Soccer: The no. 7/4 women's team (7-1-0, 3-0 ACC) conquered ACC foe Syracuse, 1-0, this past weekend with the game's lone goal reaching the back of the net with just 3 seconds left on the game clock. Junior defender Sammy Scofield headed in a deflected free kick to secure the home victory. The Irish led the Orange in total shots (19-4), shots on goal (7-2), and corners (8-2).

They face Maryland at home on Friday (7:00 p.m. ET) and Pittsburgh on Sunday (1:00 p.m. ET). If you're on campus for the football game, stop by Alumni Stadium to cheer for women's soccer.

The no. 1 men's team (3-0-3, 1-0-2 ACC) wrecked the Michigan Wolverines with a 3-0 victory over the weekend. Senior Harrison Shipp scored on the first Notre Dame shot of the match. The Irish relied on goalkeeper Patrick Wall for 8 crucial saves and were fortunate to keep the Wolverines scoreless. They drew a 1-1 tie with Boston College on Monday in a game that saw both teams take just 3 shots on goal. The Irish did claim the advantage in total shots, 17-5, but couldn't capitalize, even playing a man up for the last 50 minutes of the game.


Saturday, the Irish battle Duke at home (7:30 p.m. ET). If you're around for Oklahoma, be sure to catch the evening's soccer match.
