Riorden Saves 20, and No. 20 Albany Upends No. 10 Hopkins

Miles Thompson led the Danes with three goals and two assists, while Ty Thompson (2g) and Haugen (1g, 1a) added multi-point games for for Albany.

Stanwick totaled four goals and one assist for the Blue Jays and senior Mike Poppleton won 14 of 23 faceoffs and grabbed a game-high eight ground balls, but no other JHU player had more than one point. JHU held decided advantages in shots (44-30) and ground balls (34-25), but Riorden's efforts kept Albany in the game and Eich's game-winner provided the difference.

The loss overshadowed a solid effort by Johns Hopkins senior Tucker Durkin, who held Lyle Thompson, the nation's leading scorer at better than seven points per game, scoreless.

Johns Hopkins hits the road next week to renew the greatest rivalry in college lacrosse as the Blue Jays travel to College Park to take on top-ranked Maryland. Game time at Byrd Stadium next Saturday is set for 3:00 pm.
