Bradley University refused to let its record crowd go home disappointed, rallying for a 2-2 draw against the defending national champion and preseason No. 1 team, Notre Dame, in front of 3,099 fans Tuesday night at Shea StadiumJust when it seemed the visiting Irish took the life out of the crowd with a go-ahead goal in the 79th minute, the Braves netted its second equalizer of the night on Christian Okeke‘s toe poke inside the right post at 84:09. The fifth annual Danny Dahlquist Memorial Game was billed as the “Battle of Champions” and the exhibition lived up to the hype, despite its exhibition status.  While Notre Dame is the defending national champion, Bradley is the defending Missouri Valley Conference Tournament champion. As a preseason exhibition, and after the two teams also played a reserve game earlier in the evening, no overtime was played Tuesday.  Notre Dame earned a 1-0 victory in the 60-minute reserve game on the strength of Jon Gallagher‘s 52nd-minute goal.
