[COLLEGE WOMEN: Notre Dame]Sophomore Cari Roccaro's move to forward has paid off for Notre Dame. The U.S. U-20 national team captain followed up on her hat trick in Thursday’s 5-0 win over No. 22 Maryland with a goal and two assists in the Fighting Irish's 3-0 win over Pitt to extend its winning streak to six games.
Junior Lauren Bohaboy got Notre Dame on the board less than 20 minutes into the match with her team-leading sixth goal of the year, and senior Mandy Laddish capped off the comprehensive victory, scoring her first goal of the campaign in the 64th minute.
“It’s been great, a fantastic weekend for Cari,” Notre Dame coach Randy Waldrum said. “She’s been a great spark to our offense, which we’ve needed, especially over the last couple of weekends when we’ve struggled with that. She’s done very well up there and it’s made everyone around her play a little bit better offensively.”
