With three minutes left on the clock, tensions ran high as the Michigan women’s soccer struggled to clear the ball. Seconds later, the Fighting Irish buried a cross and scored the game-winner, leaving the stadium awestruck (0-1).
Up to that point, goalkeeper Hillary Beall’s two saves characterized the game. She skillfully blocked each of Notre Dame’s shots, even tipping one just above the net. Supported by a strong back line, Beall led the Wolverines into halftime tied 0-0 — still in the game despite a slow offense.
