Women's Lacrosse Tops Ohio State, 10-9

Irish rally on five goals from Doyle.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Freshman Maura Doyle scored a career-high five goals, including Notre Dame's last three in the final 6:11 of the contest, to rally the Irish women's lacrosse team to a 10-9 victory over Ohio State. The win marked the second upset victory for the second-year program in the last eight days.

Notre Dame, now 6-3 on the season, rallied from a 7-3 halftime deficit and held the Buckeyes to just two second-half goals as the Irish avenged last year's 11-7 loss.

Notre Dame held Ohio State, which fell to 5-4, scoreless in the final 10:40 of the contest after Nicki Jones' goal put the Buckeyes up 9-7.

Doyle tallied the game-winner, her fifth goal of the game, off a free position shot with 1:20 remaining in the contest. She tied the game with 2:04 left to play off an assist from Lael O'Shaughnessy just 4:07 after she had scored to pull the Irish to within a goal (9-8).

Freshman Carrie Marshall played the entire 60 minutes in goal as she made six saves in the second half and finished with 10 for the game.

Courtney Calabrese finished with game with two goals, while Kerry Callahan, Kathryn Perrella and Lael O'Shaughnessy each tallied once. Perrella and O'Shaughnessy also dished off two assists each.

Doyle got Notre Dame on the scoreboard at the 26:39 mark to tie the game at 1-1. After a Buckeye score, Calabrese knotted the score at 2-2 with 21:36 left in the first half before Ohio State netted three unanswered goals over a 13-minute span.

Doyle ended the Notre Dame scoring drought with 5:00 minutes left in the first half to pull the Irish to within 5-3 before the intermission, but two goals right before the break gave the Buckeyes a 7-3 advantage.

Notre Dame began the second half by scoring three unanswered goals of their own as the Irish cut into Ohio State's halftime lead.

The Irish return to action next Saturday, April 11 against Syracuse at noon.
