On the day the Notre Dame men’s soccer team reclaimed the top spot in the national polls, the Irish registered a 2-0 victory Tuesday at No. 18 Michigan State.

Goals from forwards Harrison Shipp and Vince Cicciarelli just 37 seconds apart propelled the Irish to their 10th victory.

Senior goalkeeper Patrick Wall made five saves to notch his sixth shutout this season.

It was the second road win in four days over a ranked opponent for Notre Dame, which beat No. 12 Wake Forest 3-1 on Saturday in Winston-Salem, N.C. Notre Dame is 6-0-1 this season in true road matches. The victory also put the Irish at the 10-win plateau for the 12th time in 13 seasons under Clark.
