Missed scoring opportunities were mounting, and it appeared this was another miss for the Wolverines. Just a split second later, though, vexation transformed into euphoria. Hallahan’s curling ball took a fortuitous bounce high off the turf, flying into the top left corner of the goal and giving the Michigan men's soccer team the lead. Hallahan lept emphatically into the air and pumped his fist, the stadium buzzing at the sight of his heroics. His goal proved to be the difference, as the Wolverines (10-4-4 overall, 4-1-3 Big Ten) held on to defeat rival Michigan State (3-12-3, 3-3-1) 2-1 in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament.
