SOUTH BEND — The battle of No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 3 Syracuse lived up to the hype Saturday with Syracuse pulling out an 11-10 victory in front of 3,405 fans at Arlotta Stadium.

The teams were tied, 3-3, after one quarter before the visitors forged a 7-5 lead at halftime. The Irish came back in quarter three to outscore the Orange, 4-2, for a 9-9 tie heading into the final quarter.

From there, Syracuse's Nick Mariano scored twice to give the Orange a two-goal advantage. Junior midfielder Brendan Collins pulled the Irish back to within one at 11-10 with 6:49 left in the game to close the scoring.

Notre Dame's best chance to level the score came in the final 15 seconds, as Brendan Gleason fired a shot from close range, but Syracuse goalie Evan Malloy made the save.

Gleason led the Irish with two goals. Senior midfielder Sergio Perkovic had a team-high three points off a goal and two assists, and sophomore attackman Ryder Garnsey added a goal and assist.

Notre Dame is 5-2 overall and 1-1 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. Syracuse is 7-1 and 3-0.
