Goal "That Wasn't" -- How Did That Happen?


Folks, if you were watching the Notre Dame vs. North Dakota NCAA Hockey Tournament game tonight -- you saw what looked like the game winning goal with 0.5 seconds left on the clock.  

The photo above shows the game clock with time left when goal was scored!

The TV clock showed that -- as did the "green light" (video below) that went off showing the goal was scored in regulation time... 

Here was Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson talking about the referee's call:

“I just based it on what was on the scoreboard and they’re telling me there’s two different clocks? We’re playing to the scoreboard, not to a clock that’s not visible to anybody,” Jackson explained. “When the green light went on I assumed there was still time on the clock. At least that’s the way it is in the NHL.”

Well, the referees called it a NO GOAL -- forcing OT, which Notre Dame fortunately prevailed.

But, what if they had not? 

It will be interesting to see if the NCAA releases a statement later tonight or tomorrow on why they disallowed the goal...

Notre Dame Talks OT Win Over North Dakota!

 

Notre Dame begins the presser at the 3:30 mark -- please advance the video.

As far as all-time NCAA records:

  • Notre Dame's 35 point half time lead was the largest in women's NCAA history for a lower seed against a higher seed.
  • First team in NCAA Tournament history (Men or Women) to beat a higher seeded team by 40+ points

 As far as all-time Notre Dame records:

  • Most points scored in the first quarter of NCAA tournament game -- 35
  • Most points scored in a NCAA tournament game:  108

OT: With the IRISH Out, I'm Rooting for BONA

Brey, Laszewski, Hubb & Goodwin Talk Loss

Thank You Notre Dame Men's Basketball...

 

The Fighting Irish gave us FIVE GREAT DAYS -- it's a shame it had to end...

Now, we wait to see how many of our seniors decide to come back for their COVID YEAR -- all will have that option if Coach Brey extends it to them.

Thank you to the SENSATIONAL SEVEN -- you gave us all you had these last 3 games.  It was fun to watch and if you come back, I think you've all learned we can win playing a little more to the basket on offense and we can play some defense!

Just need to hit the weights a little harder, work on driving to the basket, hanging on to the ball and finishing.  And, wouldn't it be nice if we added a few more players to the rotation next season.

Oh, would we all have loved seeing you guys take on Duke...

Next year!

THANK YOU!

Notre Dame's Two Hits Beat Michigan State

 

The 3rd ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame were held to just TWO HITS yesterday in their game vs. Michigan State -- but, the TRIPLE and HOME RUN did the trick!  

Additional facts:  Notre Dame did not strike out.  They walked (twice) or, put it in play.  Which makes "only two hits" quite surprising.  And, I'll bet Notre Dame does not have another game like this all season when they only had 27 at bats in 8 innings.

Truly shocked (and IMPRESSED) we won a game like this.

Todd and his wife Janet are wonderful people and huge Notre Dame fans! 

Unfortunately, Todd's Toyota lost control and he hit a wall on lap 89 of last night's 200 lap race in Las Vegas.  He was able to return to the race and ended up finishing 21st in his first start in five years in the Camping World Truck Series.
