Senior Dene' DiMartino and freshman Miranda Ibello scored three goals each as the No. 17 Johns Hopkins women's lacrosse team rallied for an 11-8 win against Marquette in its season-opener at Homewood Field on Friday afternoon.

The win was the 250th in the career of JHU coach Janine Tucker, who has coached the Blue Jays since 1994, and the 400th in the program's history.

Marquette (0-1) jumped to a 3-0 lead in the game's first 13 minutes, getting six saves from goalie Sarah Priem in that span. Hopkins got on the board at the 15:12 mark on a goal by DiMartino, and Ibello scored her first career goal 72 seconds later.

The Golden Eagles led 6-4 early in the second half, but JHU (1-0) scored four consecutive goals in a 10-minute span to take control.

Emily Kenul and Haley Schweizer scored two goals apiece for the Blue Jays, and Jenna Reifler had three assists. Goalkeeper Caroline Federico made 11 saves.

JHU returns to action Wednesday against American at Homewood Field at 4 p.m.
