* Despite the loss of Kerri Hanks, Brittany Bock and others, Notre Dame showed it will have plenty of firepower, scoring three times in the first 14 minutes against Virginia before the Cavs rallied late to earn a 3-3 tie in a game played Friday in Maple City, Mich. Sophomore Melissa Henderson scored twice, while junior Erica Iantorno and sophomore Jessica Schuveiller each recorded a pair of assists for the Irish.
