Fort Wayne, Ind. – Notre Dame scored three goals in the second half to lift the Irish to a 3-0 shutout of Michigan in its second of two exhibition games at the IPFW Tournament over the weekend. Coach Bobby Clark’s squad did not allow a goal in the two games as the Irish defeated IPFW 5-0 on Saturday night.
For the second straight game, Notre Dame was paced by a balanced scoring attack. After a scoreless first half, junior forward Erich Braun (Frankfurt, Germany) got the Irish on the scoreboard with an empty net goal off an assist from sophomore Greg Martin (Plano, Tex..) at the 52:05 mark. Brian Jarvis (Pomona, Calif.) tallied the second goal when he headed in Filippo Chillemi’s (Roswell, Ga..) assist with just over 15 minutes left in the contest. Devon Prescod (Marietta, Ga.) added the third Irish goal at the 84:57 mark.
Braun and Jarvis were the two multiple-goal scorers over the weekend as they both tallied a score in each contest, while Chillemi finished with a goal and an assist in the two games.
Junior Greg Tait (Fayettville, N.Y.) played all 60 minutes in goal and registered six saves. Notre Dame outshot the Wolverines 15-14, but Michigan owned a 5-3 advantage in corner kicks.
With its two exhibition game complete, the Irish can now concentrate on preparing for the season opener on Sat., Sept. 1 at 7:00 p.m. when they entertain BIG EAST rival Villanova at Alumni Field.
