ND outlasts Jackson in long soccer game

Thursday, October 4, 2012

It took soccer rivals Notre Dame and Jackson a long time to decide their matchup Wednesday night.

The game was scoreless after 80 minutes of regulation and also after two 10-minute overtime periods.

Both teams converted four of five shots during the first round of penalty kicks, with each goalkeeper making a save.

Notre Dame keeper Thomas Himmelberg stopped Jackson's first shot in the second round of penalty kicks and Ben Wedemeier converted his, allowing the visiting Bulldogs to escape with what is officially a 1-0 victory.

The Bulldogs improved to 11-3 while the Indians fell to 5-7-1.

"It was a typical Jackson-Notre Dame game," Bulldogs coach Brad Wittenborn said. "Both teams played pretty well. I can't find a lot of fault with our play. Their keeper made a really good save in overtime."
