Junior Colleen McCaffrey scored a game-high four goals and notched the 100th point of her career to lead host Johns Hopkins to an 8-5 victory over fourth-ranked Penn Wednesday evening at Homewood Field.
The Blue Jays earn their first win over a top-five opponent since a 12-9 win over fifth-ranked Virginia in 2007 and it is the highest ranked opponent they’ve beaten since an 8-7 win over third-ranked Princeton in 2006.
