The Florida Gators' women's soccer team fell 2-0 to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in a third-round NCAA regional contest on Sunday in Gainesville.

Florida was a No. 2 seed in the tournament and had been riding a seven-game winning streak prior to the loss. The Gators won both the SEC regular season and tournament titles, and they finished the year 19-5-1.

Florida controlled much of the game, owning a 14-1 advantage in corner kicks and getting several other big chances. However, the Gators never converted any of those opportunities.

Meanwhile, Notre Dame cashed in on their one corner attempt. Junior Rebecca Twining buried the first goal of the game after taking a beautiful corner from freshman Brittany Von Reuden. The Fighting Irish iced the game on sophomore Lauren Bohaboy's goal with 20 minutes left.

Notre Dame will take on the top-seeded Florida State Seminoles in the NCAA quarterfinals on Friday.
