Notre Dame hit three home runs in the opening 40 minutes of play, and Alexis Holloway shut down the Eagles’ offense, as the Irish eliminated BC from the ACC Tournament for the third time in the past five years.
Even though the Eagles were shut out in the frontend of Saturday’s doubleheader, they bounced back to defeat the Yellow Jackets in Game Two, claiming the final series of the regular season.
Carly Severini recorded five RBIs in a span of three innings, single-handedly digging BC out of its own grave, and Cami Sellers polished off the come-from-behind effort with a two-run shot in the bottom of the 10th.
Lexi DiEmmanuele stole three bases and the Eagles poured on five runs in the first two innings, which held up for a midweek win over Massachusetts Lowell on Tuesday night.
BC faltered in the late innings the first two games, then were run-ruled in the weekend finale against Louisville, suffering a disappointing series sweep to a Cardinals team that had dropped five of seven.
After a disappointing outing on Friday, Allyson Frei responded by allowing just two earned runs over six innings, while Lexi DiEmmanuele did her part in the lineup en route to a series-equalizing win over the Irish.
The Eagles vaunted duo of Allyson Frei and Jessica Dreswick struggled in the circle, each allowing four runs in a disappointing start to a weekend series against ACC foe Notre Dame.
