No. 9 Notre Dame holds on for win


NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- A physical, grind it out style of play has become commonplace at the top level of Atlantic Coast Conference soccer. In a match that saw both teams laying everything on the line for an ACC Championship berth, it was Notre Dame that reigned supreme on Thursday night. Senior forward Lauren Bohaboy tied the team-high with her sixth goal of the year in the 27th minute to power the Fighting Irish to a 1-0 shutout of No. 20 Clemson at Alumni Stadium.

No. 9 Notre Dame won its fourth consecutive conference match, limiting Clemson to a handful of sustained possessions in its defensive third throughout the contest. The Fighting Irish held a 12-7 shot advantage over the Tigers in the match, including a slim 5-3 cushion in shots on goal, and attempted three corner kicks to one for Clemson. The Tigers received a pair of yellow cards during a chippy second half, while Notre Dame was issued one caution on the night.

Freshman defender Sabrina Flores pushed the ball down the left wing deep into the Clemson zone in the 27th minute, turning toward goal at the end line while trying to work the ball out in front. A sharp pass attempt was knocked down by a Clemson defender right onto the foot of Bohaboy, who shoveled the loose ball into the short side of the net for the night's only goal at 26:06. It was Bohaboy's third goal in her past four matches.

"I thought it was a fantastic goal," Notre Dame head coach Theresa Romagnolo said. "It started with Sabrina attacking the space, not just settling for a cross but trying to get in behind and picking somebody to get the ball back to. Right now Lo is finding herself in the right place at the right time, and she's working to get herself there. It was a well deserved goal."
