JHU women's lacrosse rallies to knock off No. 7 Loyola

D'Amore, DiMartino net hat tricks; Blue Jays earn first win vs. Greyhounds

Junior Taylor D'Amore and freshman Dene' DiMartino each scored three goals to help the Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse team rallied for an 11-8 win at No. 7 Loyola on Wednesday night.

The Blue Jays (4-0), ranked 17th nationally, trailed 5-4 at halftime, but scored five straight goals after the break and outscored the Greyhounds 7-3 in the second half to secure the victory. It was the first win for Johns Hopkins against Loyola in 13 meetings between the two schools.

JHU got even less than 90 second into the second half on a goal by Sammy Cermack. DiMartino put the Blue Jays ahead to stay less than four minutes later, the first of four consecutive free position scores for JHU.

Jen Cook had two goals for Johns Hopkins, and Katie Duffey and Courtney Scweizer also scored. Goalkeeper Cosette Larash made seven saves.

The Blue Jays return to action on March 9 when they host Northwestern at Homewood Field at noon.
