  1. Off The Pitch And Into The Community

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:07 AM EDT

    If you want to get kids from the ages of seven to 10 excited about playing soccer, bring out the Notre Dame men’s soccer team— or at least that was the consensus of the girls on the U9 Jr. Irish team that I coach as they were joined by the Notre Dame men’s soccer team…

  2. A Season of Growth

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:11 PM EDT

    Losses can be difficult to deal with, especially if they are season-ending ones like the Irish’s 1-0 postseason loss to FSU. However, it helps to put things in perspective by looking back to the beginning of the season. The Irish have made tremendous strides since then. If you would have asked anyone how far the Irish would…

  3. Everything to Gain for the Irish

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Right now, the majority of college soccer players are done with their season. This means no more daily practices, endless traveling, or weekend games. In fact, they are probably headed home to visit their families for Thanksgiving. The Irish, on the other hand, are one of the select few teams still lucky enough to be…

  4. Two Wins Send Irish to Elite Eight

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    It was a great weekend for the Irish as they racked up two wins to propel their way into the Elite Eight. The team started out the weekend with a 2-1 win versus #3 seed Wake Forest. Once that game was under their belt, they prepared to take on second-seeded Florida. The Gators were an interesting opponent for…

  5. Over the First Hurdle

    Nov 15, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    It’s tournament time and never count anyone out! Especially the Irish. After a rocky start to the season, the Irish pulled together to go on a winning streak in the BIG EAST and earn a share of the conference title. All in all, the team has proven that it has what it takes to be successful…

  6. Halloween Fun for Irish Soccer

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    One of the downsides to playing a sport in college is that you sometimes have to miss out on fun events like Halloween. This year, instead of dressing up for Halloween, the Notre Dame women’s soccer team will be traveling to Connecticut as they prepare to take on Marquette in the BIG EAST semifinals. Luckily, the…

  7. Freshman Scores to Advance in BIG EAST Tournament

    Oct 30, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    The Irish advanced to the BiG EAST semifinals with a 1-0 win over Syracuse this weekend. The goal came late in the game with an open-netted shot from freshman forward Cari Roccaro after she beat the Syracuse goalkeeper. This was Rocarro’s fifth goal of the season – an impressive accomplishment, considering she didn’t join the team until mid-September after helping the…

  8. Gold Jerseys for Kicks Against Cancer

    Oct 8, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    The Irish were able to extend their unbeaten streak with a 2-2 tie versus Rutgers in their final home game of the regular season. Although the conditions were cold and rainy, the team still fought hard and was able to hold off a tough opponent. Both goals came in the first half from freshman forward Crystal Thomas.…

  9. Getting Back on Track

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    One thing I know about soccer is that a loss is not always a bad thing. Sometimes, a tough loss can be exactly the motivation a great team needs in order to reach its full potential. I can personally attest to this, as a member of the 2010 national championship Notre Dame women’s soccer team. Leading…

  10. Weekend Recap: West Coast Swing

    Sep 10, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    It was a tough weekend for the “Baby Irish” as they failed to bring home a win during their west coast swing. Notre Dame began the weekend facing off against the No. 19 Portland Pilots. Portland, historically one of the best women’s teams, presented a challenge for the Irish as they battled to a 1-1 draw.…

  11. Over a Decade of Honoring Mike Berticelli

    Sep 6, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Emotions are running deep as the No. 13 Notre Dame men’s soccer team faces off against Oregon State and fourth-ranked Akron in the 11th annual Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament this weekend. Standards are set especially high for the Irish, due to the nature of this tournament and the man in which it was named for (Mike Berticelli was head coach of the Irish…
