Late Goals Send #2 Notre Dame Past Tulsa, 2-0
Sept. 2, 2000
Tulsa, Oklahoma - The Tulsa women's soccer team turned back 23 shot attempts and held second-ranked Notre Dame, the 1999 National Runner-up, scoreless for the first 69 minutes before giving up two late goals and falling 2-0 to the Irish at Alumni Field in South Bend, Ind.
Tulsa (2-1-0) attempted just two shots-on-goals the entire game, while giving up 35 total shots to Notre Dame (2-0-0). TU freshman goalkeeper Pam Devore recorded another solid outing in goal as she collected 11 saves, just four shy of the school's single-game record.
But it was 2000 Soccer Buzz Preseason National Player of the Year candidate Anne Makinen who finally broke the ice at the 68:17 minute mark. Makinen, a three-time All-American midfielder, drilled a 15-yard shot in to the left corner of the net to give Notre Dame a 1-0 lead.
A little over 12 minutes later, Makinen recorded her second goal of the night when she found the back of the net on a 20-yard blast from the right wing.
