Juniors Lindsay Karle and Sienna Stritter each scored three goals for the Knights (2-0, 4-2-4).
Karle started things quickly with goals in the fourth and sixth minutes of play. She scored her first from eight yards out after a cross from junior Chandler Wickers and a quick pass from freshman Elena Gray. Karle's second goal came on an accurate shot from 12 yards out and was unassisted. Stritter got her first goal in the 10th minute after a nice feed from junior Emma LaPorte. Stritter dribbled the goalkeeper and scored from close range. Karle scored in the 20th minute with a well-placed 20 yard blast. Stritter then took a nice feed from Gray and drove a 20-yard shot low into the corner of the goal in the 34th minute to push Menlo's lead to 5-0 at halftime.
Stritter finished the Menlo scoring six minutes into the second half with another good shot from 20 yards out, unassisted. Notre Dame connected in the 34th minute on a strong individual effort. Menlo's defense was led by Amanda McFarland, Hannah Rubin, Alexandra Walker, Jamie Corley and keeper Kelly McConnell. Menlo outshot NDSJ, 18-2.
