BALTIMORE, MD - Johns Hopkins juniors Sammy Cermack, Taylor D'Amore and Sarah Taylorcombined to score 10 goals to lead the Blue Jays to a 20-10 win over visiting Old Dominion in both teams' season openers Saturday afternoon at Homewood Field. The 20 Blue Jay goals are the most in a season opener since JHU beat Davidson, 21-5 on February 29, 2004.

Taylor, D'Amore and Cermack scored the game's first three goals as Hopkins took a 3-0 lead at the 16:32 mark in the first half. Ashmore Standing put the Monarchs on the board at 13:54 on a dodge from behind the cage. Just over three minutes later, sophomore Jen Cookscored her first career goal when she caught a pass from D'Amore, cocked and fired a shot past ODU's Karen Hayde. Cermack pushed the lead to four with an unassisted tally at 7:38. Jordynn Collins and Christina Rea followed with back-to-back goals just over two minutes apart and Hopkins' lead was down to two at 5-3.

The Blue Jays would close the half on a three-goal run with strikes from D'Amore, Cermack and freshman Dene' DiMartinoand Hopkins led 8-3 at the half. Nicole Bellini would cut the deficit in half with a free position goal just 2:50 into the second stanza. But Hopkins would answer with nine unanswered goals in a span of just 12:12 to push out to a 17-4 advantage. Eight different Blue Jays scored during the run, while Taylor and D'Amore both completed their hat tricks.

Old Dominion did not go away, putting together a 6-1 run to make it an 18-10 game. Standing got the run going with back-to-back goals just 97 seconds apart. Freshman Josie George then scored her first career goal, but the Monarchs responded with goals from four different players. That's as close as Old Dominion would get as Hopkins closed out the game with goals from Cermack and freshman Jenna Reifler.

Cermack led all scorers with four goals for her second career hat trick, while also controlling five draws. In addition to her three goals, D'Amore tied her career highs with five assists and eight draw controls, while Taylor finished with her third career hat trick. Senior Cosette Larashmade eight saves and collected three ground balls to earn the win in the cage. Standing led the Monarchs with three goals and four ground balls, while Bellini added two goals.
