LECOCQ POWERS CHAMINADE PAST NOTRE DAME : CHAMINADE 4, NOTRE DAME 0.

Byline: Jim Inghram Daily News Staff Writer

The first 16 Notre Dame High batters Chaminade's Maureen LeCocq faced walked right back where they came from, half of them victims of strikeouts.

The 17th, Maresa Meskou, finally broke the string when she hit a popup that dropped just out the reach of shortstop Courtney Whale. It ended the perfect game, but LeCocq finished with another shutout, her fourth in the Mission League, to lift the Eagles to a 4-0 victory Wednesday at Chaminade Middle School.

LeCocq helped out on offense, too. She went 2 for 3 and scored two runs.

``We work on the short game a lot to try and open up the offense,'' Chaminade coach Steve Harrington said. ``Today it worked. We got some people on and took advantage of some of their miscues.''

The Eagles (10-7-1, 4-0) parlayed two hits, a sacrifice, two wild pitches, a stolen base, an error and two fielder's choices into three runs in the third.

It was more than enough for LeCocq (10-7).

``Usually, as soon as we get a run I feel comfortable,'' LeCocq said. ``I know that my defense is behind me and every pitch doesn't have to be perfect.''

Said Harrington: ``As soon as we get a couple of runs, Maureen takes care of the rest. When the kids come together like they did today we're a tough team to beat.''
