Notre Dame Men's Soccer | Sept. 8, 2013 | Fighting Irish Digital Media and WatchND
Just when it appeared the Notre Dame men's soccer team might enter Atlantic Coast Conference play on the wrong end of the result with No. 1 North Carolina, senior forward Leon Brown deposited the equalizer in the 79th minute and the two teams ended deadlocked, 1-1, following two overtime periods Sunday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.
ACC could have stood for "another close chance" for the fourth-ranked Fighting Irish as they produced several good scoring opportunities in the second half, yet were unable to convert until Brown put home his third goal of the last two games. Harrison Shipp assisted on the score, which was the first goal allowed by North Carolina in three games this season. It also was redemption for Brown, who just missed high of the frame from six yards out in the 67th minute.
