Women's Lacrosse: Johns Hopkins 16, Marquette 2

Hopefully, head coach Meredith Black can pick out some easy things to improve on as the season continues. - Maggie Bean/MarquetteImages.com

Ok, look, there's good news here.

In the category of good news: Amanda Bochniak put Marquette on the scoreboard first, scoring an unassisted goal that even the camera operator at Homewood Field was unable to keep up with. It was the first collegiate goal for the freshman who went to high school just nine miles away from the Johns Hopkins campus.

Marquette's second goal of the game also came off the stick of a freshman. Attacker and Maryland native Julianna Shearer recorded MU's final strike of the game on a free position shot and cut Johns Hopkins lead to 4-2 with 15:30 left in the first half.

The bad news is pretty much everything else. Marquette was outshot 32-11, and the Golden Eagles only managed six shots on net. Things really spiraled out of control in the second half when JHU outshot Marquette 15-4. Heck, Hopkins scored six goals in the second half while only allowing those four shots by the Golden Eagles. Marquette's top two scorers from last season, Kenzie Brown and Hayley Baas, recorded just three combined shots in the game, the same total as Shearer launched on her own.

Seven different Bluejays recorded goals, including hat tricks from Jen Cook, Sarah Taylor, and Dene DiMartino. Cook had a game high five goals and tacked on two assists for a game high seven points.

Up Next: Things get tougher for the Golden Eagles, as they travel a little bit south on I-94 to face Northwestern on Tuesday, February 25. The Wildcats are currently ranked #5 in the country and opened their season with a 13-12 win over #8 Virginia. They'll play #6 Duke in North Carolina this coming Saturday before facing Marquette in their home opener.
