Posted: April 21, 2011

Notre Dame got a total of 12 goals from just three players and registered a mild nonleague lacrosse upset over visiting Radnor on Wednesday.

The Irish (7-1), ranked No. 6 in the state, needed four goals each from Carlianne McCabe, Kristen Bandos, and Bree Buysse to earn a 14-11 win over the No. 2 Red Raiders (8-1), who suffered their first loss of the season.

"Today we faced excellent competition," Notre Dame head coach Erin Cook said. "They challenged us in every facet of our game and the girls really stepped up."

Four was the key number for Octorara in its 4-2 Ches-Mont League win at Oxford.
