Notre Dame wins NCAA men's soccer title

Posted: Updated:

Andrew O'Malley and Leon Brown led Notre Dame to its first NCAA men's soccer title, scoring in the Fighting Irish's 2-1 victory over Maryland on Sunday at PPL Park.

Notre Dame finished the season 17-1-6 to give 68-year-old coach Bobby Clark his first title in 27 years of coaching at Dartmouth, Stanford and Notre Dame.

Patrick Mullins, the nation's leading scorer, scored for Maryland (17-4-5). The Terrapins were trying to win their fourth national championship and third under coach Sasho Cirovski.

Harrison Shipp, a finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy as the nation's best player, set up O'Malley's winning goal with a perfectly placed free kick in the 60th minute.

Brown tied it at 1 in the 40th minute.

Mullins, Maryland's own Hermann Trophy finalist, opened the scoring for the Terrapins in the 35th minute. He finished his college career with 47 goals, second in program history.
