NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Concordia Wisconsin's Allison McElwee put a shot in the back of the net early in Sunday afternoon's contest, but Saint Mary's answered back with a pair of goals less than eight minutes later and added another late in the game for a 3-1 non-conference victory.

THE BASICS
Final Score: Saint Mary's 3, Concordia Wisconsin 1
Location: Purcell Athletic Fields (Notre Dame, Ind.)

HOW IT HAPPENED

- However, the Belles' Rose Stackhouse tied the game at a goal apiece just over two minutes later and Lexi Trombly scored a marker just before the 115-minute mark to put the hosts ahead for good.
- Trombly added her second unassisted goal of the game in the 85th minute of a deflected free kick.
