Notre Dame Men's Lacrosse | Apr. 27, 2014 | Notre Dame Athletics
CHESTER, Pa. - Notre Dame went on a 6-0 run in the third quarter and held on to defeat Syracuse, 15-14, to win the 2014 ACC Men's Lacrosse Championship Sunday afternoon at PPL Park.
"I couldn't be more proud of them," said Notre Dame coach Kevin Corrigan. "We didn't play tentatively like a team that's afraid and not sure what's going to happen to them. We played like a team that's going to go out and win games.
"The one thing was, no matter what happened - good play, bad play - we turned it right around, focused on the next play and played really hard and really fearlessly."
Matt Kavanagh, the Tournament's Most Valuable Player, led the Irish with four goals and two assists, including back-to-back goals in the pivotal third quarter.
Jim Marlatt tallied three goals and one assist for Notre Dame, while Conor Doyle had a career-high five points.
