Notre Dame, Ind. (Alumni Stadium)
Saint Louis senior Anthony Brown scored with 16 seconds in regulation to send the game into overtime, and the Billikens ended up tying No. 17 Notre Dame 1-1 Friday in the season opener for both teams.
With time winding down and the host Irish clinging to a 1-0 lead, freshman Chase Niece sent a restart from beyond midfield into the box. Brown ran to it and flicked it past the Notre Dame keeper to tie the score at 1-1.
Notre Dame opened the scoring in the 63rd minute on a goal by Patrick Berneski.
Saint Louis out-shot the Irish 12-6, while Notre Dame managed a 6-4 edge in corner kicks.
The Billikens (0-0-1) return to Hermann Stadium to face the Memphis Tigers on Sunday. Game time is 5 p.m.
