Evanston, Ill.-- The Notre Dame men's soccer team was forced to play overtime for the second straight game and third in six outings in 1997 as the Irish tied Northwestern 2-2 on the road.

Bill Savarino had the game-tying goal for the visitors, now 2-2-2 on the season, at the 232:38 when he scored from just outside the penalty off assists from Joe Gallo and Ryan Turner. The goal came just 14 seconds after Northwestern's Andy McDermott had given the Wildcats a 2-1 lead when he scored off a Patrick Eggen pass.

Notre Dame got on the scoreboard first when Turner took a Savarino pass and drilled it from 20 yards out to put the Irish up 1-0 3:18 into the contest. Dave Mooradian tied the score at the 13:57 mark when he shot the ball from five yards out off a Brandon Swalve pass that went past two Irish defenders.

Late in the first half, it appeared that Notre Dame's Ben Bocklage had given the Irish a 3-2 lead, but his header with less than seven minutes left in the half was called back because of an offsides call.

Northwestern outshot the Irish 6-2 in the first half, but managed just one shot in the second half and one shot in the two sudden death overtime sessions. Notre Dame proved to be very aggressive in the second half and attempted two shots, including three in overtime.

Northwestern goalkeeper Matt Keeler made six saves in the net, while Greg Velho had three for the Irish.

The Irish return to action on Saturday, September 18 when they travel to Morgantown, W. Va. to face the Mountaineers in a BIG EAST match at 7:00 p.m.
