Baltimore, MD – The Johns Hopkins Blue Jays paid fitting tribute to Jeremy Huber this Saturday at Homewood Field. The freshman defenseman from Las Vegas passed away suddenly on January 25 in his dorm room at Hopkins. The team honored him prior to the game by affixing his #19 to their helmets and jerseys, and adding a #19 to the turf of Homewood Field.

In the ensuing game against UMBC (0-1) they also served his memory well with a 16-4 season opening victory over the Retrievers. Junior Ryan Brown (Calvert Hall) scored seven goals in his career performance for Hopkins (1-0).

Two Stanwick brothers were on the same field for the Blue Jays for the first time. Freshman Shack Stanwick had three goals and one assist and joined brother Wells Stanwick on attack. Wells had three assists for the Blue Jays.

UMBC’s Pat Young scored two goals to lead the Retrievers (0-1). Redshirt sophomore goalie Connor Gordon turned away eight shots. Last season he started all 15 games for the Retrievers in goal and was named to the America East All-Rookie Team as UMBC finished at 8-7 on the year.
