NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Senior forward Lauren Bohaboy (Mission Viejo, Calif./Santa Margarita) scored two goals and sophomore midfielder Morgan Andrews (Milford, N.H./Milford) dished out two assists as No. 16/11 Notre Dame opened its 2014 home schedule on a winning note with a 3-0 victory over Oakland on Sunday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.

Freshman forward Kaitlin Klawunder (Coto de Caza, Calif./Santa Margarita) got the Fighting Irish (2-0) on the board in the 27th minute, slotting home an empty-net shot from close range after Andrews' initial drive hit the crossbar. Bohaboy then scored twice in a span of less than 12 minutes midway through the second half to secure the Notre Dame win.

Sophomore goalkeeper Kaela Little (Tulsa, Okla./Bishop Kelley) did not have to make a save in collecting her first shutout of the season. Notre Dame outshot Oakland, 27-2, including a 12-0 edge in shots on goal, and also collected a 6-1 advantage on corner kicks. OU goalkeepers Alison Holland (two saves) and Stephanie Bukovec (six saves) split time in the Grizzlies' net, and the visitors were credited with a team save as well.

The Fighting Irish return to action at 7:30 p.m. (ET) Friday at Alumni Stadium, playing host to No. 17 Texas Tech in the nightcap on the opening day of the Notre Dame Invitational. USC will take on Iowa State in the tournament opener at 5 p.m. (ET), also at Alumni Stadium.
