Women's lacrosse: DiMartino leads Johns Hopkins to OT win at Northwestern

Sophomore scores five goals, Wildcats lose at home for third time in 10 seasons

Sophomore Dene' DiMartino scored five goals, including the game-winner in the second overtime period, as the Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse team topped No. 5 Northwestern 12-11 on Sunday afternoon in Evanston, Ill.

The 13th-ranked Blue Jays (11-2) trailed 3-0 after less than seven minutes, but rallied behind DiMartino and senior Sammy Cermack, who scored twice and had two assists. Senior Taylor D'Amore won seven draws for Hopkins, two shy of the school single-game record.

The Wildcats (9-4), who have won seven of the past nine NCAA titles, had a five-game winning streak snapped and lost for just the third time in 10 seasons at home. Blue Jays goalkeeper Caroline Federico made nine saves.

JHU's 12 goals equal the most allowed by the Wildcats this season.

Johns Hopkins returns to action on Wednesday when it hosts UMBC at 4 p.m.
