MORNING BRIEFING: Notre Dame falls to Michigan
by Paul Kennedy, October 2nd, 2008 1:15PM



Michigan again showed why it is one of the most dangerous teams in the country as the unranked Wolverines defeated No. 14 Notre Dame, 3-1, Wednesday afternoon in a game played at Eastern Michigan University's Scicluna Field.

Star Perica Marosevic led Michigan with a goal and an assist. Mauro Fuzetti and Jake Stacy also scored for UM.

"All of their goals were good goals," added Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark. "They scored from far out on
their first shot of the game. They struck again after [Bright] Dike got the equalizer. But then they scored again against the run of play."

NO. 1 WAKE FOREST-ELON (3-0). Junior Zack Schilawski registered the fourth multi-goal game of his career and junior goalkeeper Akira Fitzgerald recorded his sixth shutout of the season as No. 1 Wake Forest improved to 9-0-0. Another junior, Cody Arnoux, also scored for Wake in a game that drew 1,633 fans.

NO. 7 CREIGHTON-CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE (1-0). Andrei Gotsmanov's penalty kick with five minutes left in double overtime lifted the Bluejays over Northridge. The goal was his team-leading fourth goal of the season. Despite the close match, Creighton coach Bob Warming was pleased. "I thought the second half was some of the best soccer we have played this year," he said after CU's first overtime match of the season.

UCLA-NO. 16 UC SANTA BARBARA (2-2). In a rematch of the 2006 national championship game, UCSB rallied to tie the match on Chris Pontius' eighth goal of the season. Freshman Luis Silva had put UCSB ahead, but goals by David Estrada and Maxwell Griffin gave UCLA the lead.

NO. 19 OHIO STATE- BOWLING GREEN (1-0). Andrew Magill scored the game-winning goal in the 21st minute for the Buckeyes, who are now 6-2-1 on the season.

NO. 25 UC IRVINE-NO. 20 UC DAVIS (1-1).  The Aggies took a 1-0 lead in the 18th minute on Paul Marcoux's goal, but UCI, playing with 10 men after David Sias' red card, tied the match in the 85th minute as sophomore Spencer Thompson scored on a 35-yard free kick. Lance Patterson was given a red card in the 106th minute, leaving UC Davis with 10 players.

NO. 22 LOYOLA (MD.)-PRINCETON (1-0). Sophomore midfielder Eddie Dines headed in the lone goal of the match with 14 minutes remaining in the contest to extend Loyola's unbeaten streak to 16 games.
