On a sun-splashed day at Alumni Stadium, the University of Notre Dame women’s soccer team turned in a bright offensive performance to defeat Pittsburgh 4-0 Sunday in its Atlantic Coast Conference home opener.
The Irish scored all four goals in the first half against the Panthers, displaying the kind of crisp execution they have been looking to see consistently all season. Seven different Irish players tallied points on the day, and all four goals came on crosses.
Senior forward Kaleigh Olmsted led the Irish with three points (one goal, one assist), including her first goal of the season. Freshman forward Jennifer Westendorf added her team-leading fifth goal of the season to go along with four shots and a game-high two shots on goal. Junior forward Meghan Doyle also added four shots and one assist for the Irish.
