Men's Soccer Downs DePaul in Exhibition

August 28, 1998

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The Notre Dame men's soccer team played its final tuneup before opening up the 1998 campaign as the Irish scored two second-half goals to defeat DePaul 3-1 at Alumni Field.

Ben Bocklage and Andrew Aris each tallied in the second half as the Irish came from behind to defeat the visiting Blue Demons.

DePaul jumped out to a 1-0 advantage when Demetrio Sanchez scored the contest's first goal off assists from Dan Dembiec and Joe Ahearn 18:37 into the game. Matt McNew tied the game less than three minutes later as when he headed in a David Cutler pass than was lofted from 30 yards out.

Bocklage put the Irish ahead for good at the 64:11 mark when he picked up a loose ball and drive if from 25 yards out into the left corner of the net. Aris' insurance goal game less than nine minutes later at 73:02 when he took a Scott Wells feed and put it into the net from just outside the penalty box.
