YEAH BLAZERS!!! From UAB website (uabsports.com): Monteiro Lifts Blazers to Double Overtime Victory Over No. 15 Notre Dame Senior scores game-winning goal in 105th minute SOUTH BEND, Ind. ---- Senior forward Jerson Monteiro’s goal five minutes into the second overtime lifted the UAB men’s soccer team to a 1-0 upset over No. 15 Notre Dame in the opening round of the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament. The win marked the sixth consecutive season the Blazers have opened the campaign with a win or tie (4-0-2), and improved the team to 11-2-2 in season openers during head coach Mike Getman’s 15 years at the helm. “Notre Dame is a quality opponent and we are very pleased with this result,” Getman said. “They had a lot of possession and a lot more shots, but we were able to fight off their chances and took advantage of our opportunities and got the result we wanted. “We worked very hard and defended well,” Getman continued. “This was an exciting game against a very good team and it was a big win for our guys.” The goal occurred in the 105th minute when midfielder Two-Boys Gumede sent a cross off a free kick, which found the head of Monteiro. The Preseason All-Conference standout was then able to put the ball into the right side of the net, beating Irish goalkeeper Chris Cahill from six-yards out. UAB senior goalkeeper Jeremy Drake was outstanding in his first start since his freshman season. The Birmingham, Ala., native held one of the top scoring teams in the Big East last season without a goal for over 104 minutes, making eight saves on the night. He was aided by an experienced Blazer defense that helped preserve the shutout. “I thought Jeremy played a great game,” Getman said. “He made two outstanding saves and had eight for the game. Our entire defense played strong and helped earn this win for us.” UAB will next battle for the Mike Berticelli crown against seven-time national champions and 12th-ranked Indiana, which beat No. 8 Creighton, 1-0, in the Tournament’s opening round. The Blazers and Hoosiers will meet on Sunday, Aug. 27, at 11:30 a.m. The contests can be followed live on Gametracker, by logging onto UAB's official athletic website, uabsports.com, and clicking on the men's soccer schedule.
