Johns Hopkins Men & Women’s Soccer Teams Breeze Into 3rd Rd Of Div. III Soccer Tournaments
On the women’s side, with a game that was played at Homewood Field in Baltimore, Senior F Michelle Santangelo and Junior M/D Kyla Persky each had a goal in the Blue Jays (17-2-3) 2-0 dominant victory over the Wilkes Colonels during the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Tournament 2nd Round.
No goals were scored during the first half, but during the 50th minute (49:33 mark), Persky’s header bounced into the net, giving Johns Hopkins a 1-0 lead.
Just nine minutes later, Santangelo (with an assist from Sophomore M Carly Lupton-Smith) at the 58:52 mark, scored her goal, giving the Blue Jays the 2-0 advantage.
The most impressive stat from this game was the 19-1 shot advantage Johns Hopkins had over Wilkes or the fact that Sophomore GK Robyn Lipschultz faced no shots on goal during the entire match.

In the second half, at the 60:10 mark, Arden Chew’s goal (assist by Freshman M Alejandro Maclean) gave Johns Hopkins the 2-0 score that would hold up for the rest of the game.
