Fighting Irish Athletics | September 30, 2015
Three second half goals, including two in the final 12 minutes, led the University of Notre Dame men's soccer team to a 4-2 win over Marquette on Tuesday in nonconference play at Alumni Stadium.
No. 7/4 Notre Dame (7-2-1) outshot Marquette 17-14 during the contest, including a slight 8-7 edge in shots on goal. The Irish managed six corner kicks to the three of the Golden Eagles (3-3-2), winning their third straight match in the past seven days since shutting out Michigan State 4-0 on Sept. 22.
"That was always going to be a very tough game, Marquette is a very good team," Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark said. "They are a very good attacking team. They pressured us well and got the early goal. The big thing for us today was, twice, coming back from a goal down. It's great when you know that your team can fight back from going behind, come back eventually to win it fairly comfortably in the end.
