Feb. 12, 2014
NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Cincinnati lacrosse team dropped its season opener at No. 11 Notre Dame, 25-1, on Wednesday night in South Bend. The Bearcats lone goal came on a free position from senior Megan Bell (Parkton, Md./Hereford).
"Opening with the No. 11 team in the country is a tremendous challenge," head coach Gina Oliversaid. "We look forward to making some adjustments and competing next weekend in Florida."
The Irish came out firing in the lid-lifter, finding the back of the cage 14 times in the first half. Rachel Sexton scored four goals for Notre Dame, while Cortney Fortunato and Grace Muller each added a hat trick.
Bell scored the free position goal in the second half on her second shot of the game. Taylor Young (Cincinnati, Ohio/Sycamore) also registered a shot on goal for the Bearcats.
Oliver's squad will return to action on Friday, Feb. 21, at Stetson. The Bearcats follow that up with a trip to Florida on Sunday, Feb. 23, to reach the halfway point of their season-opening six-game homestand.
