Recap |  Box Score

Johns Hopkins head coach Dave Pietramala:
"I can't say enough about our seniors. To have never lost at home is just phenomenal." "Our offense played well today and I credit much of that to the offensive coaches, Seth Tierney and Dave Allan. They developed a great game plan and the players executed well." "We were all disappointed with the number of goals allowed on extra man. It's something we'll have to work on in the next week."
"Our defense has led us before, and our offense rescued us today. It's a team game."
"We've been solid on defense throughout the year, but have had some personnel changes that forced us to develop new chemistry, which we're finally getting."
"It was important to get off to a quick start against UMass and never let them think they were in the game. I think we accomplished that."

Chris Watson:
"Homewood has been a special place for us the past four years. We're so proud of the run, and ending it with a great win is a memory we will always cherish."

Matt Rewkowski:
"I'm feeling my best right now. Having being bumped to the first midfield, and having that respect from the coaches really did a lot for my confidence."

UMass head coach Greg Cannella:
"Hopkins got off to a great start and never looked back. We played a lot of defense in the first half, but they're a great team. Their seniors really did it for them early."
"Losing is a temporary thing. Winning and losing are both temporary, and I'm very proud of the season they had."
"I'm really proud of our seniors. People doubted this recruiting class when they came in but they proved them completely wrong."
"We've seen significant changes in this program, and that is a direct result from those seniors."

Jeff Zywicki:
"This wasn't the way I hoped to end my career, but that's the breaks."
"They dominated the possession and there wasn't much we could do about it."

 

 

Sean Morris:
"They dominated the face-offs and capitalized. It was frustrating but we never really got too down on ourselves."
