BALTIMORE, Md. -- Emily Kookogey recorded her second straight hat trick for Bucknell, but Taylor D'Amore recorded four goals and four assists to lead Johns Hopkins to a 19-7 win over the Bison on Saturday at Homewood Field.
The Blue Jays (3-0) had outscored their first two opponents 33-4, and they showed off their offensive prowess by scoring 12 straight goals after Katelyn Miller had given the Bison (0-3) a 1-0 lead. Johns Hopkins is receiving votes in both major national polls, making the third straight top-notch program Bucknell has faced to start the year. The Bison had already faced No. 14 Stony Brook and No. 7 Penn State.
Earlier in the week Kookogey scored three times against Penn State, and she added three more second-half tallies on Saturday. Sam Rickels tallied a goal and an assist for the Bison, and Arriana Sajjad scored her first goal in two seasons. Sajjad scored a team-high 38 goals as a freshman in 2012, but she missed all of last season and the first two games of this year with injuries.
Dene' DiMartino and Jenna Reifler added four goals apiece for Johns Hopkins, and Sammy Cermack had two goals and two assists.
The Bison have fared well on draw controls this season, and they played the Blue Jays even in that category in this one. Hopkins finished with a 14-13 edge on draws. Sajjad and Sophie Kleinert tallied three draw controls each for the Bison. Kleinert added four ground balls, while Miller had three ground balls and three caused turnovers.
Bucknell will be back home again next Saturday to face Villanova at noon at Graham Field.
