Freshman Sarah Griffith scored early in the second half and the Boilermakers' goalkeepers combined for eight saves, leading the way as Purdue women's soccer defeated No. 18 Notre Dame 2-0 in preseason exhibition action Wednesday. Maddy Williams assisted on Griffith's goal in the 53rd minute and sealed the win with a goal of her own at the top of the 86th minute. Williams has returned to the lineup this fall after missing all of 2016 due to a knee injury. Going back to the fall of 2016, she has now scored five goals in the last three preseason games in which she has suited up. Griffith was one of six freshmen to start the game for the Boilermakers. Classmate Kylie Hase assisted on Williams' goal and played all 90 minutes. First-year center back Sarah Clark also went the distance in the shutout. Freshman goalkeeper Katie Luce earned the start and finished with three saves in 45 minutes. Senior Erika Yohn took over in goal to begin the second half and finished off the shutout, recording five saves. She preserved the clean sheet with back-to-back saves on shots by two different UND players just seconds apart in the 87th minute.
