A program record-tying seven goals Tuesday from sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh propelled seventh-ranked Notre Dame to a 13-7 victory over host Ohio State.

The contest was delayed for over a half hour due to snow.

When Ohio State’s Carter Brown scored the only goal of the opening quarter, it marked the first time all season the Irish have been held scoreless for an entire quarter.

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.

Kavanagh’s seven goals matched the program record held by Randy Colley (1993 vs. New Hampshire) and Ryan Hoff (2007 vs. Drexel). Kavanagh also had an assist in the game. His eight points were one shy of tying the school record.
