Women's lacrosse: Johns Hopkins tops Georgetown in OT, remains perfect

The 11th-ranked Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse team kept its unblemished record intact Friday, rallying to defeat No. 13 Georgetown 11-10 in overtime Friday in Washington, D.C.

The Blue Jays (10-0) trailed 10-8 but got two goals from Dene' DiMartino—including the equalizer with 41 seconds to play—to force overtime. Then, 4:22 into the extra period, JHU senior Sarah Taylor scored her third goal of the game, lifting the Blue Jays their third victory this season against a top-20 opponent.

No. 13 Georgetown (3-4) led 8-6 at halftime, erasing an early 4-0 JHU lead, but was limited to two goals in the second half. The Hoyas held a 26-17 edge in shots, but JHU freshman goalkeeper Caroline Federico, who came off the bench late in the first half, finished with seven saves

DiMartino had three goals and three assists, and Jen Cook added a pair of goals for Johns Hopkins, which visits Vanderbilt on Saturday at 1 p.m.
