ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Colin McAtee scored three goals, including the match-winner in the 83rd minute, as Michigan knocked off No. 6 Notre Dame by a 3-2 count Tuesday night at U-M Soccer Stadium. The win marked the Wolverines' first victory against a top-10 opponent at home in the past two seasons and the second win against the defending NCAA champion Fighting Irish in program history.

McAtee broke a 2-2 tie in the 83rd minute with his third tally of the game, with Tyler Anderson getting the assist on the game-winner.

McAtee stole the show, notching his first tally at the 20:27 mark on a header coming off a corner from the foot of Anderson to give the Wolverines (3-5-2) a 1-0 lead.

It was McAtee who struck again for the Wolverines less than a minute later at 21:04 on a link-up play between Tyler Arnone and William Mellors-Blair. Following a touch-and-go pass from Mellors-Blair, Arnone sent in a left-to-right low cross at the top of the 18, and McAtee buried his attempt to give Michigan the 2-0 advantage.

The Fighting Irish (5-3-2) cut the Wolverine advantage in half in the 64th minute as Jon Gallagher and Jeffrey Farina linked up in the Notre Dame finishing third and Farina put home a left-footed strike from 14 yards out.

Riding the momentum of their first tally, the Fighting Irish found the equalizer four minutes later. Patrick Hodan shook a pair of Wolverine defenders at the top-right portion of the box and tucked home a lefty bender from 20 yards out to knot the match at 2-2.

Michigan had a season-high 21 corner kicks in the match.
