Abby Ferlmann scored 10 points and made several key defensive plays in a 54-48 win over Richwoods Tuesday night.

Richwoods trailed by 18 points before cutting the lead to two, but Notre Dame held on for the big 54-48 win Tuesday night at Notre Dame.

Abby Ferlmann scored 10 points and Katie Schuler scored 12 for the Irish, who took sole possession of first place in the Mid-State 6 Conference and likely secured the No. 1 Regional seed.

Kristin Itschner made four of four free throws in the final minute for Notre Dame. Mariah Smith led Rochwoods with 20 points and eight rebounds. Elle Bielfeldt had a game-high 11 rebounds for Notre Dame.
