The Notre Dame Fighting Irish lacrosse team suffered a rather disheartening loss last weekend against the Georgetown Hoyas. They had a very nice bounceback win on Sunday and showed that they're ready to charge up for a title run again.

All six starters on offense recorded multiple points in a 14-9 victory over the Maryland Terapins. Jake Taylor led the Irish in goals with four on the day, while Devon McLane (3G, 3A) and Jordan Faison (3G, 2A) each had monster performances in midfield. Pat Kavanagh added a goal and three assists in the winning effort.

The five-goal win over Maryland is tied for the second-largest margin of victory between the Fighting Irish and Turtles by either side in the all-time series. That could be a sign that the Hoya loss has got this team refocused on defending their title.

Notre Dame is now 3-1 and will next face off against Ohio State next Saturday at noon.
