Notre Dame Men's Soccer | Aug. 26, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
NOTRE DAME, Ind. - On Notre Dame's 22nd shot of the evening senior forward Alex Priede delivered the game's lone goal as the seventh-ranked Fighting Irish bested Ohio State, 1-0, Monday evening in exhibition men's soccer action in front of 1,856 fans at a warm Alumni Stadium.
Notre Dame owned the stat sheet, outshooting Ohio State 25-6, including a 12-2 margin in shots on goal. The Irish also produced eight corner kicks compared to three for the Buckeyes. The Fighting Irish played most of their first unit for the first 60 minutes of the match, which was the exhibition finale for the squad.
The game was also a fundraiser for Grassroot Soccer, an international non-governmental organization that uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire and mobilize communities against the spread of HIV. GRS has a special connection to the Notre Dame program as Dr. Tommy Clark, the eldest son of Irish head coach Bobby Clark, is the founder and CEO of the organization.
