Lacrosse roundup: Johns Hopkins women win 8th in a row

Dene' DiMartino scored three of her career-high-tying four goals in the second half Wednesday to lead No. 9 Johns Hopkins past visiting Boston University, 11-8.

The Blue Jays tied the school Division I record for wins to start the season with their eighth straight. The Terriers, who have yet to play a home game this season, fell to 1-5.

Less than two minutes later, Jenna Reifler (Roland Park) took a pass from Sammy Cermack and scored the first of her two goals.

After some end-to-end action, DiMartino scored to end a nearly seven-minute drought at the 10:02 mark for her fourth of the day. She dodged from the top and scored with four defenders surrounding her to push the lead to 9-6.
