GREENSBORO, N.C. ( – Notre Dame’s Cortney Fortunato has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Week, while Fighting Irish teammate Liz O’Sullivan and Duke’s Isabelle Montange share ACC Defensive Player of the Week honors. 

Fortunato scored a game-high six goals and added a pair of assists for eight points in Notre Dame’s win at No. 4 Virginia, while recording her milestone 40th goal of the year in the game and breaking the 50-point plateau on the season. The win over UVa was Notre Dame’s highest-ever win on an opponent’s regular home field, its most lopsided win over a ranked team since 2004 and first-ever win over the Cavaliers.

O’Sullivan made a career-high 11 saves in Notre Dame’s win at Virginia. She helped hold UVa scoreless for the first 42:03 before finally allowing a goal. The sophomore goalie saved all six Virginia shots on goal in the first half as the Irish built a 5-0 lead by halftime. 

Montagne matched up with the Boston College’s leading scorer, Covie Stanwick, and held her without a goal in a 13‐8 Duke win. The sophomore defender was part of a Blue Devil defense that held Boston College scoreless for the first 19 minutes of the contest and again for a nearly 20‐minute stretch late in the second half. Montagne and the defensive unit also held a BC team averaging 14.42 goals per game entering the contest to just the eight tallies. She also tallied two ground balls and one caused turnover in the victory.
