Commodores fall to No. 2 Notre Dame

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Vanderbilt women’s lacrosse team fell to No. 2 Notre Dame 16-6 on Wednesday afternoon at the Vanderbilt Soccer/Lacrosse Complex.

Notre Dame (7-0) scored the first 11 goals of the game before Maddie Miller got the Commodores on the board at the 5:38 mark.

Gwyn Devin followed with a goal with 2:42 left in the half, but the Fighting Irish held a 12-2 advantage at the break.

Vanderbilt (4-5) got back-to-back goals from Miller and Karlie Bucci to close within 14-5 with 15:01 to play. But that was as close as the Commodores would get in the second half.

Goalkeeper Lily Argyle made seven saves and finished with a .500 save percentage in more than 47 minutes of action.

Miller and Devin each scored twice, while Bri Gross led the Commodores with three draw controls and Melissa Hawkins finished with a team-high three ground balls.

Notre Dame held a 17-7 advantage in draw controls, a 26-14 edge in shots and a 17-13 lead in ground balls.

Four of Vanderbilt’s five losses have been to top 25 opponents.

Vanderbilt hits the road for the first time in nearly a month when the Commodores head Rock Hill, South Carolina, to take on Winthrop at 11 a.m. CT Sunday.
