Hopkins Wins 11th Straight - Tops Dickinson 47-6

More news about: Johns Hopkins

BALTIMORE, MD -- Senior quarterback Hewitt Tomlin threw for 390 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for another to lead the 20th-ranked Johns Hopkins football team to a 47-6 win over visiting Dickinson at Homewood Field Friday evening. The win is the 11th straight for the Blue Jays, who tied the school record for consecutive wins with the victory. Johns Hopkins now boasts the third-longest active winning streak in all divisions of NCAA football. The 6-0 start is the best for Johns Hopkins since 2005, when the Blue Jays won their first seven games. This is the fifth time in school history that Hopkins has won its first six games in a season.

With his 390 yards of total offense in the game, Tomlin became the Centennial Conference's career leader in total offense (9,154), while also tying the league record for career 300-yard passing games (9). His efforts fueled a 632-yard outburst for the Blue Jays that ranks as the second-best in school history. Only a 675- yard showing against Susquehanna in 1952 sits ahead of tonight's output.

The Blue Jays (6-0, 5-0 Centennial) led just 10-3 early in the second quarter before scoring two touchdowns in an eight-minute span to push the lead to 24-3 at the half.

A one-yard run by senior Nick Fazio capped a 10-play, 73-yard drive to make it 17-3 and junior Jonathan Rigaudadded a 25-yard scoring run with just over a minute remaining in the first half to push the lead to 24-3.

Rigaud's touchdown was setup by a missed 55-yard field goal by the Red Devils with just over two minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Blue Jays needed just seven plays and 66 seconds to cover 62 yards with Rigaud's scoring run polishing off the drive.

Any hopes of a Dickinson (2-4, 2-3 CC) comeback were dashed in a five-minute span midway through the third quarter when Tomlin threw a 45-yard touchdown pass to junior Scott Cremens and a 44-yard touchdown pass to senior Sam Wernick. The scoring passes, which bookended a 47-yard field goal by Dickinson's David London, gave the Blue Jays a 37-6 lead late in the third quarter and Tomlin capped his night with a two-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.

A 28-yard field goal by JHU's Neil Vranis closed the scoring with just under seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter to account for the 47-6 final score. London and Hopkins' Richie Carbonehad exchanged short field goals after Fazio's game-opening touchdown to account for the 10-3 score that stood until Fazio's second touchdown ignited the three-touchdown spurt by the Blue Jays. Cremens capped the 20-0 run with his 45-yard touchdown reception midway through the third quarter. London's 47-yard field goal came a little over three minutes after Cremens' touchdown catch, but the Tomlin answered that with the 44-yard strike to Wernick two minutes after that.

Tomlin, who missed Johns Hopkins' previous two games, was 25-of-38 for the 390 yards and two scores. His 390 yards are the third-highest single-game total in school history and the second-highest total of his career.

Tomlin's showing overshadowed a tremendous effort by sophomore wide receiver Dan Wodicka, who tied his career high with 11 receptions for a personal-best 202 yards. The 202 receiving yards rank as the sixth-highest single-game total in school history.

The Blue Jay defense limited the Red Devils to just 223 yards of total offense. Mike Shimkin enjoyed a productive night running the ball as he gained 80 yards on just 12 carries, but three Dickinson quarterbacks combined to go just 11-of-23 for 76 yards and the Blue Jay defense came up with three sacks and two fumble recoveries. Senior Kale Sweeneyled the Blue Jay defense with eight tackles, including two for losses and 1.5 sacks, and also forced a fumble.

Dickinson safety Scott Sullivan was all over the field as he posted a game-high 13 tackles and added an interception for the Devils, but the Blue Jays kept drives alive on third down (11-of-17) and rushed for 199 yards to go along with 433 through the air.

Johns Hopkins will return to action on Saturday, October 22 when the Blue Jays travel to Gettysburg.
