 In Gunner Garn's first outing as goalkeeper, the senior played well though Michigan eventually fell to Johns Hopkins.

While Garn himself gave up the goals, the Blue Jays’ frequent extra-man chances made it difficult for his defense to truly provide him with much support. Ultimately, in a game where Michigan struggled to remain at full strength, Garn did as well as could be reasonably expected.
