Irish sophomore attacker Rachel Sexton, 5, carries the ball during Notre Dame’s 19-7 home win over Michigan in exhibition play Feb. 8.

The Irish (6-3, 1-3 ACC) are coming off a 16-10 loss to Maryland on Saturday but have yet to lose to a opponent from outside the ACC this season. Behind leading scorers freshman midfielder Cortney Fortunato and sophomore attacker Rachel Sexton, Notre Dame has won four of its last five contests. Fortunato leads the Irish with 24 goals on the season, while junior midfielder Caitlin Gargan’s eight assists also pace the squad.

Meanwhile, the Golden Eagles (3-4) come to South Bend off a 15-6 loss against Harvard on Saturday, despite two goals from sophomore attacker Claire Costanza. Constanza and leading scorer freshman attacker Amanda Bochiak, who has a total of 18 points on the season, will be taking aim at first-year Irish starter junior Allie Murray. Meanwhile, the Golden Eagles start sophomore Sarah Priem in goal, where she has a .320 save percentage this season.

The Irish and Marquette will face off at 6 p.m. at Arlotta Stadium, with both teams attempting to get back in the win column.
