As women's soccer student-athletes head home for Christmas break and the 2017 calendar year concludes, the Irish faithful are encouraged to check out this past season's top-five moments.
No. 5: Jennifer Westendorf collected one of five "first goals" this season at the 57:24 mark of No. 24 Notre Dame's game against No. 4 North Carolina to give the Irish a 1-0 advantage. Notre Dame ultimately battled the Tar Heels to a 1-1 draw at WakeMed Park in Cary, North Carolina, to close the regular season. Westendorf's five first goals in 2017 rank tied for the 16th-most in program history.
No. 4: In the final minute of Notre Dame's 4-0 shutout victory over Ball State, senior Katie Uhler scored her first career goal on the team's home turf at Alumni Stadium. Uhler rebounded Sammi Fisher's shot off the crossbar and netted a goal with 89:07 on the clock to secure Notre Dame's first win of the season on Aug. 20.
