*ST. LOUIS, Mo. – *The weather proved to be the victor Saturday evening
during the exhibition opener for the top-ranked Notre Dame men’s soccer
team. The Fighting Irish and Saint Louis were tied 0-0 at Robert R. Hermann
Stadium when the match was called in the 61st minute due to lightning in
the area.



Twenty-one different Fighting Irish players saw time as head coach Bobby
Clark sent in 10 subs to begin the second half.



*First half starters:* Brian Talcott (Jr./GK), Matt Habrowski (So./D), Max
Lachowecki (Sr./D), Andrew O'Malley (GS/D), Michael Shipp (Jr./D), Connor
Klekota (Jr./M), Danny Lojek (Jr./M), Oliver Harris (So./M), Evan Panken
(Jr./M), Leon Brown (GS/F), Jeffrey Farina (Fr./F).



*Second half starters:* Patrick Wall (GS/GK), Matt Habrowski (So./D),
Brandon Aubrey (So./D), Luke Mishu (Sr./D), Mark Mishu (So./D), Brendan
Lesch (Sr./M), Robby Gallegos (Sr./M), Blake Townes (Fr./M), Patrick Hodan
(Jr./M), Jon Gallagher (Fr./F), Vince Cicciarelli (Sr./F).



“I felt we did just okay tonight,” Clark said. “We didn’t control the game
enough and they (Saint Louis) did a better job than us at controlling the
tempo. It was a good wake-up call for us that this is a new season after
being national champions last year. Our guys aren’t complacent and they
know when they play well. We can get a lot better than how we looked
tonight.”



Talcott made three saves in the opening half for the Fighting Irish, while
Wall was not called upon to make a stop in his 15-plus minutes of action in
the second stanza. Saint Louis held a slim 3-2 edge in shots on goal.
Farina and Hodan had Notre Dame’s shots on frame. The Billikens earned six
corner kicks and the Fighting Irish attempted two.



“Jeffrey Farina created our best chance of the match and he was one-on-one
with the goalie who made the save,” Clark said. “We split up our
experienced players in both halves and I wish we could have played the
whole game especially for the guys who came on in the second half.”



Notre Dame will continue its exhibition slate Tuesday at Bradley. The
Fighting Irish will conclude their preseason schedule Aug. 25 with a home
match versus No. 21 Wisconsin before opening the regular season Aug. 29
against No. 12 Marquette at the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic in
Bloomington, Ind.
