[LOUISVILLE-NOTRE DAME] Louisville knocked No. 2 Notre Dame from the ranks of the unbeaten and untied with a 2-1 win in the Big East opener Saturday night for both teams at Cardinal Park. Notre Dame's loss left only four teams in the country with perfect records: No. 10 Marquette (8-0-0), No. 25 Cornell (7-0-0), No. 25 UC Riverside (7-0-0) and High Point (8-0-0).

The Cardinals, who improved to 5-3-0 on the year, got goals from Dylan Mares on a header in the 33rd minute and Andrew Farrell on a penalty kick in the 76th minute.

Farrell made amends for his foul that led to a Notre Dame penalty converted by Ryan Finley for the equalizer in the 63rd minute.

“We had a lapse in concentration on their first goal and then got overanxious and committed a penalty that led to their second goal,” said Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark. “Both penalty kicks tonight were deserved.”

Sept. 22 in Louisville, Ky.
Louisville 2 Notre Dame 1. Goals: Mares 34; Farrell (pen.) 76; Finley (pen.) 63.
Louisville -- Mauro, Cochrane, Farrell, Vitalis, Granger, Ramirez, Keller, DelPiccolo, Foxhoven, Obbey, Hairston. Subs: Smith, Tufty, Mares.
Notre Dame -- Walsh, Lachowecki, Priede, O'Malley, Van de Casteele, Mishu, O'Leary, Richard, Besler, Brown, Powers. Subs: Novak, Lesch, Shipp, Finley, Hodan.
Att.: 2,142.
