[USF-NOTRE DAME]Defending national champion Notre Dame continues to have trouble putting games away, settling for a 1-1 tie at USF before a crowd of 1,124 on a stormy Thursday night in Tampa when Valorie O’Brien scored on header with less than four minutes left in regulation.

Freshman Lauren Bohaboy scored her second goal in as many matches to put the No. 24 Irish (4-4-2) ahead in the 28th minute, but despite a 26-13 edge in shots they could not finish off the Bulls.

"It's a really disappointing finish to a match that started well for us," Notre Dame coach Randy Waldrum said. "We continue to have trouble putting together a complete 90-minute effort, and until we do, this is the result we're going to be left with. Sure, getting a point on the road in conference is valuable, but we can't keep giving away opportunities like this and expect to be where we want to be at the end of the season."

The match was delayed for one hour prior to kickoff when strong thunderstorms rolled through the Tampa area and produced significant lightning.

Until Bohaboy's goal, USF's Chelsea Klotz had the game's best chance that shot that caromed off the left post in the 25th minute. She had another great chance in the 62nd minute but Notre Dame goalkeeper Maddie Fox tipped for shot from 25 yards over the bar for one of her six saves.

“The relentless pursuit to score a goal really paid off,” said USF coach Denise Schilte-Brown.

The crowd of 1,124 at the new Corbett Soccer Stadium was the third largest in the program’s history.
