Evanston, Ill. – The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team closed out its fall schedule with a 17-6 loss to the U.S. Developmental at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., on Saturday, Nov. 2 to finish the fall with a 3-1 record.
In the game, the Irish battled the U.S. team early and trailed just 8-4 at the half, before the national team’s depth wore the Irish down on the way to the final of 17-6.
While this game gave the Irish a chance to face outstanding competition, it was also a chance for Irish standout Kathryn Lam (Sr., Plainsboro, N.J.) to display her talents as a member of the national team. The talented Notre Dame defender played the first half for Notre Dame and the second half as a member of the U.S. team. Lam is the first Irish women’s lacrosse player to play on the national team.
Junior Danielle Shearer (Hempstead, Md.) continued her strong play in the fall as she led the Irish with three goals in the game. Natalie Loftus (Sr., Baltimore, Md.), Anne Riley (Jr., Marblehead, Mass.) and Alissa Moser (Sr., North Wales, Pa.) scored single goals for Notre Dame while Andrea Kinnick (So., West Chester, Pa.) and Angela Dixon (Jr., Pennsauken, N.J.) picked up assists for the Irish.
Junior goalkeeper Jen White (Annapolis, Md.) was kept busy on the afternoon as she made 15 saves while giving up the 17 goals on the afternoon.
