No. 6 seed Notre Dame opened the game on a 7-0 run and never looked back en route to a 13-5 win over unseeded Harvard in the first round of the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship on Saturday afternoon at Arlotta Stadium.

The Fighting Irish (10-5) offense was spearheaded by a four-goal performance from senior attackman John Scioscia, while sophomore attackman Matt Kavanagh added two goals and three assists. Goalie Conor Kelly, a junior, made a career-high 17 saves for Notre Dame. 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 will face Albany next Saturday in the NCAA quarterfinals at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. The game will take place at either noon or 2:30 p.m. (ET) on ESPN2. The Great Danes topped No. 3 seed Loyola, 13-6, earlier today. Albany is not seeded.
