ANN ARBOR, Mich. – No. 16 Notre Dame (8-4-1) never trailed in a 2-1 victory over No. 18 Michigan (9-2-2) on Tuesday evening. The Irish have now recorded five wins over ranked opponents in the 2018 season.
Seniors Thomas Ueland and Sean MacLeod were the goal scorers for the Irish, each finding the back of the net for the fourth time this season. The Notre Dame defense turned in another industrious performance, holding the opposition to one or no goals for the 10th time in 13 outings this season.

The Irish did not wait line to get on the scoreboard, as the visitors took an early lead in the 10th minute. Notre Dame's Sean Dedrick sent a dangerous throw-in into the box, which Jack Lynn flicked on to Ueland who finished beautifully with his left foot on his first touch past the Michigan keeper to put the Irish on top 1-0.
After the goal the Wolverine attack put the Irish under pressure for the rest of the first half but the Irish defense held strong, shutting out Michigan in the opening 45 minutes to take a 1-0 lead into the halftime break.
Michigan leveled the match in the 57th minute, as Jack Hallahan unleashed a shot from the top of the box sending it into the bottom right corner of the goal to make the score 1-1.
After the Wolverine goal the Irish settled down and had a good spell of possession, putting the Michigan defense under duress. Aiden McFadden broke into the box, taking on and beating a Wolverine defender before being taken down by a Michigan center back to set up a penalty kick.
