Cohen Scores, but Devils Dropped by Blue Jays

CARLISLE, Pa. - Galil Cohen scored his first goal of the season with a converted penalty kick in the seventh-minute to give the Dickinson men's soccer team an early lead. However, it would not last as the visiting Johns Hopkins Blue Jays netted the next four to earn a 4-1 Centennial Conference win at Dickinson Park on Wednesday evening.

Cohen's goal came on the Devils first shot of the night after a foul in the box led to the penalty kick. Cohen stepped up to the spot and slotted the ball past Xander LeFevre for the lead. Liam Creedon looked for the immediate response a minute later, but he was denied by John Baney. The Blue Jays would draw level though in the 11th-minute as a DC foul resulted in a pk for the visitors that Creedon put home. Hopkins would carry play the remainder of the half outshooting the Devils 11-0 and forcing Baney to make three stops to keep it 1-1 at the break.

Dickinson almost took the lead early in the second half with their first shot since the Cohen goal coming from Tyson Burling, unfortunately, LeFevre was up to the task. The following nine chances came from the Jays with Andrew Kempe making five saves between the sticks for the Devils in relief of Baney. Ian Whamond made it 2-1 at the 84:16 mark, which was almost answered right away by Luke Beiles but LeFevre had other ideas. The Blue Jays added two more from Daniel Ibrahim and Nathan Charendoff for the 4-1 final.
