmanlike penalty. O’Kelly made theCavaliers pay for the penalty with an extra-man goal just 22 seconds in theman advantage. The goal ignited a three-goal run for Hopkins before thehalf as Schlott and Conor Denihan tallied to tie the game at seven atintermission.

Radebaugh scored two goals during a 4-2 Virginia surge to open the thirdminute, but Hopkins tied the game at 11 on back-to-back goals by ConorDenihan and Schlott less than a minute apart late in the third quarter andneither team would have more than a one-goal advantage before O’Kelly andDan Denihan’s goals midway through the fourth quarter gave JHU the 16-14lead it wouldn’t relinquish.
