Aston, PA- Neumann fell today to the College of Notre Dame 18-9 in PAC conference play. The Knights could not contain the Gators who scored eleven goals in the first half. The loss puts the Neumann at 2-2 in conference play this year.
The Knights were not able to keep pace with a speedy Gators squad in the first half of play. Amelia Yatto had seven goals and Anne Shippen had three in the half. On three separate occasions Notre Dame scored three or more goals in a row. The Gators went into halftime with an 11-4 lead.
After the halftime break, the Knights struck first with a goal from Gabby D'Ambrosio but the Gators answered right away taking a 12-5 lead. The College of Notre Dame created a lead as much as 18-7 but the Knights did not give up scoring two late goals by Emily Glackin and Sarah Poynter to cut the lead to 18-9 and that is how the game would end.
Neumann looks to rebound April 1st against Alvernia College at 4:00 PM.
