NOTRE DAME, Ind. - No. 6 seed Notre Dame opened the game on a 7-0 run and never looked back en route to a 13-5 win over unseeded Harvard in the first round of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship on Saturday afternoon at Arlotta Stadium.
The Fighting Irish offense was spearheaded by a four-goal performance from senior attackman John Scioscia, while sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh added two goals and three assists. Goalie Conor Kelly, a junior, made a career-high 17 saves for the Irish, who have a season-best four-game win streak.
Notre Dame (10-5) kept Harvard off the scoreboard for the opening 23:45 of the contest. The five goals allowed tied a season-low total for the Fighting Irish and it also matched the least amount ever surrendered by Notre Dame in an NCAA tournament game.
