Women's Lacrosse Snaps Two-Game Losing Streak with Win over Duquesne

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Junior Kerry Callahan scored four goals and dished off four assists, while freshman Courtney Calabrese added four scores to lead the Notre Dame women's lacrosse team to a 17-9 victory over visiting Duquesne. The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Irish who also won their first home game of the 1998 campaign to improve to 4-2 on the season.

Calabrese scored three of her four goals in a two-minute stretch that helped Notre Dame take a 10-4 lead into halftime.

The Irish jumped out to a 3-1 lead less than five minutes into the contest, but the Dukes came back to tie the score at 3-3 with 21:31 left in the first half. Notre Dame regained the lead 4-3 on Eileen Regan's unassisted tally, but the visitors knotted the score at 4-4 when Meghan Hungate scored with 10:22 remaining.

Following Hungate's score, Notre Dame went on a 6-0 spurt to close out the first half with Calabrese netting three goals, Grace adding two and Mara Grace adding another.

The Irish scored the first three goals of the second half as Notre Dame built a 13-4 lead in the contest on Callahan's unassisted score with 25:17 left in the game. Duquesne's Danielle Wilderman finally ended the Duquesne scoring drought as she put in an unassisted goal at the 24:53 mark.

Eight different players scored for Irish in the game. Lael O'Shaughessy added two scores, while Maura Doyle added a goal and an assist as the only other two multiple scorers in the game for Notre Dame.

Duquesne, which fell to 1-2 on the season was led by Jessica McGarry's three goals.

Notre Dame returns to action on Friday, March 27 when the Irish travel to Davidson for a 7:00 p.m. contest.
