NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Junior forward Ryan Turner tallied the game's lone goal 11:14 into the second half to lift the Notre Dame men's soccer team to a 1-0 win over Eastern Illinois. The Irish, now 4-2-2 on the season, recorded its second straight shutout and third in the last five outings.

Turner's game-winning goal, his fifth of the season, came from four yards out after senior forward Scott Wells fed him the ball from the right corner of the penalty box. The goal came at the 61:14 mark of the contest.

The first half was somewhat of a defensive battle and was evenly contested as the Irish held a slim 6-5 shot advantage, but owned a 7-2 margin in corner kicks. Both goalies played extremely well in goal in both halves as Notre Dame's Greg Velho and Eastern Illinois' Donald Sheehan recorded three saves each in the first 45 minutes of the contest. Velho, in posting his fourth complete shutout of the season, finished the game with six saves, while Sheehan had seven.

Notre Dame controlled the tempo of the game in the second half and allowed the Panthers just three shots. The Irish finished the game with a 13-8 shot advantage.

The shutout was the second in three games at Alumni Field for the Irish. With the loss, Eastern Illinois falls to 0-8.
