Notre Dame Men's Soccer | Nov. 12, 2013 | Notre Dame Athletics
A magnificent set piece that resulted in a Patrick Hodan goal in the 59th minute made the Notre Dame men's soccer team's Atlantic Coast Conference Championship debut a successful one as the top-ranked Fighting Irish bested Duke, 1-0, in the quarterfinals on Tuesday evening at a frigid Alumni Stadium.
Notre Dame (12-1-5) will face No. 12 Virginia Friday in the league semifinals at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown, Md. The match is scheduled for either 5:30 p.m. (ET) or 8 p.m. and it will be broadcast on ESPN3. Virginia handed Notre Dame its only setback of the season, a 2-0 decision on Oct. 26 at Alumni Stadium.
