Women's lacrosse: No. 9 JHU wraps up regular season with win vs.Ohio State

Blue Jays finish 14-4, earned fifth seed in conference tournament

Jenna Reifler's goal with 3:52 to play lifted the ninth-ranked Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse team to an 8-7 win against No. 10 Ohio State on Saturday in the final regular-season game for both teams.

The Blue Jays (14-3) raced to a 6-2 lead in the first half as five different players scored. But the Buckeyes (12-5) chipped away and tied the score at 7 with eight minutes to play. That set the stage for Reifler, who took a feed from Taylor D'Amore and bounced a shot past OSU goalkeeper Tori DeScenza to put JHU in front for good.

D'Amore scored twice and had three assists, giving her 151 for her career, the most in JHU history. She leads the Blue Jays in goals (48) and assists (43) this season.

Dene' DiMartino added two goals, giving her 42 on the season, and Jen Cook, Sarah Taylor, and Sammy Cermack also scored. Goalkeeper Caroline Federico finished with three saves.

Johns Hopkins earned the fifth seed in the American Lacrosse Conference tournament and will take on No. 4 see Penn State on Thursday at 2 p.m. The conference tournament will be hosted by Northwestern in Evanston, Ill.

Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated JHU's record. The Blue Jays are 14-3.
