Fighting Irish Athletics | November 11, 2015
A 60th minute goal from freshman Thomas Ueland powered the University of Notre Dame men's soccer team to a 1-0 win over No. 1 Wake Forest in the semifinal round of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Championship on Wednesday night before 5,009 fans at Spry Stadium.
No. 9 Notre Dame (11-3-5) advances to the ACC Championship match on Sunday at 1 p.m. (ET). The Irish welcome Syracuse in the ACC title game clash, who downed Clemson 2-0 on Wednesday night.
Wednesday's triumph for the Irish was their first victory over a national No. 1 team since Notre Dame downed top ranked UCLA 2-1 in overtime on Aug. 31, 2007 in Bloomington, Indiana. The crowd in excess of 5,000 fans was the largest to ever see a Wake Forest postseason soccer match.
