When Syracuse needed a faceoff win against Johns Hopkins to start overtime last Saturday, it turned to the senior who’s delivered many times before.

Ben Williams, one of college lacrosse’s elite talents at the X, had won only 3-of-11 there in the second half as the Blue Jays clawed back from a four-goal SU run to take a late one-goal lead. But senior Nick Mariano tied the game at eight with 34 seconds left, and now Williams had a chance with a critical possession on the line against JHU’s Hunter Moreland: a player Williams’ father, David Williams, called his son’s “kryptonite.”
