So much for the Santa Clara women being thin up front!
The Broncos inflicted a 7-1 defeat on Notre Dame Friday night at their Santa Clara adidas Classic.
The seven goals were
the most Notre Dame has ever allowed in a game and were two more than it allowed during the entire 2006 regular season.
Santa Clara was supposed to be thin in attack because of a rash of
injuries -- it lost Jordan Angeli
with a knee injury and promising freshman Chelsea Bednarz
with a foot injury -- but
the Broncos punished the Irish, who are rebuilding their backline.
Sophomore forward Kiki Bosio
scored twice and helped set up two other goals.
Senior midfielder Brittany Klein
scored twice on rebounds and added an assist, while senior forward Meagan Snell
off the bench to score a pair of goals.
Notre Dame lost a pair of four-year starting defenders and two key midfielders to graduation. Junior Carrie
, who is back following ACL knee surgery late in the 2006 season), shifted to her familiar center back spot from her defensive midfield position after the second SCU goal.
