Freshman Courtney Calabrese scored three times in her collegiate debut, while another freshman Lael O'Shaughnessy added two goals and an assist. Kathryn Perella was the third freshman to contribute as she added a pair of goals.

Notre Dame led 4-1 at halftime, but then erupted for eight second-half goals en route to the victory. The Irish dominated the contest, outshooting UC Davis 40-16 as freshman Carrie Marshall recorded 10 saves in her first-ever collegiate outing.

The Irish return to action on Tuesday, March 10 when they play Stanford in Palo Alto, Calif.
