[COLLEGE MEN: Midweek]Notre Dame lived up to its first ever No. 1 ranking in the Soccer America Men's Top 25 with a 3-0 win over Michigan Tuesday at Alumni Stadium.

Harrison Shipp put the Fighting Irish ahead in the fourth minute when he dribbled around the Wolverine defense and scored into the lower left corner of the goal from 10 yards for his first goal of the season.
 
Sophomore Evan Panken added his second goal of the campaign in the 25th minute, and Leon Brownchipped in with an insurance goal, his team-leading fourth goal of the season, in the 82nd minute.
 
“It was a funny game because we got goals and made some chances,” Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark said, “but I thought that was perhaps our poorest playing display of the year so far. You have to give Michigan credit for that. They kept in the game even though they lost goals. We were a little disappointed because we know when we play well.”

The shutout extended Notre Dame's scoreless streak to 272 minutes.
 
“It puts a big target on your back because everybody is always excited to play the No. 1 team,” Clark said about the team’s No. 1 ranking. “If we’re going to be good, which I think we can be, we have to handle that. That’s part of growing as a team.”

Alex Halis' fourth goal of the season in the 24th minute was all Syracuse needed to knock off No. 7 Connecticut, 1-0. Alex Bono made five saves in goal, but he key was the work of the Syracuse backline -- Oyvind Alseth, Jordan Murrell, Chris Makowski, Brandon Albertand Trevor Alexander -- that limited the Huskies to three shots in the second half.

“In the last couple of years, we haven’t had this type of win against an opponent like UConn,” said SU coach Ian McIntyre. “We talked before the game that we’re going to win one of these games. It was important to talk about not just playing games, but winning games. Tonight, we were very disciplined and we worked hard. To limit an offense like UConn’s to the chances it had tonight, it was a very good performance.”

-- Daniel Lovitzscored on on assists by Caue Da Silva and Matt Wescoe just 29 seconds into the second half to give unbeaten Elon (5-0-1) a 1-0 win over No. 13 Wake Forest 1-0 at Rudd Field on Tuesday evening.

HEELS ESCAPE BUIES CREEK WITH WIN. Swede Raby George's shot was deflected by Campbell defender Eduardo Rodriguez into the goal to give No. 2 North Carolina a 1-0 overtime win over the Camels.

The win was the first for UNC in its last three trips to the Eakes Complex, following losses in 2006 and 2008 while ranked in the nation's top 10.

UNBEATEN AND UNTIED.No. 4 Clemson and UMBC both improved to 6-0-0 with wins on Tuesday.

The Tigers beat UNC Greensboro, 2-0, on goals by Thomas McNamara and Manolo Sanchez. UNCG had a chance to even the score in the second half but Clemson defender Phanuel Kavita made a diving clearance on a shot by David Reittinger with Clemson keeper Andrew Tarbell beaten.

Jordan Becker's goal in the 102nd minute -- his third career goal and third game-winning goal -- gave UMBC a 3-2 over Navy. UMBC, the nation's leader in goals per game, got goals from Gaeton Caltabiano and Marquez Fernandez to erase an early deficit, but Dave Arnold's goal in the 54th minute tied the score.
