Sixth-seeded Notre Dame opened on a 7-0 run and held on for a 13-5 win Saturday over unseeded Harvard in the first round of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship at Arlotta Stadium.

The Irish were spearheaded by a four-goal performance from senior attackman John Scioscia. Sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh added two goals and three assists. Goalie Conor Kelly, a junior, made a career-high 17 saves for the Irish.

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.

Notre Dame faces Albany on May 18 in the NCAA quarterfinals at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. The unseeded Great Danes beat No. 3 seed Loyola (Md.), 13-6.
