COLUMBUS, Ohio - A program record-tying seven goals from sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh propelled the seventh-ranked Notre Dame men's lacrosse team to a 13-7 victory over Ohio State on Tuesday afternoon at a blustery Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
The contest was delayed for over a half hour due to snow and Ohio State's Carter Brown scored the only goal of the opening quarter. It marked the first time all season the Fighting Irish were held scoreless for an entire quarter.
"We knew it was going to be an ugly game with the conditions and it was an ugly game. I think both teams had over 20 turnovers," Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan said.
Following the slow start, Notre Dame (4-2) responded with five consecutive goals in a span of 5:33 to claim a four-goal lead by the 2:20 mark of the second quarter. Kavanagh scored the opening three goals for the Irish with the first two coming 21 seconds apart. Conor Doyle and Jim Marlatt both registered scores in a 19-second span to make it 5-1.
