[NOTRE DAME-MARYLAND: Men] Patrick Mullins, the 2012 Soccer America Player of the Year, scored from 15 yards in the 72nd minute to earn No. 7 Maryland a 1-1 tie with No. 2 Notre Dame in their ACC showdown Tuesday night in South Bend.

Notre Dame had been stymied by freshman keeper Zach Steffen until Vince Cicciarelli put the Fighting Irish on the board in the 59th minute.

Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said he was satisfied with the draw, the fourth of the season for both teams.

“Notre Dame was the better team in first half," he said, "and had a lot of the possession and Zack came up with a couple of key save. After some adjustments at halftime, I thought we came out with a lot of urgency, became more dangerous and rightfully earned the goal."


Notre Dame coach Bobby Clarke couldn't complain with the result, either.

“I felt very happy with our performance because I think we dominated long periods of the game,” he said. “Having said that, I always felt like Maryland was dangerous. It was a seesaw game and it could have gone either way. I enjoy playing Maryland because they are a well-prepared team and a very good team."

Maryland (5-2-4 overall), which is unbeaten in its last seven games, remained tied for first in the ACC with No. 18 Wake Forest at 4-0-2.  Notre Dame is 3-0-3 in the ACC and 6-0-4 overall.

-- The Demon Deacons tied N.C. State, 2-2. Sean Okoli scored both goals for Wake Forest (6-2-3), which is unbeaten in its last six games.

-- No. 20 Virginia had to settle for a 0-0 tie with Duke. The Cavs are unbeaten in their last seven matches.
