BALTIMORE, Md. - The Dickinson field hockey team dropped their first Centennial Conference game of the season on Wednesday night falling 5-0 to second-ranked Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field.
The Blue Jays had the Devils under siege throughout the first quarter firing eight shots and forcing three saves out of Saige Stevens. Unfortunately for Dickinson Grace Nockolds finally broke through with 11:55 gone in the first for the 1-0 lead.
JHU kept up the pressure in the second recording all ten shots of the frame, scoring three times to take a 4-0 edge at halftime.
To start the third quarter the Red Devils finally sustained some offensive pressure with Amanda Fruman (2) and Hannah Spiri each testing Alexis Loder inside the first four minutes of the period. Izzy Thompson and Nockolds missed the mark for the home side, while Spiri had another attempt blocked by the defense sending the game to the fourth.
Lucy Walrond got the Devils lone shot of the frame just 94-seconds in but missed the cage. 24-seconds later Maura Minter added the final marker of the contest for the 5-0 final.
Dickinson stays on the road to continue Centennial Conference play on Saturday when they visit Bryn Mawr at noon.
