BURLINGTON, Iowa — Having played at home only once in the past three weeks and coming off six consecutive road games, the Quincy Notre Dame girls soccer team finally will return to Advance Physical Therapy Field next week.

Maybe some good mojo will follow.

The Raiders ended their road journey Thursday with a 4-1 victory against Burlington Notre Dame, scoring three second-half goals to venture home with a 13-6-1 record.

Lia Quintero gave the Raiders the lead in the 25th minute, scoring off an Avery Keck assist. Then came a three-goal barrage in a six-minute span of the second half to give the Raiders some breathing room.

Lilly Schuette scored off a Makayla Patton assist in the 55th minute, driving a shot from 18 yards out under the crossbar. Eva Dickerman scored an unassisted goal two minutes later when she cleaned up a corner kick, and Schuette capped the scoring with an unassisted goal in the upper corner of the net in the 61st minute.

The Raiders piled up 35 shots and six corner kicks and made the Nikes keeper make 21 saves. 

QND will close the regular season with three home games next week — Monday against Springfield, Wednesday against Jacksonville and Thursday against Quincy High School.
