Irish settle for another tie
[NOTRE DAME-NORTHWESTERN: Men] No. 2 Notre Dame had to settle for its fifth tie of the season as the unbeaten Fighting Irish saw their 1-0 halftime lead disappear
less than five minutes into the second half and wound up in a 1-1 draw against No. 13 Northwestern on Tuesday evening.
Neither team produced a solid scoring chance until the 37th minute
when Irish left back Max Lachowecki scored his second goal of the season on a cross from midfielder Evan Panken.
“We started slowly, but we actually got a goal during that period,” Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark said. “Max is always scrambling
in to get goals. Both of our fullbacks are wing fullbacks and in the system that we play they both have a license to get forward and get into attacking position.”
equalized in the 50th minute when midfielder Cole Missimo weaved past three Irish defenders in the penalty box and placed his shot dead center into the back of
Notre Dame (7-0-5) outshot Northwestern 14-2 in the second half and 22-6 for the match. Harrison Shipp nearly curled a shot into
the far post from 20 yards out in the 56th minute and freshman midfielder Brandon Aubrey just missed on two headers off set pieces.
