NOTRE DAME, Ind. - No. 2 Notre Dame scored twice in the final three minutes of the match to come away with a 3-1 victory over Duke in Atlantic Coast Conference men's soccer action on Friday evening in front of a capacity crowd of 3,007 at Alumni Stadium.

It was better late than never for the Fighting Irish as sophomore midfielder Patrick Hodan put the team up 2-1 in the 88th minute when he placed the ball into the upper left corner from 22 yards away for his first goal of the season.

With just under a minute left in regulation Harrison Shipp was taken down in the box and he converted a penalty kick to ice the game away. The tally extended the senior forward's career-best point streak to five games. Shipp has a team-high nine points on three goals and three assists this season.

"Our guys know they played well in the second half and I was so happy they did because we had a great crowd here tonight," Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark said. "It was a great atmosphere and the students were phenomenal. That was the best I've ever heard students in my 13 years here at Notre Dame and what a difference that makes for the players because it keeps them going right through to the end."

Notre Dame (4-0-3, 2-0-2) grabbed a 1-0 lead less than a minute into the second half when right back Luke Mishu sent a perfect cross over to left back Max Lachowecki and he headed it into the right side of the netting for his first goal of the season.

"At halftime the coaches mentioned that our right back (Mishu) had been getting up into the attack and they told me to try the same thing," Lachowecki, a junior, said. "(Luke) Mishu and I practice crossing all the time. He served it in to me and Evan Panken was stranding right in front of me and I told him to leave it and I scored."

Duke (4-3-2, 0-3-1) answered back in the 51st minute when Jack Coleman tucked a cross into the upper right corner of the goal from distance.

Notre Dame outshot Duke 17-6, including 7-0 in the opening half, and the Irish held a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks. The best chance for either team in the first half came off the foot of Shipp, who hit the crossbar from 20 yards out in the 21st minute. Shipp and Hodan both had a game-best four shots, while Hodan put two of his on frame.

"Patrick (Hodan) is a goal scorer and it was great to see him finally get a goal," Clark said. "He's just been missing, but hopefully that's the start of many for him.

"Max (Lachowecki) had a terrific game tonight. He worked so hard and always looked dangerous and so did Luke (Mishu). Our two fullbacks were terrific tonight."

Senior goalkeeper Patrick Wall made three saves for the Irish, while his counterpart Alex Long also had three stops for the Blue Devils.

The Fighting Irish are back in action Wednesday evening when they play host to in-state rival and defending national champion Indiana. The match is slated for 7 p.m. (ET) at Alumni Stadium and it will be broadcast live and for free on
