South Bend, Ind. – The University of Pittsburgh men’s soccer team dropped a narrow 2-0 contest to No. 1 Notre Dame (11-1-5, 7-3-1 ACC) this evening at Alumni Stadium.
Dan Lynd led the Panthers in the cage making 10 saves in the losing effort.
With the Irish looking to get on the board first, Lynd held his own and kept the home squad off the board early with several key saves. The Panthers then registered their best chance of the match in the 34th minute when Romeo Charron set a shot towards the near post that was barley tipped away by a diving Irish keeper.
Notre Dame was able to counter following the Charron attempt and eventually drew a call in the box to force a penalty kick which got the Irish on the board in the 38th minute, a lead they would take into halftime.
In the second half, Pitt had a pair of chances to even the match within the first 20 minutes but Michael Tuohy and Chris Davis sent a pair of shots just wide of goal in the 60th and 63rd minutes respectively.
The Irish were able to put the game out of reach in the 81st minute when they added the final goal of the match to secure the 2-0 win.
The Panthers end their 2013 campaign with a 1-11-4 (0-9-2 ACC) record.
