Notre Dame led 14-12 after the first quarter, Trenton getting a lift from Rutgers football commit Sam Gadie went ahead 28-25 at halftime and maintained control throughout the third quarter. Notre Dame crept within two points in the final four minutes of regulation, but the Tornadoes ability to score quickly was too much for ND down the stretch.
