SOUTH BEND, In. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- It's been nearly six years since the Cavaliers left Arlotta Stadium with a victory, but Saturday, they were able to enjoy that feeling once again as the upset No. 4 Notre Dame 12-10 to move to 7-1 on the season. 

The Cavalier attack was led by Mackenzie Hoeg who finished with four goals on the afternoon and Morgan Schwab who finished with two goals and four assists. Schwab's four assists helped her break the program's 38-year old career assist record previously held by Lindsey Sheehan. 

Mel Josephson was also solid behind net coming away with nine saves. 

Hoeg opened the scoring 55 seconds into the game with her tenth goal of the season, but the Fighting Irish quickly followed that up with a goal from Kasey Choma. Notre Dame would take a 3-2 lead with 3:36 left in the first quarter, but the Hoos finished the quarter strong with goals from Schwab Kate Miller. 

It remained a back and forth game through the early portion of the second quarter, but a 3-0 scoring run from he Cavaliers to make it a 9-6 game gave the the team some breathing room. Notre Dame did manage to make it an 11-10 game early in the fourth quarter, but the Virginia defense held strong down the stretch to pick up the victory. 

The Cavaliers return home next Saturday for the start of a three-game homestand against Pitt at noon.
