The Cal Poly men’s soccer team extended the No. 10 team in the country to double overtime before falling 2-1 to Notre Dame in the 101st minute of a tightly contested match Sunday at Alumni Stadium on the campus of Notre Dame.

Jeff Farina, who scored Notre Dame’s first goal in the eighth minute, took a pass on the right wing from Matt Habrowski and drilled his shot from 15 yards out inside the left post for the game winner just 51 seconds into the second 10-minute overtime period.

The loss dropped Cal Poly to 0-2, both matches against teams in the Top 10. The Mustangs fell 2-0 to No. 7 Indiana on Friday in the opening round of the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament.

Notre Dame is now 2-0 and claimed first place in its tournament by virtue of aggregate goals. The Irish, who beat San Diego on Friday, edged Indiana 4-3 on aggregate goals for the championship trophy. Both Notre Dame and Indiana finished 2-0 in the tournament and produced a plus-three goal differential.

With his pair of goals Sunday, Farina was named most outstanding offensive player of the tournament.

Mustang netminder Simon Boehme, who recorded 12 saves Sunday, was named most outstanding goalkeeper while Felicien Dumas of Notre Dame and Andrew Gutman of Indiana shared most outstanding defensive player honors.

In addition to the quartet of honorees, Cal Poly midfielder Christian Enriquez was named to the all-tournament team.

After Farina gave Notre Dame a 1-0 lead with a header at the left post, Cal Poly answered just seven minutes prior to the end of regulation. A rebound of a shot by Jared Pressley was redirected by Jose Rivera into the net, knotting the score at 1-1.

Cal Poly notched seven shots on goal, including two each by Pressley and Kaba Alkebulan. Notre Dame challenged Boehme 14 times, including seven shots on goal by Jon Gallagher.

Irish goalkeeper Chris Hubbard made six saves.

Notre Dame had nine corner kicks to three for Cal Poly.

Coach Steve Sampson’s Mustangs continue their season-opening four-game road trip with two matches on the East Coast next weekend. Cal Poly faces Georgetown on Friday and No. 6 Maryland on Labor Day.
