Notre Dame soccer: Irish women blank Orange
Junior defender Sammy Scofield went high to head a deflected free kick with three seconds to play to give No. 7 Notre Dame a dramatic 1-0 win over Syracuse in Atlantic Coast Conference play Thursday night at Alumni Stadium.
Freshman midfielder Morgan Andrews started the winning sequence with a free kick 30 yards out on the left side, driving her service to the heart of the penalty area. Syracuse goalkeeper Brittany Anghel came off her line and punch the ball up into the air near the penalty spot, where junior defender Brittany Von Rueden headed the ball back toward the 6-yard box. Scofield was perfectly positioned and quickly went up to snap her header into the net past two other Syracuse defenders.
