Notre Dame Women's Soccer | Sept. 12, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
Taking a cue from the U.S. Postal Service, neither a lightning delay, nor an early hiccup was going to keep No. 8 Notre Dame from making history on Thursday night.
Sophomore forward Crystal Thomas (Elgin, Ill./Wheaton Academy) collected a goal and an assist, while a pair of juniors -- forward Karin Simonian (Westbury, N.Y./W.T. Clarke) and defender Sammy Scofield (Geneva, Ill./Geneva) also scored goals as the Fighting Irish became the first Notre Dame athletics program to earn a victory in Atlantic Coast Conference play, posting a 3-1 win at North Carolina State in the league opener for both teams on a muggy Thursday night at the Dail Soccer Field in Raleigh, N.C.
