Notre Dame Men's Soccer | Nov. 5, 2013 | UND.com
On the day the Notre Dame men's soccer team reclaimed the top spot in the national polls, the Fighting Irish lived up to the ranking with a 2-0 victory at No. 18 Michigan State on Tuesday afternoon at DeMartin Stadium. Goals from forwards Harrison Shipp and Vince Cicciarelli just 37 seconds apart in the second half propelled the Irish to their 10th victory of the season.
The scoring surge began in the 60th minute when midfielder Robby Gallegos played the ball to Shipp, who tucked his shot into the far post from the top of the penalty box for his team-best seventh goal of the season. Cicciarelli's attempt came from eight yards out on the left side of the penalty box and he sailed it past Spartan goalkeeper Zach Bennett. Leon Brown and Patrick Hodan assisted on the goal, which was the fourth of the season for Cicciarelli.
