Irish lacrosse team tops Ohio St in overtime

A David Earl goal with 1:41 remaining in the first overtime session gave the No. 9 Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team a 7-6 victory over Ohio State on Saturday afternoon at Arlotta Stadium. Earl and fellow junior midfielder Zach Brenneman both notched hat tricks for the Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame (5-2) trailed 6-4 entering the fourth quarter, yet the Fighting Irish defense held the Buckeyes scoreless throughout the final period and in overtime. Brenneman sliced the deficit to one (6-5) with his third goal of the day at the 8:49 mark of the fourth quarter. Brenneman has a team-best four hat tricks this season. Earl knotted the game with 3:20 left in regulation.

Saturday was Notre Dame’s second overtime contest of the season. The Irish fell at Drexel, 7-6, in overtime on March 9.

The Fighting Irish will open BIG EAST Conference play next Saturday against Rutgers at Arlotta Stadium. Game time is slated for noon (ET).
