Sophomores score nine to lead Lady Jays

By MIKE KANEN | March 15, 2012

Hopkins lady lacrosse
posted its second consecutive
victory over a top-25
ranked team on Wednesday
night when the Jays
powered past 15th-ranked
Georgetown, 16-12, in
Washington, D.C. The Blue
Jays improved to 5-2 on the
year, while Georgetown,
who had previously played
two top-five opponents,
slipped to 2-3.
Before Wednesday, the
Lady Jays had last played
a week prior, taking down
19th-ranked Towson in a
defensive stalemate, 5-4,
and carried their momentum
for seven days
into their contest with the
Hoyas.
Against Georgetown,
Hopkins dominated the
first-half, going into the
locker room with a 10-4
advantage. The Blue Jays
scored the game's first
four goals, all from different
sticks. Sophomore
midfielder Taylor D'Amore
started the onslaught, one
of five goals the Canandaigua,
N.Y. native notched on
the night.
Also scoring early and
often for Hopkins was junior
midfielder Courtney
Schweizer, who collected
the second goal of the
game and a hat trick when
all was said and done.
Sophomore midfidler Sammy
Cermack also added a
goal early on, as did senior
attackman Rachel Ballatori.
Cermack netted four
scores on four shots in the
match, while Ballatori had
two goals on two shots and
two assists.
The Jays continued their
stellar play throughout most
of the game, leading by as
much as seven goals with
seven minutes to play before
the Hoyas slowly crept back
into the conversation. Despite
three goals in the final
three and a half minutes of
play for Georgetown, it was
too little too late.
Senior midfielder Candace
Rossi led Hopkins in
assists with three shares.
Also contributing for the
Jays was freshman goalie
KC Emerson, who added
13 saves in 60 minutes of
action.
Hopkins returns to
action this weekend at
Homewood Field to take
on the Crimson of Harvard
in search of their third
straight win. The game is
slated for Saturday at noon.
