The Notre Dame men’s soccer team and head coach Bobby Clark can now call themselves “national champions” after defeating Maryland 2-1 on Sunday afternoon at PPL Park in Philadelphia in the NCAA College Cup Championship.

On the back of goals from Leon Brown and Andrew O’Malley, assists from Nick Besler and MAC-Hermann Trophy finalist Harrison Shipp and a great effort on the backline by Grant Van De Casteele and the rest of the Irish, Notre Dame men’s soccer has now captured their first national title and the 28th overall for Notre Dame athletics.

As we previously compiled for the College Cup semifinal match vs New Mexico, here is a recap of the game in video, text and tweet form. Enjoy!
