Notre Dame beats Providence, 9-1

The #6 Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team put away a 7th straight win in a row against the Providence Friars. Notre Dame is now 8-1 overall while Providence is 1-9.

Sophomore attackman Westy Hopkins led the Irish offense with three goals and one assist. Freshman attackman Conor Doyle added in two goals for ND, while sophomore midfielder Jim Marlatt had one goal and two assists.

Junior goalie John Kemp made seven saves in 52:44 of action for the Irish. Yet another strong game for ther Irish defense.

“I’m really happy with the way we played today,” said Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan. “Providence is a tough out. They don’t have a lot of wins, but if you look at their scores, they are playing one and two-goal games with a lot of people. They play for that, to be there in the end. They have done that with just about every team they’ve played this year. So I’m really pleased with how we played today. We didn’t give away anything. We were disciplined, smart and fundamentally sound.” -UND.com
