Colgate Takes Down Notre Dame
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The Notre Dame women's lacrosse team suffered its first setback of the 1998 campaign as the Irish dropped a 15-6 decision to visiting Colgate at the Loftus Sports Center.
Notre Dame, which had won its firs three games of the season, falls to 3-1, while Colgate earned its second straight win to improve to 2-1 on the year.
Torrey Fazen scored four goals to lead the Red Raiders, while Angela Currier added three goals and dished off three assists.
Notre Dame had six different players score in the contest. Freshman Lael O'Shaughnessy netted a goal and dished off two assists. Kerry Callahan also scored once and assisted on one Irish score.
Colgate jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the contest before Notre Dame got on the scoreboard when Lael O'Shaughnessy scored off transition for the Irish with 14:35 remaining in the first half.
After Fazen put the Red Raider up 5-1 with 8:20 remaining before intermission, Callahan took an O'Shaughnessy pass and put it past Colgate goalkeeper Hilary Meyer to cut the deficit to 5-2 just 11 seconds later. That was as close as Notre Dame would get the rest of the game as Colgate scored six unanswered goals and held the Irish scoreless for nearly 17 minutes. Maura Doyle finally ended the Notre Dame scoring drought when she took a Callahan feed and put it into the net with 21:55 left in the game.
Notre Dame returns to action Sunday, March 22 when the Irish host Vanderbilt at noon.
