Tomlin Passes Johns Hopkins Over Dickinson

More news about: Johns Hopkins

BALTIMORE, MD – Johns Hopkins junior quarterback Hewitt Tomlin threw for 271 yards and a career-high four touchdowns and the Blue Jays scored on eight of their 12 possessions in a 44-10 victory over visiting Dickinson at Homewood Field Friday night.  Johns Hopkins, which improved to 3-2 overall and 3-1 in the Centennial, had six scoring drives of 50 yards or more in the victory.  Dickinson, which managed just 191 yards of total offense, slips to 1-4 overall and 1-3 in the Centennial. 

The Blue Jays wasted no time taking control as they polished off 87 and 74-yard drives in the first quarter with touchdowns.  Junior Nick Fazio capped a methodical 15-play, 87-yard drive to open the game with a one-yard touchdown run to make it 7-0 and Tomlin threw the first of his four touchdown passes late in the period when he connected with classmate Sam Wernick from 17 yards out to make it 14-0.

Hopkins got its third first-half scoring drive of 70 or more yards midway through the second quarter as JHU moved 85 yards in 16 plays and capped the drive with a five-yard touchdown pass from Tomlin to senior Tucker Michels.  A 23-yard Gordon Craig field goal with eight seconds remaining in the second quarter accounted for a 21-3 halftime score. 

Any hope of a Dickinson comeback was gone less than 10 seconds into the second half when Red Devil kicker David London flubbed an attempted onsides kick and the ball traveled just seven yards before coming to a stop.  Eight plays later Tomlin found sophomore Scott Cremens alone in the back of the end zone to make it 28-3 and the Blue Jays never looked back.

Tomlin added an 80-yard touchdown pass to freshman Daniel Wodicka just under six minutes later to push the lead to 35-3 and senior Alex Lachman hit field goals from 31, 44 and 20 yards in the final 17 minutes of the game to account for JHU's 44 points.

Dickinson capped its most impressive drive of the night – a seven-play, 69-yard effort – with a one-yard scoring run by Mike Shimkin less than two minutes into the fourth quarter for its only touchdown of the game.

Tomlin's efforts overshadowed a solid effort by sophomore Jonathan Rigaud, who posted the first 100-yard rushing performance of his career as he carried 22 times for 115 yards in the win.  Wodicka, who entered the game with nine receptions for 107 yards on the year, had nine receptions for 155 yards and the 80-yard touchdown reception.  The 80-yard catch is tied for the fifth-longest in school history and is the third touchdown pass of Tomlin's career that has covered 80 or more yards.

JHU topped 200 yards rushing (200) and passing (276) as the Blue Jays built a 476-193 advantage in total offense and controlled the ball for 34:05.  Tomlin moved into third place in JHU history in career touchdown passes (37) and career passing yards (5,871).  Lachman's three field goal pushed his career total to 41 and makes him just the second kicker in Centennial Conference history with 40 or more career field goals.

Junior Ryan Piatek led the Blue Jay defense with nine tackles, including one sack.  Classmate Tyler Brown and sophomore Taylor Maciow added six tackles apiece.

Three Dickinson quarterback combined to go just 7-of-16 for 86 yards and the Devils were led on the ground by Jordan Kauffman's 45 yards on 10 carries.  Kevin Wood posted a game-high 13 tackles to lead the way defensively for Dickinson, but the Devils struggled to get the Blue Jays off the field on third down (JHU converted 12-of-20) and Hopkins scored on all six of its trips to the red zone.

Johns Hopkins will return to action next Saturday (October 16), when the Blue Jays travel to Ursinus for a showdown with the Centennial Conference-leading Bears (5-0, 4-0 CC).
