Notre Dame wins 8th straight game

Despite being down by 4 goals at halftime, the Fighting Irish came back to beat the Georgetown Hoyas by a score of 9-7. Notre Dame is now 9-1 (4-0) on the season, while Georgetown is now 5-6 (1-3).

To lead to comeback, Senior midfielder Eric Keppeler helped the Irish offense with two goals, matching his career-high total. Fellow seniors Sean Rogers and Max Pfeifer each had 1 goal and 1 assist, while freshman attackman Conor Doyle had two assists.

“We cashed in our chances in the second half and we didn’t do that in the first half,” said Irish head coach Kevin Corrigan. “We had some chances in the first quarter, but didn’t cash them in. Our poise was tremendous in the second half. It was a great second half for us against a good Georgetown team that really needed to win. It’s always tough to play against a team that really needs a win.” -und.com

Notre Dame outshot Georgetown 39-33. The Hoyas had an 11-8 advantage in faceoffs.  The Irish went 1-for-6 in man-up opportunities, while Georgetown was 0-for-3.
