UVa Men's Lax Beats Hopkins 11-10 in Overtime

Posted: Updated:
Sophomore Greg Coholan scored a goal with 1:09 remaining in overtime to lift the #10 UVa men's lacrosse team to an 11-10 win over #8 Johns Hopkins at Klockner Stadium Saturday night.

Coholan says, "We just got to get the next one, the next play. I honestly wasn't thinking it was all me. I came up the right side and hit the breaks and saw an open shot and took it."

The three goals against the Blue Jays are a career high for Coholan, and the Wahoos won in OT for the second time this season.

Virginia head coach Dom Starsia says, "I was absolutely holding my breath at the end. We sort of ran out of options on that last possession on offense but we did want to get the ball to Coholan and he was able to make a play for us, so that was good."

The win secures UVa's possession of the Doyle Smith Cup.

The trophy goes to the winner of the regular season match-up between the 'Hoos and the Blue Jays.

Virginia's win snaps a three-game winning streak for the Blue Jays in the series, and the Cup returns to Charlottesville for the first time since 2010.

Ryan Lukacovic was a huge component in Saturdays upset, scoring one of his goals on a transition pass from Tanner Ottenbreit to tie the game at 10-10 with five minutes left.

Virginia will host VMI Monday at 7 PM at Klockner Stadium.
