[NOTRE DAME-INDIANA]Indiana will make its first trip to the NCAA quarterfinals since 2008 thanks to a 2-1 double overtime win onEriq Zavaleta's goal at No. 1 Notre Dame Sunday afternoon.
 
The Hoosiers improve to 13-5-3 on the season and will face the winner of North Carolina with a trip to the College Cup on the line.
 
“What a win for this program,” said IU coach Todd Yeagley, who took over in 2009. “The team played a complete 90 (minutes) and we took it to a very good Notre Dame team. They were a fantastic team this year and we knew we had to be at our best. Today our discipline and the way we executed our plan made the difference.”

The win reversed a 1-0 loss to the Irish during the regular season.

Neither team produced many quality chances in the first half, and the match was scoreless at the half. The second half was a different story.

Notre Dame took a 1-0 lead in the 54th minute when Harrison Shipp found Kyle Richard alone at the top of the 18, and Richard scored with a shot to the lower right corner.
 
The lead didn’t last long as Nikita Kotlovscored his eighth goal of the year -- and fourth in two NCAA Tournament games -- 56 seconds later.

Less than two minutes into the second overtime period, Zavaleta ended the match with his 17th goal of the year. Kotlov flicked a ball on to Zavaleta, who headed it home his sixth game-winning goal of the season.
 
“I haven’t scored a tournament goal with this team and there isn’t a better moment to have it,” Zavaleta said. “I am so proud of this team. This is the best I have seen this team play in a long time.”

“As I’ve said before, anytime Notre Dame plays Indiana it’s going to be a great game and it was a great game today,” said Notre Dame head Bobby Clark. “It ebbed and flowed. We had periods where we played very well and they had periods where they played very well. I thought they brought a lot of intensity. They opened the game well. We defended really well during that time and didn’t give up many chances.”
Nov. 25 in South Bend, Ind.
Notre Dame 1 Indiana 2.Goals: Richard (Shipp) 54; Kotlov (Corrado) 55, Zavaleta (Kotlov) 102.
