The Men's Soccer team saw its nine game winning streak come to an end Wednesday night in heartbreaking fashion when the Blue Jays fell victim to Richard Stockton, 4-2, in Pomona, New Jersey. The defeat at the hands of Stockton marked the Blue Jays first loss in over a month as their overall record fell to 12-2.The loss also followed what had started as a positive week for the Blue Jays, who beat Moravian, 3-0, on Saturday. The game against Richard Stockton began badly and ended that way for the Blue Jays, who fell behind early by the score of 1-0 and were never able to take the lead. Remarkably, the Jays rallied to tie 2-2 later in the game by virtue of goals scored by junior defensive player Matt Weill and senior forward Matt Doran. However, after the two Blue Jay goals, Stockton pulled ahead for good, scoring two goals in the final 15 minutes to take the lead and ultimately win the game by a score of 4-2. Prior to the contest, Hopkins players understood that Stockton would be a formidable opponent.
