    SOUTH BEND, Ind. Freshman attacker Dana Dobbie (Guelph, Ontario) scored four goals and dished out an assist but a 7-2 run over the final 18 minutes of the first half helped No. 3 Notre Dame to a 13-8 lacrosse win over Ohio at Krause Stadium Tuesday afternoon.

    The Fighting Irish got on the board first when Lauren Fisher scored 5:50 into the contest. Meghan Murphy made the score 2-0 in favor of UND at the 6:54 mark, but the Bobcats evened the score with the next two goals. The lead was cut in half just 12 seconds later by senior Melissa Menna (Downington, Pa.), on an assist from Dobbie, who then tied the game at two on a free position shot at the 10:05 mark.

    Notre Dame broke the deadlock with 17:54 remaining in the half on an unassisted goal by Kassen Delano. Fischer tallied her second goal of the game at 14:27 to push the lead back to two. Dobbie answered with her second goal at 16:35, but the Irish ran off three straight goals to stretch the lead to 7-3.

    Dobbie gained her hat trick on an assist from Becky Oxman (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) with 1:39 left in the period to make the score 7-4 at intermission.

    The teams traded goals within nine seconds in the first two minutes of the second half. UND scored first, followed by Caitlin Links (Finksburg, Md.) long run and conversion with 28:51 remaining in the contest.

    But from there, it was all Notre Dame as the Irish ran off four straight goals enroute to a 12-5 lead.

    The Bobcats tried to rally, getting goals from Dobbie and Lynz Keys (Whitby, Ontario) just 27 seconds apart, the latter on an assist from Oxman with 10:47 to play. Keys answered an Irish goal by Simon with just under five minutes to play, but neither team scored after that for the final margin.

    Simon led the Irish with three goals, while Fisher added a pair and an assist.

    Jennifer Cassidy tallied 12 saves in goal for the Bobcats, who fell to 5-4 with the loss. Ohio continues its road swing Sunday at Virginia Tech.
