Notre Dame Athletics | November 19, 2020
Notre Dame’s fall portion of the schedule came to a close on Wednesday evening in the ACC Championship semifinals, falling to No. 1 Pitt by a score of 3-1 at Dail Soccer Field on NC State’s campus.
The final score was not indicative of the performance, as Notre Dame recorded more shots (18-13), shots on target (8-4) and corners (10-0) than the Panthers.
The lone Notre Dame goal came from junior Jack Lynn, who scored a penalty late in the second half.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Irish were unfortunate in the first half, as they trailed 3-0 at the half despite being even in shots on frame at 4-4. Pitt scored the opener in the 21st minute off a perfectly placed free kick and then added a 34th minute goal after scoring on a near-post run from a cross.
The Panthers added a goal right before the half in the 44th minute, scoring off a shot from distance that took a major deflection, leaving the Irish keeper with no chance to make the save.
