Baltimore, MD – In front of a vocal Homewood Field crowd, the Johns Hopkins football team defeated Moravian 33-14 on Saturday to move to 3-0 on the season. It was the 36th win in the last 37 regular season outings for the Blue Jays.

Senior quarterback Braden Anderson continued to improve the effectiveness of Hopkins’ short passing game, hitting on 25-34 attempts, typically for less than ten yard per connection. On the ground, his eight-yard run up the right sideline for a score helped the Blue Jays pull away to a 24-7 advantage in the third quarter.

Moravian dropped to 2-1 with the loss.

On the far side of scrimmage cornerback Curtis Antrum had a total of five tackles, holding up the corner against the run and helping Hopkins to neutralize the effectiveness of Moravian quarterback Mike Hayes. A combination of defensive line pressure and an opportunistic secondary forced the sophomore signal-caller into three interceptions.

The Blue Jays now find themselves 12th-ranked in the country after the win and will head north to Muhlenberg on Saturday to face the Mules.  Muhlenberg (3-0) has outscored their opponents 135-17, is ranked 23rd in the country, and will present Hopkins with their stiffest challenge to date this season. Kickoff is scheduled for two PM.
